Anthony Soster is hoping to continue his horticulture studies after graduation at MSU

Anthony Soster believes that he gets the most out of a bachelor's degree in horticulture from all of the hands-on experience he gets from his classes and his time studying abroad.

Featured Student

Anthony Soster is from Temperance Bedford and is currently working on his four-year degree in horticulture.

Why did you choose horticulture as your major/degree?

My high school biology teacher told me I should take a course in horticulture because I could bring plants into class. I enrolled in a horticulture course by freshman year and immediately switched my major.

What has been the best experience in your major so far?

I was able to attend a horticulture based study abroad in the United Kingdom the summer following my sophomore year. We were lucky to see some of the most beautiful gardens in the world.

What is the best selling point about your major that you would like others to know?

We have one of the most “hands-on” degree programs at Michigan State. We encourage students to get out of the classroom and learn about plants in the real world. You can be involved at any level of intensity in our program, from student organizations to research. We really have it all.

What are your future plans?

I hope to stay at MSU to continue my education in horticulture through graduate studies. I am still unsure of what I want to do after grad school, you could say that I am still figuring out what I want to be when I grow up.
