Undergraduate students in the Department of Horticulture are assigned to a minimum of two advisors: our staff advisor and a faculty advisor. Prospective students should meet with the staff advisor first and she will help match students to a faculty advisor in the student’s area of interest. Current students can meet with either the staff advisor or their assigned faculty advisor. Students are required to meet with their advisor at least once a semester.

*Due to COVID-19, all face-to-face appointments are now being offered remotely. Prospective and current students can schedule appointments (phone, email, or Microsoft Teams) with our Staff Advisor through Starfish. Information on virtual advising can be found here. For contacting faculty, we encourage you to send an email.
