Landscape Architecture Student Places Third in Annual Graduate Exhibition

Greg Tenn, a graduate student in the Department of Landscape Architecture, recently placed third in Penn State's 27th Annual Graduate Exhibition, which challenges graduate students to present their work in clear, comprehensible terms to people outside their fields of study.

More than 250 graduate students participated in the competition, which includes performances and research and visual arts presentations.

Tenn’s poster, entitled “An Examination of Typological Variation in Susquehanna Riverfront Towns,”  considers factors that have historically influenced development in the Susquehanna River Basin by linking quantitative and qualitative analytical methods.  Part of his master’s degree capstone project, this research will help identify opportunities and constraints for future waterfront growth in the region.
