{Majors for Creative Types...TONIGHT!!!}


{Student 2 Student: Brianna-Interior Design}

Learn more about the Interior Design major from Brianna at Student 2 Student: Majors for Creative Types on Tuesday, March 24th from 7-9 pm in Rod Library by the Book Bistro!

Name: Brianna

Major: Interior Design Minor in Textiles and Apparel

Year: Junior

Why I am excited for the Majors for Creative Types event:
I am excited to get to share information about my major because a lot of people I feel like have many misconceptions about what Interior Design actually is and what Interior Designers can do.  Also, many people on campus don't know that UNI offers this major!   

Why I love UNI?
I like UNI because it is a bigger school, but with a small school feel.  What I mean by that is that the majority of my classes are in the same building and classes are the perfect size in order for me to learn.  I also like being able to engage more with my professors which I feel is essential to learning.

Why I love my Major:
I like that my major allows for me to be more creative, is teaching me how to act professionally and is preparing me for the business world. 

Fun Fact:
I am a transfer student from Scott Community College.  I recently just donated 8 inches of my hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, and in some of my free time I volunteer at the Cedar Bend Humane Society as a dog walker.

{Student 2 Student: Bethany Chatterton-Graphic Technologies}

Learn more about the Graphic Technologies major from Bethany at Student 2 Student: Majors for Creative Types on Tuesday, March 24th from 7-9 pm in Rod Library by the Book Bistro!

Name: Bethany

Major: Graphic Technologies

Year: Senior

Why I am excited for the Majors for Creative Types event:
I love telling people about my program!  It's not very well-known on campus, so it's enjoyable to share about it.   

Why I love UNI?
It's a big school, and you're going to get those core classes that are pretty huge. But, the classes for my major, GT, max out at around 25 students and they are all taught by qualified professors.  Small class sizes are really nice when you're learning the tougher content in your program. 

Why I love my Major:
I love telling people about my program and how applicable it is to so many careers after graduation.  We are very fortunate to have one of the best hands-on labs in the state and the students take full advantage of it throughout their courses.  We don't sit in front of a computer every single class.  We design different things for projects, and then we get up and make them.  Throughout the years, you'll build a big portfolio just through all that coursework!
