Mount Ida alumna Sees Success through Interior Design Passion



After speaking to Interior Design Professor Rose Botti-Salitsky about Mount Ida’s Interior Design Degree Program and learning that it is one of the few nationally accredited programs in the area, Patel’s decision to attend was quickly decided upon.
“Mount Ida was breathtaking to me – the campus, faculty members and ultimately the one-on-one interaction and guidance with faculty that I would be receiving throughout my four years and beyond really played a part in my decision to attend,” said Patel.
During her time at Mount Ida, Patel recalls being challenged by her professors; challenges that continued to push her and can be seen in the quality of her designs. Click to read the entire story

Patel was able to recently show off her furniture designs at the BDNY Expo in New York City with Modern Line Furniture’s sister company, Borghese Couture Hospitality which she assisted in launching.
