“I’ve always loved floorplans and creating beautiful spaces, so I chose the Interior Design Technology program. My instructors are very supportive and passionate and I’ve learned a lot about the industry and actual work situations.”
“It was an incredible honour to have my design be nominated for the BILD awards. The Emberly is the first home I have ever designed and having it come so far is a testament to the wonderful support Lethbridge College gives its students. It also reaffirms that I have made the right decision by returning to school to take Interior Design Technology.”
