Christyanne Wheeler

Interior Design

Christyanne Wheeler, a recent alumna from Ramsey, Ill., knew she wanted to study interior design. She had attended Judson’s Interior Design and Architecture Camp and fell in love with the way design was taught at Judson. Because Judson was also a Christian school, Christyanne decided that it would be the perfect fit for her.

Christyanne chose to study interior design because of her love for renovating old homes. Although she was concerned about the preliminary art and design courses since she had not taken any art courses in high school, she was pleased with how her professors prepared her for her future classes and career. She knew that her professors cared deeply about each student and equipped them well to be successful in the workforce. She had the opportunity to study abroad and learned about interior design and architecture while studying in Italy and Spain for the summer. In her final semester at Judson, she had a preceptorship working with Chipman Design and Architecture. She also has helped a small country church create a building addition as a design consultant, and currently works for Hogan Design and Construction creating booklets for both clients and contractors.

Through her rich academic experiences at Judson, Christyanne not only completed a major in interior design but she earned a minor in architecture, which has made her ready to contribute powerfully to the design world. From her Judson education, Christyanne is confident in her understanding of design and how to approach it.

“I am extremely happy with my educationContinue . Looking back at my time at Judson, there were many times that I would be in my Architecture or Interior Design classes and think, 'I cannot believe that I am learning what I love,’” Christyanne said.

In addition to being deeply involved with her academic program, Christyanne participated in many other facets of life at Judson. She was part of the International Interior Design Association at Judson. Christyanne also was on the Volleyball and Track and Field teams throughout her time at Judson. She also traveled to Scotland on a Global Outreach trip her senior year.
