Alumni Success

I owe a great deal of my post-graduation success to Judson University. While I was there, I developed a solid design and professional foundation that helped me transition into the design industry. What I’ve always valued about the design program was the dedication my professors had in seeing their students succeed. They made sure we were as prepared as possible to take on the design world. When projects got challenging, I could always count on them and my studio mates to provide critical feedback.
