The Weitzman Preservation Student Association (PRESTA) is a student-led organization that represents students in the Department of Historic Preservation at the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design. The purpose of the PRESTA is to advocate on behalf of students’ interests, meaningfully engage with faculty, and foster a sense of community among students. It does this by holding regular meetings, bringing speakers to campus, and organizing events. The PRESTA also strives to represent students' opinions and concerns to faculty and administrators through regular communication. It has three main focus areas: curriculum development and faculty relations; career planning and professional development; and social events and outreach.
The PRESTA consists of volunteer representatives from each class year and strives to reflect the diversity of student’s interests and backgrounds. The PRESTA representatives for academic year 2023-2024 are:
- Arden Jordan (MSHP'24)
- Anusha Khansaheb (MSHP'24)
- and Shae Spahle (MSHP'24)
Members of the PRESTA can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to reach out to them at any time!
