I worked in the turf field through High School and realized that I wanted a career in the turf industry.  The desire to enter the turf industry prompted me to cater my collegiate search to schools with good turf/ag programs.  I felt OSU had the best program, and it’s where I grew up; so it was an obvious choice.  I feel that the professors are by far the greatest strength.  The commitment to students, on a personal level, to help them get the most from their time at OSU; as well as helping them to secure a future in the industry is second to none. Every single day I’m talking agronomy with 4-10 field professionals.  Without my background attained from the coursework at OSU, there is no way I would be able to hold a professional level of agronomic conversations/discussions with my colleagues.
