"You have a nice personality, but not for a human being." - Youngman
I have an orange personality. People with orange personalities tend to be irritated by those who are do not focus and are exceedingly lazy. Whenever I listen to a boring class project, I tend to zone out and think of other things including what they could have done much better. Those people are probably lazy procrastinators. People with orange personalities tend to be creative, artistic, fun-loving, witty, and spontaneous.

All prospective applicants are urged to follow a college preparatory program in secondary school, taking courses in studio art and art history where possible. Graduation from secondary school is a prerequisite, although in certain cases a high school equivalency diploma may be accepted. Candidates for the Bachelor of Architecture degree must have completed two semesters of algebra, one semester of trigonometry, and one year of science (preferably physics). Courses that develop visual and design skills, such as studio drawing, are strongly recommended.
Applicants must provide official secondary school transcripts of all academic work accomplished through their most recent grading period. If you are attending school in another country, all of your academic credentials must be translated into English by an approved translator.
Two drawing samples are required of all candidates. Your first drawing must reference a bicycle. Your second drawing should be chosen from this list of options:
- In the course of a single calendar day, draw 25 related images in a single visualization
- A drawing that uses both sides of the sheet of paper
- A drawing that interprets the phrase “Inside/Outside”
Each drawing must be done on a sheet of white paper measuring 16" x 20" (40 cm x 50 cm). Your bicycle drawing must be done using graphite pencil. For your second drawing sample, you may use graphite pencil or any dry (fixable) medium, a water-based medium (such as ink, watercolor or gouache) or a combination of these media. Do not, however, use any oil-based medium, or collage, for your second drawing and remember that whatever medium(s) you choose for this drawing, you must be able to fold the paper to mail it to our office.
