Art Kaha's 80th Birthday! Illinois School of Architecture
Art Kaha is celebrating his 80th Birthday on April 4th, 2019. He has been engaged with thousands of students and colleagues over his career - please help him celebrate by sharing your memories and good wishes!

Good News!   Retired Professor and Associate Director Art Kaha turns 80 years old on April 4, 2019 and we are suprising him with your good wishes!

Professor Art Kaha began teaching at the School of Architecture in 1974 and retired as Associate Director the first time in 2004.  After two years, he came back as an instructor and then as Associate Director.  He retired the second time in 2011. 

During his career, he served a large number of students as professor, advisor, and Associate Director.  He made it his homework to learn every student’s name in each of his classes.  And he saved any correspondence, cards, etc. he received from them. 

And why does his name bring up such fond memories?  Because he valued each student as a person.  Art’s door was always open.  He always made time for students – and he always listened. 

Would you join the School in honoring him on the occasion of his 80th birthday?  Please send greetings by posting to this blog, sending an email or send a card to him at this address: Art Kaha, Rm 104, TBH, 611 Lorado Taft, Champaign, IL 61820

Share a fond memory and/or wish him well starting at the end of March and through the whole month of April!
