2018 OU B.Arch graduate Collin Abdallah was recently awarded the Robert Bradford Newman Medal Award for excellence in acoustics based on his 2017-2018 contributions to Associate Professor Butko’s Gallery Acoustics Research Project (also known as the “sOUnd lab”). The medal, funded through the Acoustical Society of America Newman Fund, was accompanied by $300 and a variety of architectural acoustics books. Collin is the fourth OU student to receive this prestigious award since 2011.
