I'm glad that I went to a CIDA accredited school. Other graduates at my school go on to work for the top design firms in the world or start their own design firm. It's located in such a great area with growing communities, high-end showrooms and endless job opportunities. Students do an internship in the BA and MA program so they leave with actual experience on their resume to go with their portfolios. Overall, the portfolio I have put together while attending IDI has gotten me jobs in the field.
IDI is a great school for interior design, price is cheaper than most private for profit schools, professors are great, I noticed that most people who go here are white middle aged women who want a change in their career, campus is very small and clean
I love my experience at IDI so far. Teachers have personally experienced and are professionals at the topic they are training their students in. I love the hands on drafting experience and believe I'm going to be well-trained to enter the Design Field once my studies are complete.
