"I graduated from Vincennes University in 2014 with a degree in Interior Design.  After VU I transferred to IUPUI to complete my Bachelor’s degree.  I am currently working at Niehaus’ Inspire Design Center as a Kitchen and Bath Designer.  What I liked most as a student at Vincennes University were my classes and program.  I made lots of friends and the teachers were fantastic!"                                       Dani Hunckler VU 2014
