Why live with us?
The Design Exchange Learning Community is a full year living and learning experience open to direct from high school first-year students enrolled in any major in the College of Design. The residential component allows students to build a support network as they transition to ISU and the College of Design. All Design Exchange students are enrolled in a one credit seminar each semester (DSN S 110 in fall and DSN S 111 in spring) that encourages their personal, social and intellectual development. All students will take DSN S 131 in the fall together. They will take DSN S 102 in the Spring. Students also participate in academic and social activities arranged by a peer mentor.
Open to all majors in the College of Design: Art and Design, Integrated Studio Arts, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Industrial Design.
