“CSU made a promise and delivered. I also delivered by putting in the effort. I’m now working as a horticulture and gardens consultant for private estates on the barrier islands. I use my CSU education every single day on the job and in my own garden. I’m finally respected as a horticulturist. I would absolutely recommend this program.”
