Every year, Interior Design students are required to showcase their portfolios. This gives them the opportunity to graduate with a presentation portfolio which will help them in job interviews.
On Wednesday, Interior Design students set up their portfolios in the Commons Room and presented them to the public. Following the showcasing of portfolios, an awards presentation was given to close out the evening.
Each semester, students get real-life experience by creating projects that teach and apply the concepts and skills needed for the industry. Hands-on learning helps students better retain the knowledge they gain and gives students opportunities to use their skills.
