Students are able to utilize the various opportunties on campus to get hands-on experience in their program, including:

  • Large-scale dairy and farm operation, with over 900 acres of cultivated land, and 1500-head dairy

Recent trips have included at trip to Jordan, where students developed a landscape design plan for the archaeological site of Tell Hisban, and a trip to Lesotho, where students helped a school and orphanage improve their access food and clean water.
