Andrew Belingheri
Andrew Belingheri, Par 3: I would strongly urge anyone who has a passion for cultivating relationships, beautifying the environment, and growing a career to consider the Landscape Management program at BYU. So much of our world is ‘going green’ and the interest is building by the minute. The training and education I received at BYU prepared me to enter the dynamic green service industry well prepared and highly compensated. From business development and account management to landscape design/architecture and construction management the need for talented horticulturists is great. The award winning and nationally recognized Landscape Management program at BYU is a major player in leading, training, and developing the talent that will dress and beautify our planet for years to come.
 
 Roel Ventura Roel Ventura, Ambius: Earning a BYU B.S. in Horticulture/Urban Landscape has tremendously helped me to achieve many of my professional and personal life's goals. It is a wonderful and appropriately evovling program that is both up-to-date with major current green industry trends and prepares graduates well for a rewarding and lucrative landscape professional career. One of the program's best assets is it's highly and commendable involvement with the annual PLANET Student Career Days. Here, students have all the opportunities to demonstrate their gained textbook knowledge with hands-on competitive events and more importantly, it is here, students have the opportunity to find respective companies to work for and eventually, become the future leaders of the green industry.
 
 Allan Broadbent Allan Broadbent, The LaurelRock Company: Graduates from BYU’s Landscape Management major are very highly regarded in the Green Industry. The valuable mentoring that I received from professors in the program helped prepare me to begin my career as a Landscape Designer/Project Director with a distinguished firm in Southwestern Connecticut. BYU is well-connected to key industry leaders and associations that consistently provide students with rewarding internships and exciting full-time employment opportunities upon graduation. The Landscape Management major is one of BYU’s finest.
 
 Wendy Vawdrey Wendy Vawdrey, Self Employed: A B.S. degree in Horticulture/Urban Landscape design from BYU has set me on a fulfilling path doing what I love most, designing and creating spaces that draw people outdoors. There is nothing more satisfying than revegitating a disturbed canyon or innovating new ideas for a backyard space that was once plastered with lawn. I have successfully moved away from the office cubicle and out in the sun to enjoy the color, texture, and fragrance of plants on a daily basis. BYU has a progressive and comprehensive program that prepares a student for the many paths a Horticultural degree can take them. I am impressed that every year a new and innovative workshop is added, or an outdoor lab is created to move the student from the textbook to hands-on experience, which is truly the best preparation one can have in the green industry.
