Landscape Preview Day

Friday, May 9

Are you an outdoor person who likes working with your hands? Do you love creating beauty in a yard? Do you have a passion for plants and aren’t afraid to show it?

If you are considering a career in the landscape industry, we invite you to join us Friday, May 9, for a unique college visit experience. Students will learn about degree options affiliated with Landscape Horticulture and hear about the career opportunities a green industry degree can offer.

While students participate in an outdoor plant ID walk and then create a 3D design with Google SketchUp, parents will meet with staff in informative sessions arranged specifically for them. After a complimentary lunch, you and your parents will hear from an industry insider about internships and careers. You can also tour campus with a Student Ambassador and visit the bookstore. We hope you’ll join us for this interactive and informative day!
