If I was not a professor, I would: probably work in landscape design, specializing in native prairie plantings.

One piece of advice that students should know: A lack of confidence can be just as dangerous as overconfidence.  Even if you are not at the top of your class, everyone has something valuable to contribute so know your strengths and share them with the world.
