Professor Kristin Lee, AUD Chair and Associate Professor of Interior Design, explains:
“The Interior Design Senior Showcase (SSC) represents the pinnacle in four years’ worth of work by our BFA students.  Our program aims to straddle the line between the current design industry, as well as honoring a traditional BFA education: we graduate work-ready, well-rounded creative thinkers. 
Guided by faculty, our graduates spend their fall semester researching a topic of their choice. 
In spring semester, it’s all about design.
Professor Annamaria Lambri, AUD Associate Professor of Interior Design and Outreach Coordinator, and Professor Chadi El Tabbah, AUD Associate Professor of Interior Design, have been working with students since January to question, to think critically and develop the design solutions that are on display at SSC. 
We are very proud of all our students, and they will be missed!”
