How do you catch a polar bear? You go out on the ice, and cut a hole in it. You then place peas around the hole...when the bear comes to take a pea, you kick him in the ice hole!
Why should someone be a Plant & Landscape Systems major?
It prepares you right out of school to attend the graduate school of your choice (of course only if you have the grades and preparation) OR you are able and prepared to start a career in the landscape industry right out of school.
What is the best part of our program?
The quality of students, no doubt!
Tell us of a recent adventure:
