Networking Night

Networking Night gives students the opportunity to interact with companies in various areas of the horticulture industry. The event follows a speed dating format that allows the students to meet with several companies throughout the night. Every year we invite companies that range from Greenhouse Production, Nursery Management, Marketing, Landscape Design, and more! This event is perfect to connect with possible employers and develop a strong professional profile at the same time.
