PRESS RELEASE

AUBURN UNIVERSITY – For its annual survey,
“America's Best Architecture and Design Schools 2013,”
DesignIntelligence magazine has once again ranked Auburn University's
undergraduate interior design program in the College of Human Sciences
among the top five in the nation.

The program was also deemed strongest in educating students in communication and cross-disciplinary teamwork.

“In a world of global business and rapidly changing technologies,
Auburn's interior design program is committed to educating and mentoring
students to become practitioners who are professionally and
technologically competent, globally aware and socially engaged,” said
June Henton, dean of the College of Human Sciences.

Graduates of Auburn's interior design
program, which is in the Department of Consumer and Design Sciences in
the College of Human Sciences, consistently earn placement with the top
100 architecture and design firms each year.

DesignIntelligence named the Auburn program the best in the nation for 2012.

“Our strong reputation as one of the best design programs in the
country goes hand-in-hand with our continued commitment to giving Auburn
students the best value for their design education,” said Carol
Warfield, head of the Department of Consumer and Design Sciences.

The annual ranking from DesignIntelligence for interior design
programs accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation is
based on input from the nation's architecture, design and engineering
employers, as well as deans and chairs of design programs.
