Juniors in the Interior Design Program had a chance to visit Merchandise Mart in Chicago.

Eleven juniors in the Interior Design program recently went to Chicago, Ill.  The goal of the trip was for students to visit firms and industry partners and to participate in other activities meant to enhance their learning experience.  They visited the Art Institute, explored numerous interior spaces and went on an architectural boat tour that explained how Chicago’s architecture played into the city’s growth after The Great Fire.

Interior Design holds convocation, senior internship presentations

September 10th, 2012 Comments Off on Interior Design holds convocation, senior internship presentations


Convocation for the Interior Design program was held on Sept. 7.

Associate Dean David Lewis, PhD, got things started by sharing some impressive facts with students.  Dr. Lewis said the College of Architecture, Art, and Design received 151 peer-reviewed regional and national awards, which averages to about one in five students.  Lewis said students in the Interior Design program received 26 of those awards and beat the average even for the College.

The associate dean also discussed the positive results of a national survey about student experience and encouraged students to get involved in honor societies, lectures, exhibits and study abroad.

Beth Miller, the director of the Interior Design program, then told students how excited she is about the fact that the first certified designers in the state will receive their certificates in the next few weeks – a project she said has been in the works for almost ten years.

Miller also discussed some recent achievements by students and faculty before asking Robin Carrol, a professor and chair of the scholarship committee, to announce this year’s recipients.

The event ended with presentations from seniors about their summer internships.

Senior Interior Design Student receives national Celia Moh Scholarship

June 29th, 2012 Comments Off on Senior Interior Design Student receives national Celia Moh Scholarship

Taylor Webb, a senior MSU Interior Design student, was one of six chosen for the $30,000 scholarship.

“I was extremely excited when I found out I received the scholarship. I was made aware of it over a year and a half ago and have done everything I could to get it since then. One thing I’m really excited about is being able to attend the High Point Market in October; it will be such an awesome experience!

After I graduate I hope to find a job at a large firm and practice in corporate design for a while. Eventually, I would like to do residential design, which is what I have been doing for the past year at Something Southern in Starkville. I absolutely love every minute of it!”
