What is the best thing about studying horticulture at NC State?

The best thing about studying horticulture at NC State is the community of horticultural students/professors, the available hands-on-learning opportunities, and all the fun we have along the way!

Do you have plans for after graduation? Are you currently working?

After graduation, I plan to work in the horticultural field and return to the maple nursery!
