Undergraduate Student

Nadia Colquiett

Major: Interior Design

Expected Graduation Date: May 2016

  • Minor: Sustainable Natural Resources

I have always been interested in and appreciated the almost infinite uses of natural resources. In my college career, I had trouble finding a way to reflect that in my education. After a thorough look through the minors offered at Virginia Tech, I discovered sustainable natural environments. Not only is this minor relevant to design in general and its movement towards sustainability, but it has allowed me to more fully explore what I enjoy about the environment. I feel very strongly that being a part of this course is essential to further understanding the business side of designing a product and implementing it in the marketplace. This experience will undoubtedly help me develop unique skills that will give me a professional edge in the workplace while fulfilling my interests of user-centered design, problem solving, and sustainable thinking.
