Trecia Cintron is a fourth-year undergraduate student at Ohio State University - Knowlton School of Architecture. She is passionate about hydrological systems and topographic conditions in the urban and suburban environment. This interest has provided a knowledge base on watersheds, earthwork, and varying diverse terrains. Her 2021 spring studio examined racial inequities related to urban tree canopy and the quality of life in midwestern cities. The studio allowed her to collaborate with community organizations and residents on the southside of Columbus, Ohio.
Cintron received the Wilbur J. Garmhausen Scholarship (2020-21) for knowledge of plants and professional communication skills. She has also received the Lawrence W. Walquist Endowed Scholarship (2021-22) for strong leadership and advocacy in landscape architecture. In addition to her new role on the Black Landscape Architects Network (BlackLAN) Student Council, she is President of the Ohio State Student Chapter of the National Association of Minority Landscape Architects (NAMLA).
