Columbus, OH, US



My name is Susan Earp and I graduated with my Masters in Architecture from The Ohio State University in 2011 and received my Bachelors of Science in Architecture in 2009 from Ohio State as well.

I am looking for a position at a firm where I can use my skills gained and am interested in the diversity of projects that your firm obtains. This diversity will help me along the path of IDP and gaining my license that I have already begun.

As you can see from my resume, I have had the opportunity to work at Meyers + Associates Architecture firm in Columbus, Ohio where I worked on construction documents, client presentations,physical and digital models, and plan and section details. I have been working for Ohio State's Recreational Sports Department in Marketing as a Graphic Designer for the past two and a half years. This opportunity has allowed me hone my graphic, presentation and design skills, while giving me a stronger knowledge base in the field of marketing and product design.

I have attached my resume with portfolio examples and my online portfolio can be viewed at If you would like a full pdf version of my portfolio, I would be happy to get that to you.

Thank you for your time,

Susan L. Earp

The Ohio State University, BArch, Architecture

Bachelor of Science in Architecture leads to a four-year pre-professional undergraduate degree. The curriculum combines a general liberal arts education with concentrated studies in architecture. As such, students receive a rigorous intellectual training in the sciences, the humanities, and the arts, as well as a direct, hands-on approach to synthesizing this knowledge in the architectural design studios. The Bachelor of Science in Architecture instills a broad cultural awareness and, most significantly, the ability to act upon this awareness. The undergraduate degree provides the student with a strong educational foundation for not only the profession itself but also for the other arts, business, and public service. Students who desire professional architectural registration will be required to study for an additional two years to receive a National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) accredited Master of Architecture degree. Admission to the program is selective.

Ten-week program in Italy explored the architectural history of the cities in and around the central hub of Rome. A workshop with Italian architecture students led to the design of an art pavilion for a local airport. This team-building exercise led to a better understanding of how architecture is executed and explored in different parts of the world.

Distinction, Award

The senior year Distinction Thesis Project focused on mass transportation for Columbus and its plug-in opportunities to adjacent cities or existing rail lines. An investigation on the population of existing U.S. cities with mass transit and how Columbus' population and need for the same benefits was conducted. Cities around the world with a similar population and city plan as Columbus were used as precedent examples for how the city could be transformed.
