Cory Mills is a Bachelor of Architecture candidate at the Boston Architectural College. Prior to studying at the BAC, Cory received an Associate in Applied Science degree in Architectural Technology from the Pennsylvania College of Technology. This degree emphasized skills with working drawings and producing construction documents which helped him find work almost immediately.
Growing up, Cory enjoyed drawing and sketching. The duality of architecture, both the technical aspect and the creativity with which you approach each problem, is something that was attractive to him. His first opportunity in any sort of drafting application was in a high school CAD drafting class.
One positive experience that Cory has had while at the BAC was participating in the Florence Study Abroad Program and traveling throughout Italy for a month in the summer of 2010. He was finally able to see and experience the precedents that he has learned and read about in both history and design principles early on at the BAC. He states, "it was an opportunity to understand and appreciate great places and spaces and to fully immerse myself in a foreign culture while living, working, and playing in a new kind of architecture."
In 2013, Cory was awarded The Mark Walter Young Scholarship. He has served as a Student Ambassador for New Student Orientation and as a Student Representative on Atelier from 2013-2014, where he worked on wellness programs such as bringing yoga to campus. Cory works part-time at Mikyoung Kim Design as well as with the School of Landscape Architecture at the BAC.
