01.30.20 – Students gain job market insights at this year's Master of Landscape Architecture Student-Professionals Networking Event

On Tuesday, a group of Daniels Faculty landscape architecture students seized a valuable opportunity to meet established professionals in their chosen field.

This year's Master of Landscape Architecture Student-Professionals Networking Event was held in the main hall of the Daniels Building. Representatives of 19 firms and public agencies spent the evening engaging in "speed networking" sessions with students. Through a series of short conversations, students were able to gain insights into the realities of transitioning from graduate school into the job market.

Here are a few photos from the night.
