LABash 2017 is already just around the corner, with less than 2 months left! If you needed any convincing and haven't gotten your registration yet, keep on reading!

1. You will learn things outside of your regular curriculum.

Get messy in a soils workshop, learn about how travel can change your career, explore how the largest estuary in the nation affects the work of a landscape architect, and learn how employers view millennials in the workplace. This is just a sampling of the topics that will be covered at LABash 2017. Even better, you get to build your own schedule! Attend only the sessions that sound interesting to you - you’ll have a lot to choose from!


Session from LABash 2015 at San Luis Obispo.



2. You will discover a new place.

College Park is within the DC Metropolitan area. Throughout the 3 days, you’ll be just a Metro/Uber ride away from some of the most monumental sights in the nation. See where MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech took place, be steps from the President’s front lawn, take a stroll along the National Mall, and explore world renowned museums at your leisure (and mostly for free!). Our Closing Ceremony is just a short walk from the Washington Monument and the White House. Keep an eye out for our Tour openings - they’ll put you in the heart of DC during sketch crawls, riverfront explorations, and art tours - and all just in time to see the world-famous Cherry Blossoms bloom!

3. You will make memories and long-lasting relationships with people from all over the continent.

This is your chance to meet the most enthusiastic members of our generation of future landscape architects, urban planners, plant scientists, or architects! You’ll dine together, learn together, explore together, and maybe even take goofy photos together at the Land8 Happy Hour (like this one).





4. You can earn LA CES credit.

That’s right, licensed people. This conference doesn’t just benefit students. We are aiming to offer at least 4 credited sessions for you. Just follow us on Instagram to stay tuned for our announcement when we reach this goal!



5. You will make valuable professional connections.

Attending LABash can give you the edge you need in jump-starting your career. You’ll get to know dozens of professionals in the field who can help you with internship/job opportunities, give you valuable career advice, and be a contact for the future. Don’t forget to bring your resume and portfolio! Our career/informational expo will be open throughout the 3 days, opening dozens of valuable connections for you.

6. The Land8 Happy Hour!

The Land8 Happy Hour: LABash-Style sponsored by ANOVA is returning again this year! On Friday night, you’ll enjoy a night of dancing, an open bar, and fun at a local favorite, Terrapin’s Turf.
