Nicholas LeSchofs graduated with honors from Utah State University in May with a BS in Residential Landscape Design and Construction and an LAEP Minor. He will pursue a Master of Landscape Architecture. After interning at BrightView, he discovered a passion for creating sustainable environments. Being on Utah State University CAAS and GRAD councils keeps him active within the school community. Nicholas is from San Diego, California. He is a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan, enjoys his guinea pig, barbecuing and learning piano. This past summer he worked with the PSC department at USU researching tart cherries and three-way crops (oats, barley, and alfalfa) and then completed an arts and humanities study abroad trip to Europe.
