Why should someone be a Landscape Management 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: We took the whole family (TJ, age 16; Cade, age 14: JJ age 10; Billie, age 8) to Disneyland and Sea World this summer. A great time and our first "family" vacation where we stayed in a hotel the whole time!
