What Our Students Say
The interior design program has provided me with so much over the past four years. With the help of my professors, I was able to find an internship that has helped me grow as a future designer. I have also been inspired by the amount of knowledge and connections that not only my professors, but classmates have. The interior design program has smaller class sizes, but we are a big success. I have been able to work side by side with classmates on creating designs for real life clients both on and off Central Michigan University's campus. The interior design program has ultimately prepared me for a fulfilling career in design."
