The Alpha Rho Chi Bronze Medal, Award

"Awarded to the graduating senior who has shown an affinity for leadership, performed willing service for the school or department, and gives promise of real professional merit through his or her attitude and personality.

The members of Alpha Rho Chi firmly believe strong leaders are just as essential as strong designers to the architectural professions. It is vital to our efforts to produce individuals committed to public service, as well as individuals committed to maintaining Architecture and the Allied Arts as noble professions. We also assert that high scholastic achievement is not necessarily an accurate measure of leadership or service. The Alpha Rho Chi Medal commends those students who show true professional merit beyond the design studio and their academic career."
