CAP Field Trip Week

Five decades of our students and faculty, armed with sketchbooks and curiosity, have shared a tradition of collaboration and discovery. One week each fall semester is identified as the CAP "Field Trip Week", a week when all students and faculty go out to explore interesting sites, cities, and buildings across the continent.  With the intent of studying and discussing exemplars first hand, this enriching journey exposes all to new ideas, environments, and cultures. Each semester, students return with memories of experiences they will not forget. 

US Trips

Our student teams have traveled to inspiring sites and cities throughout the United States. To embark on a trip in our country, please review the following information:


  • Emergency Information
  • Conduct & Statement of Responsibility
  • Liability Release Agreement


Estimating the cost of a field trip is difficult because the number of students participating and sharing the cost of the trip vary from semester to semester.

Field trip expenses typically covered are:

  • airfare
  • lodging
  • area transportation
  • tour-entrance fees

Field trip expenses typically do not cover meals.


Students will need to take a Field Trip Student Financial Services Deposit form to the Student Financial Services Office (Lucina Hall B31) along with payment.


CAP offers a scholarship to help you cover the expenses of a field trip. To learn more, contact the dean’s office.
