Advisor Comments (Anne Spafford)

Seth is a Horticultural Science graduate who has taken the Landscape Design, Gardens & Urban Environments path. 

Seth finished off his last year taking his remaining NC State classes from his hometown of Elizabeth City, NC; proving just how flexible and resilient he can be.  He is also graduating having completed a minor in Ag. Business Management.

He is a solid designer, who works diligently to make sure he is addressing all the important site conditions and client requirements necessary to ensure successful designs. He is equally adept at thinking about broader contextual issues as well as design details. This will no doubt serve him (and his future clients!) extremely well. 

Congratulations, Seth!
