We’re proud to announce that our International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Campus Center was recently named Campus Center of the Year! We’re grateful to our Interior Design students, faculty and staff for making Sullivan Tech an amazing place to learn.

The ID department just completed a vignette during the Annual Festival of Trees and Lights. Students created a custom mantle piece, teardrop wreath, and mailbox cover. They also beautifully decorated an 8-foot Christmas tree! All of these items were auctioned off to benefit Norton Children’s Hospital. At the end of the quarter we’ll be supporting the CGD and DWD departments by attending the Reverse Portfolio Fair. We are excited to participate once again in the Dare to Care Food Bank’s, annual CanStruction event. We’ll collaborate with CAD to design and construct a large structure entirely from canned food. Our creation will be on display at one of the local shopping malls. It’s tons of food and tons of fun! The IIDA chapter is maintaining its campus center status, due to having such a large active membership. The organization just completed a Skype event with all ID schools in the state, called Interior Talk Live! The students documented a residential design project from start to finish including all the stakeholders and disciplines required to complete the project. Eight students and two instructors recently attended an NKBA chapter event at General Electric discussing Universal design and the importance of kitchen and appliance design. It was cool to see the latest prototypes GE has to offer. Keep in touch with ID news on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!
