One great thing about the Plant & Landscape Systems degree:
Students learn by doing; gain a lot of knowledge and experience and have fun, and then land great and diverse jobs that they can actually enjoy. The Student Career Days is unique to our industry in which the students, faculty, and industry merge together to benefit all. We all want to work together to help out the students.
One recent adventure:
Last June stayed at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, where they have 9 acres of interior gardens...SPECTACULAR! Then in August, went to Atlanta to pick up a son from his mission...went to lots of Civil War sites, the Atlanta temple, Stone Mountain and a Braves game.
In your opinion, where is the Plant & Landscape Systems major headed?
Great things lead to greater things!
