Firm Tour

Hey Everyone!

This past week I had the opportunity to visit the firm WSB& Associates through the mentor program that the College of Design offers. My mentor as well as others in the program who work at WSB invited us to their firm. We were able to tour the firm and to take a look at some of their current projects.

WSB is a consulting and design firm that focuses on engineering, planning, environmental and construction services. They have a small division of landscape architects that work alongside other divisions within the firm. This was my first tour of a firm, and it was really interesting to see what a day in the life of a landscape architect would be like. Along with the tour, we had the chance to present our final projects to a few of our mentors' colleagues and receive feedback. While slightly intimidating, it was a great experience and their comments were very helpful. This tour was a great way to end the semester and start break!

Hope you all enjoy the time off! See you in a few weeks!
