The Saddleback College Interior Design Department has a variety of resources available for students.
Interior Design Club
The Saddleback Interior Design Club is dedicated to informing and educating students on the opportunities available to them in the Interior Design field. We do this by participating in National Design Organizations such as ASID, IIDA, NKBA, and NEWH, attending Interior Design industry meetings, booking powerful and informative guest speakers at our club meetings, and helping each student expand their network of colleagues and contacts to secure their futures as successful upcoming local Designers.
