Undergraduate students in the Department of Horticulture are assigned to a minimum of two advisors: our staff advisor and a faculty mentor. Prospective students should meet with the staff advisor first and she will help match students to a faculty mentor in the student’s area of interest. Current students can meet with either the staff advisor or their assigned faculty mentor. Students are required to meet with their advisor at least once a semester.
Our staff advisor is available to help prospective and current students with major exploration, general degree requirements and policies, academic planning, campus resources, etc.
Our faculty mentors are available to help current students with internships and careers, graduate school preparation, research opportunities, etc. Contact information for faculty mentors is available on the faculty profile page.
