Calling all Nature Lovers!

The Design and Articulture Club is looking for enthusiastic, hard working, and involved students to join our award winning organization to help build our educational display at the Philadelphia Flower Show.

We are an award winning multi-disciplinary organization here on campus that is focused on designing, building, and displaying an exhibit at the International Philadelphia Flower Show every year.

This organization is a great way to get involved on campus, while gaining leadership experience and organizational skills. There are so many ways to get involved in our organization no matter what major.
