Biographical Information

Hi! My name is Anna McAlister, and I am a third year in the Landscape Architecture program here at UGA. I am from Charlotte, NC and came into the program as a freshman. I have never looked back.

Interestingly, I accepted UGA thinking – I would be an art major, but the day of orientation a friend called who was already in Landscape Architecture BLA. He invited me to check out the CED’s Jackson Street Building. One visit to the studios and my major was switched right away. Now, as a Landscape Architecture student with a horticulture minor, I am challenged everyday with engaging design problems. The work combines my love for land, science, art, and the environment. It is truly a one of a kind.

Landscape Architecture Interests: Hand graphics, sketching, residential design, park design, conservation agriculture, urban planning, and historic preservation
