The exchange program to INHOLLAND University is open only to Horticulture majors within the College of Agriculture.  If you would like more information regarding the program please contact Dr. Michael Dana(494-5923;  Please see below for information regarding application procedures.

While studying at INHOLLAND, you will be able to combine studying for the profession of your choice with living in one of Europe’s most culturally diverse and economically vibrant societies.

The Netherlands is famous for its horticulture. Wherever you are in the world, everyone knows about Dutch tulips, bulbs and cut flowers. Since the Dutch play such a leading industry role, the Netherlands is a great place to study horticulture.

On a world map, the Netherlands is very small. The longest distance you can drive from north to south will take about four hours. To the east the Netherlands borders Germany, to the south Belgium, and to the north and west the North Sea. Several features of the landscape will strike you immediately. To start with, it is extremely flat. There are a few hills in the southeast corner of the country, but even they barely infringe on the broad, unbroken expanse of sky that is so characteristic of Dutch landscape painting.

Water is everywhere – lakes, rivers, and channels of many types. Some 16 million people live in an area of some 41,000 square kilometers. Sixty percent of the population lives in the West Holland conurbation known as the Randstad, which is defined by drawing a line connecting Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht.

Delft is situated between The Hague and Rotterdam. The medieval structure of Delft is still recognizable in the old part of the city center. The past revives when you walk through this town along old canals, bridges, patrician houses, big churches, and the market square. The character and monumental buildings in different styles are still in tact.
