“The interior design program is kind of like home to me. Every professor
is professional and kind. They are always open to students’ questions and actively,
enthusiastically help me solve problems. I not only learned professional knowledge,
but also gained a wealth of experience by participating in projects, contests and
conferences, all of which laid the foundation for my success.”
