Send Student ASLA To LABash 2019

About Us

As the University of Maryland Student Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (Student ASLA), our mission is to lead, educate, and participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning, and artful design of our cultural and natural environments. We are dedicated to promoting the study and practice of landscape architecture and providing opportunities for self-development, service, and association among members and practicing professionals.

PARK(ing) Day 2018

What is LABash?

LABash is an annual student-run Landscape Architecture conference hosted annually since 1970. This year’s LABash will be held at the University of Georgia from April 4th-6th, 2019. The three-day conference features lectures from professors and professionals, hands-on workshops, design charrettes, and ample networking opportunities. The specialized workshops allow students to expand their skill set and better prepare them for the professional world.

EDSA Sketch Crawl

Last year, LABash was held at Penn State University. We interacted with hundreds of students and professionals from all over the nation, and many students walked away from the conference with internship offers, job contacts, and a priceless experience!

Chilly Day at Penn State

The 28 members of our group have personally committed almost $5,000 in registration costs, in addition to fundraising throughout previous semesters. Receiving only $1,250 from the Student Government Association, we fall over $5,000 short of the total cost needed to cover the trip. We turn to you to help us reach our goal. Donations will go toward ticket registration, transportation, and hotel accommodations. 

Smiles from Everyone
