Landscape/Horticulture Technology

Come Home to Penn College

There's still time to join us for the Landscaping/Horticulture 40th Anniversary Celebration, Friday, October 11, during Homecoming 2013.

Homecoming 2013 at Penn College

It's a perfect time to catch up with former classmates and faculty – Master Teacher Rich Weilminster is among those planning to attend! – and see what's changed since you graduated. An alumni panel will enlighten current students in the morning, followed by lunch at 1 p.m. and tours of the Schneebeli Earth Science Center, and a 5 p.m. reunion dinner at The Valley Inn in DuBoistown.

Register online by Sept. 27!

This summer we once again had many students at various locations for their internships. From botanical gardens to landscape and tree care companies, nurseries and others students were able to continue their learning this summer in a wide variety of roles.


One of the biggest benefits the students gain from these experiences is the diversity the green industry offers. Students come to fall classes prepared and willing to share what they've learned over the summer.

Share with students, parents, friends, faculty, and anyone interested in this "green career" industry.
