Student and Alumni Voices

“A lot of the classes I took dealt with real-world scenarios. Learning what is required of you to do outside of college was tough, but now I understand the logistics of what all goes on in an environmental design, construction, city planning and landscape architecture profession.”

Armani Frye

Current Student; Environmental Design major, Construction Science minor

“The collaboration between construction science majors, interior design majors, and city planning provided me with a solid foundation to work well across multiple departments.”
