Formerly the MSU Student Chapter of ASID, we decided to create a general Interior Design Student Organization (IDSO), so that we could bring more options and resources to the students. The IDSO is a group unique to MSU, where we promote interior design as a profession by providing professional and educational resources for our members. The ASID (the American Society of Interior Designers) and IIDA (the International Interior Design Association) are two national organizations that we work with. Become a member today, and get connected with professional designers around the state! For more information about the group, email IDSO or visit the IDSO website.
