IDEAS (Interior Designers for Education and Sustainability) is a student organization dedicated to educating its members about the profession of interior design and sustainability, while enhancing their learning experience through relationships and service activities.
IDEAS is one of the most active student organizations at Virginia Tech that is related to an academic major. The primary activity of the group is the IDEAS Friday Lecture Series. The group also organizes field trips to study outstanding examples of interior design and architecture and to industry trade shows, such as NeoCon East.
Equally important, the IDEAS members are dedicated to community service. They participate as a group in Relay for Life, The Big Event, Y-Toss, and other valuable service activities.
IDEAS members also join ASID and/or IIDA and participate in the Virginia chapter activities of those professional organizations.
