Sophomore Class Field Trip to Las Vegas!

The ASU Interior Design Class of 2014 visited Las Vegas, Nevada earlier this month for three days (February 1-3). The visit was part of a field trip for their hospitality studio class taught by Susan Norman. Some of the highlights included visiting the World Market Center, the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute designed by Frank Gehry, and CityCenter.  The students were also given a private tour of the Presidential Suites at Wynn and Encore, XS and Surrender nightclubs, as well as the Lakeside Restaurant by the designers of Wynn themselves. Some pictures of the fabulous trip are posted below. 🙂
