“The interior design club exists to give students enhanced learning opportunities outside of the classroom, and to introduce them to real-world contacts within the design community,” says Beth Low, Salt Lake Community College Interior Design Club’s past president and a current student in the interior design program. The group commits to developing relationships with fellow students and design professionals, increasing its members’ interior design skills through creative projects and utilizing talents in service to the regional community. “We do this by visiting places like lighting showrooms, furniture manufacturers, green building education centers, high-end kitchen appliance showrooms and through hands-on classes such as tiling and furniture refinishing,” says Low. “We also participate in service projects that relate to our future professions.” Interior design club’s mission statement: “As Salt Lake Design Society, SLCC’s interior design club, our focuses will be four fold. Increase our skills as interior designers through challenges, critiques and competitions. Develop valuable relationships with fellow design students and design professionals in the community. Use design to serve the community. Have fun and build creativity. Each of these will help us better prepare to contribute to the field of interior design after our time here.”
