COD Interior Design Students Earn Prestigious Awards


Byline: COD News Bureau

College of DuPage Interior Design student Allison Schutz received the Michelle Roberts Student Award in the fifth annual Recognizing Exemplary Design (RED) competition hosted by the Illinois chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA).

During the prestigious industry competition, attended by 300 design community members, Schutz was one of 13 winners chosen from 91 submissions that came from more than 40 Illinois-based design firms, designers and students.

"Winning this award at the IIDA RED competition is very gratifying," said the Darien resident. "It solidifies my resolve, validates the passion for the dream I've had since I was 18 years old and helps me further recognize my own potential."

Schutz previously earned her bachelor's degree in graphic design and printing.

While she was accepted into a number of graduate schools across the country, Schutz chose the convenience and substantial cost savings provided by attending school locally at College of DuPage. Completing her degree in interior design from COD this May, she plans to find employment in a mid-sized design firm.

For the second year in a row, Schutz was also the first place winner of a design charrette sponsored by the Illinois chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). Held at the Chicago's Merchandise Mart, the one-day event brings together students and emerging professionals for an informative and challenging day of programming and networking.

Schutz said the competition wins help increase her recognition within the industry and validate the quality and value of the education offered through the Interior Design program at COD.

"These competitions provide a great opportunity to network with industry professionals and potential employers," Schutz said. "Our successes validate not only the skills of the students, but also the skills and experience of the instructors, who provide a lot of support, instill a strong work ethic and drive us to do more than we think we can."

Earning second place during the ASID charrette were COD Interior Design students Lyra Britton (Lombard) and Karla Herdrich (Aurora).

Britton said the training she's received at COD prepared her well to face the challenges of the charrette. …
