Rendering Day: Monday 2/23!

Rendering Day Reminder:

Rendering Day is Monday, February 23rd from 12:00 to 2:00.  The program lists it as Friday, February 20th.  We changed the date right after the kick-off meeting due to a conflict with some testing this week.  Just want to be sure that everyone is planning on being there on Monday, not Friday.

If travelling by bus, they will need to park at Lot 13, South of Doyt Perry Stadium.

If there is inclement weather on Monday, and schools close, Rendering Day will still go on.  We realize that this will significantly affect attendance, but there really isn’t time to reschedule.  The only way that we will cancel is if BGSU closes and/or there is a Level 3 in Lucas or Wood Counties.

Thanks.  Looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday.

Yesterday afternoon was the 2015 High School Design Competition Kickoff!  Many schools' classes were cancelled due to the snow, but those who attended had a good discussion about this year's program and competition.

This year's project will be an athletic center for Lourdes University.  As our "client", Lourdes has graciously shared their master plan with us, and in addition they will be hosting this year's awards banquet (at the Franciscan Center)!

This year's program (and the CAD site plan) is posted here.

Please note the following:

  • No new parking is required for this building
  • The property to the West and South of the building area is private residential property; the entry to the building must face East or North (preferably towards the walking path) .
  • The toilet rooms and locker rooms in the program can be simply considered "space"; that is, students do not need to lay out the toilets and lockers; if sufficient area is provided that will be OK.

Best of luck for this year's competition!  If you have any questions, please send an email to the committee at
