HORT 299 is a class dedicated to hearing industry leaders talk to you about the day to day operations of their business. There are many benefits to seminar and you don’t have to be enrolled in the class to receive them. With all the many leaders in the industry coming here to talk to students it is a great time to network with them. Strike up a conversation, or have a resume or personal business card on hand. These people work on first impressions and are always looking to hire. Whether you are a freshmen or a senior always try and soak up what they are saying and make sure you stay in contact with them. Sometimes its about who they know, and that is what networking is all about. Here is a link to the schedule for the semester.
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.
