BERKELEY COLLEGE STUDENT FROM QUEENS RECEIVES SCHOLARSHIP FROM
AMERICAN SOCIETY OF INTERIOR DESIGNERS, NJ CHAPTER
Berkeley College is proud to announce that the recipient of the 2012 Jay Slack Memorial Educational Scholarship, awarded by the New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (NJASID), is Or Moladjan, a resident of Flushing in Queens, NY. The scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic accomplishments and financial need.
An international student from Israel, Ms. Moladjan is pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Interior Design at Berkeley College in Paramus. She is on track to graduate in July 2014 and aspires to run her own Interior Design business.
“Or’s vision for design is very global. Her passion and technical skills – combined with creative problem-solving skills and attention to detail – are why she stands out in class and achieves exceptional grades,” said Jason Lee, Faculty Liaison for the Berkeley College Student Chapter of NJASID.
Students with a BFA degree in Interior Design are prepared for careers in areas including residential or commercial interior design; exhibit design; design management; and merchandising and retail display management.
