    “My intent was to complete a two-year program and transfer to Harrington College of Design to complete my bachelor’s. I reached out to Harrington and asked their opinion as to which was the better program. Without hesitation they recommended COD, and I never looked back. It is a very technical program that still offers hand drafting and kitchen and bath design,. Additionally, the program coordinator has an extensive commercial design background with a focus on lighting, which enhances residential and commercial design. All instructors have an industry background and are still actively involved in the industry."

    "Being taught in-depth about the many disciplines within interior design by passionate teachers makes a world of difference. I believe that a teacher’s enthusiasm and positive relationship with the students greatly affect the quality and receptivity of the material, and many of my teachers had that."
