What surprised you the most about UNI?
I was surprised how similar classes in college were to those in high school. I took multiple college credit courses in high school, and once getting to college I felt prepared for the work-load and challenging tests.
What do you like best about major?
My favorite part of the Interior Design program is the opportunities it brings to students. The faculty are amazing, experienced and involved within the interior design field outside of the classroom. The program also provides opportunities to get involved in the field and become more aware of things happening in the design world. Every year, students and professors take a trip to a large city in the Midwest where you spend a few days visiting showrooms, architecture and design firms along with tourist attractions. I had the amazing opportunity to go to St. Louis this past year, which was a great experience to have through the program.
Years from now, what will you remember most about UNI?
In the future I will remember all the friendly people I met throughout my college experience. Coming from Minnesota, I was more familiar with the “Minnesota Nice” stereotype, but coming to Iowa there is also a thing as “Iowa Nice!” Everyone I have met so far in college has welcomed me with a friendly face and smile, which will leave a lasting impression of my experience at UNI.
