ISU INTERIOR DESIGN PROGRAM RANKED AS ONE OF NATION'S BEST

AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State University's interior design program has been ranked as one of the nation's best by design professionals.

The program, part of ISU College of Design's art and design department, was ranked 10th in a survey by "DesignIntelligence," a publication for the design profession.

Professionals with more than 300 interior design firms were asked to name schools from which they'd had the best experiences hiring employees.

"The College of Design at Iowa State University is one of the best kept secrets in the world of design practice," said Roger Baer, art and design interim chair. "The integration of the design disciplines in the college and the synergy that grows from them creates graduates that go on to distinguish themselves in all aspects of practice."

Iowa State's interior design program graduates nearly 40 students a year.

Other schools in the top 10, in order of their ranking, were the University of Cincinnati, Kansas State University, Pratt Institute, Cornell University, Auburn University, Syracuse University, Arizona State University, Rhode Island School of Design and the University of Oregon.
