Online Courses Attract Students Locally and Nationally

Shown above is a map of the residency locations of horticulture students enrolled in HOR 160 Plant Materials 1 and HOR 134 Greenhouse Operations. There are 14 unique data points (students) in all, but some in WNC are so tightly clustered that you can't see them.

The exciting news is that in only the second year of offering these courses we have attracted students from South Carolina, Maryland, and Montana.

Special Thanks to Pete Kennedy for pointing me towards an easy-to-use web-based geo-coding tool.
