    I'm a student at OSU Agricultural Technical Institue. I'm majoring in Landscaping Contracting and Construction. My main interest is in hardscapes. Is there anybody out there that knows of a web site or a place where I can find info on specific jobs that deal with hardscapes. If you could email me that would be great!
    thanks everyone!

    Haha well i guess that's kind of true, I'm just lookin for more info!
    As far as the intern this summer, no not as of yet. I'm still doing some checking. If you know a place that I can intern at and that provides housing I'm all ears!

    Marco - I think you need to elaborate a little more. Exactly what kinda info are you looking for?

    When we had our business in Ohio, we got interns from ATI.
    It was truly a learning experience for the young men we had.
    They had to write a paper at the end of the internship and
    do weekly assignments. I also had to do evaluations and the like.

    All were eager to learn and they all worked very hard.

    I would get with Mr. Hammonds (if I membered his name correctly) and he can
    hook you up with a company from the area you'll be living in during the summer.

    Best of Luck!
