MSU Interior Design Students Fight For Their Program

Interior design students at Minnesota State University are fighting to keep the Interior design degree program at MSA from completely disappearing. More than one year has passed since Minnesota State University's interior design program was slated for suspension however the students are not giving up hope.

Interior design students have been upset ever since word of the suspension came down. And this semester, they've decided to take action. This past October students began a solemn march carrying a black coffin symbolic of impending death of the program from the classrooms where they've done so much creative work. They hauled it through the campus' academic buildings, through the Centennial Student Union and up to the MSU President's office.

Several semesters ago, MSU officials decided to suspend the program. Both Davenport and Academic Affairs Vice President Scott Olson said they brought in outside consultants to assess the program. Based on the opinion of the consultants, and concurring opinions of students and alumni they spoke with, they say the overwhelming consensus was that the program was substandard and would need an infusion of major resources to make it viable.
