ARIA Students Create Outstanding ePortfolios

Timothy Fuerst, a rising fifth-year architecture/interior architecture student received First Prize in the Outstanding ePortfolio Awards from Provost Timothy Boosinger at the second annual ePortfolio Award Luncheon in May that recognized the exceptional work of the thirteen finalists. The ePortfolios were judged on effective communication, critical thinking through reflection, technical competency, and visual literacy. Finalists were nominated by faculty or peers, and their ePortfolios were reviewed by a committee of faculty and students.

The Awards Subcommittee noted that Fuerst’s ePortfolio “carefully integrates aesthetic elements with professional written explanations, creating an engaging experience for his audience. He demonstrates the connections between his double major in architecture and interior architecture and the way his various experiences have shaped him as a designer.” To view Fuerst’s ePortfolio, go to:











George Criminale, a rising fifth-year student in architecture/interior architecture, was one of the thirteen outstanding finalists honored at the ePortfolio Awards luncheon. Both Fuerst and Criminale participated in Professor Margaret Fletcher’s Visual Communication course that focuses on effective portfolio design; the work of Professor Fletcher in this course has been funded by an Auburn University ePortfolio Project Grant. The grant was awarded to both Fletcher and Joel Beckum, the IT Coordinator for the College of Architecture, Design and Construction.
