- You plan on going to graduate school in environmental fields, such as environmental management, forestry, landscape architecture, urban and regional planning, sustainable agriculture, or water resources management.

Students manage the Beloit Urban Garden (BUG) that produces sustainable, organic, and ecologically-sound food connections to the Beloit College campus. Working as part of a team, you will grow produce, learn how to sell it, and research how the food you grow fits into our local food ecosystem and infrastructure. BUG maximizes Wisconsin’s growing season and is designed to be aesthetically pleasing to humans and important pollinators.
