Extern Marks the Spot
It’s Spring which means Extern marks the spot! That’s right, it’s time for our latest SIU Extern to spend a week at the Fox Architects offices downtown. With Fox SIU Alumnus Dani Sheley playing host, the office welcomes an Extern from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale Extern Program every year.
In partnership with the SIU Alumni Association, the Extern Program provides students with professional experience in their chosen career fields. Matched with SIU alumni in a variety of career choices throughout the country, students are able to apply skills learned in the classroom in a professional work environment.
This year, Fox hosted Camy Burgess, from SIU’s interior design program. Camy spent an entire week at Fox, learning the ins and outs of the A/E/C industry. She sat down with veterans and newbies in a variety of roles, learning valuable information and creating connections.
Camy toured a couple of projects, both virtually and in real life. Below she uses Fox’s VR goggles that we leave with clients so they can virtually tour their spaces.
Camy also toured a recently completed project, comparing the project in the VR model vs. real life. (Spoiler alert: it looks amazing in real life. Keep an eye on the blog, as we’ll be sharing it soon.)
All of us here at Fox wish Camy the best as she finishes her degree and embarks on her career!
