honorary fraternity in achitecture

that architecture is much more than
a: technical profession led to .the or-
ganization of Alpha chapter of Tau
Sigma Delta at Michigan in 1913. The
society was originally founded because
of a belief that architecture owes to
the world a finer place in which to
live, a freer philosophy, and an in-


digenous culture as expressed in aims to provide a social and cultural

The purpose of the Architectural
Society is to give the student body a
means of promoting and developing
activities within the Architectural
School itself. This body is also in-
strumental in getting speakers to ad-

upon subjects related to their work.
The sponsorship of parties and mix-
ers falls upon this organization as
dofs the school paper "Designer" and
the annual Architect's Ball, held in
the spring. Student relations with the
faculty are handled mainly through
the Society.
The governin'g body of the Society
is composed of eight representatives,
called the Architectural Council. Four
are elected at large from the entire
school and four are elected by class
vote. The officers are in turn elected
from and by the Council.
All class officers within the school
are related to the Council by their
class representatives. It is the aim of
the organization to create a more
unified feeling throughout the dif-
ferent classes in respect to school
functions. For this reason, class ad-
ministration is carried on through
the cooperation of the class officers
and the Council.
