How will The Student Architect help me?

My goal here is to help you to avoid the mistakes that I made. I don't believe in learning the hard way, I believe in learning the smart way - from others. This allows you to evolve and make your own mistakes so you can then share your knowledge to help others. I also want to encourage you to do things you never thought you could.

Whether you're thinking about studying architecture, currently studying architecture, or practicing architecture, I want to help you succeed every step of the way!

So who are you, anyway?

I'm Chelsea Weibust. I earned my Master's Degree in Architecture in 5 1/2 years with a minor in History of Art and Architecture from Roger Williams University. I am now a freelance architectural designer, working toward earning my Architecture license. I consider myself a life-long learner and take every chance I get to share my knowledge to benefit others. I also make a point to encourage women to explore the architecture and design industry because there is such a need for the integration of both men and women in prominent roles within the industry.

How can I stay connected?
