A group of North Carolina high school students attended Turfgrass Academy April 5-6 to explore NC State University’s turfgrass program, learn about the turfgrass degree and turf career options.

They experienced the NC State University turfgrass program by visiting classroom and research facilities, gained hands-on-experience, and met with NC State University students to learn about their major. Friday featured dinner, quiz bowl, and guest speakers. On Saturday, participants met scientists, toured the campus, the turfgrass field labs, and Lonnie Poole Golf Course.
