Marion Starer"Attending Bergen Community College’s Horticultural Program was one of the best decisions I ever made. The professors are world class, enthusiastic, and dedicated to imparting their knowledge to their students. Classes are offered during both the day and the evening, making it easy for working adults to get a degree. The department has a computer-controlled greenhouse, a floral design lab, computer-aided landscape design lab, and other facilities well-equipped with all the tools necessary for learning the art and science of horticulture. The classes are small, and all students get the individual attention they need. The skills I’ve acquired, and the knowledge I’ve gained, have been, and will continue to be, invaluable to me in my chosen career. Thanks Bergen!"

"Bergen Community College was the foundation of my success. It not only reinforced my passion for horticulture and design but also provided me with the core curriculum. I needed to thrive in the business world. I am forever grateful for my experience and the enthusiastic support of Dr. Steven Fischer and Jack Fisher and proud to be part of this very special family of students and faculty."
