Last week, interior design students from Southern Illinois University Carbondale visited local architecture firms and alumni during their annual St. Louis trip. Fox Architects was among their stops. Students listened about the firm’s history and had the opportunity to see several of our projects from the last 40 years. They then took a tour of our office and snagged a photo op with the beautiful view of newly renovated Gateway Arch National Park.
Fox Architects has six alumni of Southern Illinois University Carbondale. The visit was hosted by partners Denise Fuehne & Janet Paley and myself, an Interior Designer with Fox. Other alumni include partner Adnan Omeragic, Heather Taylor and Zach Foppe who all hold a Master of Architecture degree through the online program.
“Southern Illinois University Carbondale has provided me with a stable foundation for a successful career in architecture. It has instilled in me an “out of the box” way of thinking which has benefited me in the professional field.” – Adnan Omeragic
I am thrilled to have a great alumni network at Fox Architects and have the opportunity to host and get to know students pursuing the same field of study. This industry is exciting and now is a great time to be a designer!
Best of luck to all the students as they continue in their education at SIU. Go SALUKIS!
