30th Annual AIAS Pumpkin Carve

Oct 26th, 2018 09:00 am to 09:00 pm

The Auburn University Chapter of the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) is excited to be hosting its 30th annual Pumpkin Carve. Pumpkin Carve began as a studio project and has now turned into one of the most celebrated events within the School of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture here at Auburn University. The event is one of the largest fundraisers of the year and allows AIAS to provide other activities for the architecture students and community.


On the day of the event, the AIAS invites all students within the University as well as alumni and community members of all ages to gather in the courtyard of Dudley Hall to carve pumpkins. Judges, invited from the local community and the college, select the best pumpkins and award prizes donated from local businesses. Pumpkin Carve is a much anticipated event and is enjoyed by the students, faculty, and community. This year, Pumpkin Carve will be held on Friday, October 26, 2018.
