Design at Meredith College


[MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER 1: I’m
from Morocco, and I was really interested
in traveling and going somewhere else for school. I decided to apply. Meredith is one of
the greatest school, like, women colleges
in the southeast US. And that really
encouraged me to attend. I wanted to get into the
interior design program because it’s an
accredited program. SPEAKER 2: Our program is
well known in our area. So most people
contact us and say, I have an internship opportunity. Could you post this information? They really do have a
lot of different sorts of opportunities. If possible, we even
encourage our students to do more than one. Maybe one on the commercial
side the industry and one on the residential side
of the industry, because it gives them that opportunity
to see what both sides sort of looks like. [MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER 1: We have people from
other companies come and mentor us how to do our resume,
how to present ourselves, how to find a job. So it prepares you really
well for after graduation. SPEAKER 2: Within
our program, we do have several interior
design study tours. We’ve offered some
interior design courses in Sansepolcro, Italy. We were there with
a group of students and had a fabulous
opportunity to work on a retail store design with
a local architectural firm. And the principles of that
firm had worked for many years with Prada. So everything was very
glamorous and high end. And it was a great
opportunity for our students. SPEAKER 1: The study abroad
opportunity contribute into helping you learn cultures
and learn other people, how people act, and how
people design their homes, because each country
or its culture design their houses different. Coming here really
helped me learn more about the Western design. It really helped me mix
what I have from my culture and what I gained from
the Western culture. And both really helped me, like,
gain my unique sense of design. And that was one of
the things I really wanted to do after I graduate
is when I have my own business, I really want to have
kind of like studio that mix between
the Western culture and the Moroccan culture to
bring something new to the area that is from my country. The overall experience
that I took over here, I feel more mature and confident
with myself go on and find at a job or an internship. [MUSIC PLAYING]
