I chose UM’s MLA because of its leadership in ecological design where my interest resided. It is unique for MLA program not being found in Architecture School but in School of Natural Resources and Environment. And the interdisciplinary interactions with students in different focuses like Sustainable System and Conservation Ecology provide us with different perspectives towards ecology in addition to design.
I chose to join SNRE because they has the best landscape architecture program related to the ecological and environmental design practise. We also have the best studio atmosphere where it is friendly and encouraging. We have a great time learning from the faculty, former students and most importantly, from each other. This is the environment you could never find in any other architecture dominated or design dominated school. SNRE met all my expectations and provides even more.
I chose U of M’s MLA program because of its great reputation as a leader in sustainable design. It is incredibly unique for a LA program to be found in a School of Natural Resources, and it gives us great access to a wealth of knowledge about sustainable design and the opportunity to interact with colleagues across disciplines. As a designer, U of M has provided the technical skills that I need in addition to a strong interdisciplinary experience.
