Send Student ASLA To LABash 2018
As the University of Maryland Student Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (SASLA) our mission is to lead, educate, and participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning, and artful design of our cultural and natural environments. SASLA is dedicated to promoting the study and practice of landscape architecture and providing opportunities for self-development, service and association among members and practicing professionals.

LABash is an annual student-run Landscape Architecture conference hosted annually since 1970. This year’s LABash will take place at the Pennsylvania State University from April 5th-7th, 2018. The three-day conference features lectures from professors and professionals, design workshops, charettes, and ample networking opportunities. Specialized workshops allow students to expand upon their skill set and prepare them to enter the professional force.
Last Spring LABash2017 was held at the University of Maryland! We hosted over 300 students and professionals from all over the nation. Students walked away from the conference with internship offers, job contacts, and a priceless experience.
The 28 members of our group have personally committed almost $5,000 in registration costs, in addition to fundraising throughout previous semesters. Receiving only $1,100 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 accommodation. Thank you for your time!
