“The professors’ experience in the industry combined with their knowledge
of styling and visual merchandising as well as textiles and sustainability prepared
me to obtain a job and win a national merchandising award. The summer internship program
provided me real-world experience with internationally known stylist Samantha Brown
in New York City. More than a degree, this program gave me knowledge, experience and
the confidence I needed to start my career.“
