The organization was
first created to help establish relationships between design
professionals and design students. Since the establishment
of IDEA, professionals in many different professions have taken their
time to come and speak to the students, offering invaluable advice.
IDEA is open to all
As IDEA has grown, one major component in which the active students have incorporated into the organization is community service. The members of IDEA have enjoyed their time as they help the local community, in hopes that this service would leak out into the rest of the world. The members of IDEA have partnered with Habitat for Humanity, Harmony Haven Animal Shelter, and other local non-for-profit organizations over its few years of existence.
IDEA has a core group of students who help facilitate the organization's functions. These students are vital to have and contribute their time for other people's benefits. IDEA meets as an organization every other Wednesday night at 5:00 p.m. during the regular school year. Fees included for being a member are $2 for the entire year.
