For inspiration for this new semester, we thought we'd highlight our interns for the past year. In the past year, BYU-Idaho's horticulture department has been represented by 35 interns in 13 states spreading across the U.S. We've been represented down the east and west coast, ranging from Hawaii to New York. Our students have been great at opening doors, finding opportunities, and keeping up our awesome intern reputation. The Horticulture department encourages you to keep an eye out and find those opportunities. They offer classes like Internship Preparation and Seminar. They go on expeditions and trips to encourage networking. Students should take advantage of these things offered by the university. Learning on the job is such a great experience!
Our aim for the Department of Horticulture at Brigham Young University-Idaho is to nurture understanding of both the art and science of Horticulture. Students learn experimentally in the classroom, laboratory, greenhouse, and ten acre Thomas E. Ricks demonstration garden as they pursue an Associates or Bachelors Degree. Using the medium of plants, students develop habits of hard work, enlightened minds, and healthy living that assist in gainful employment opportunitues.
