Nathan Kluger spends his days at Sweet Briar College overseeing agricultural projects spread out across the college’s more than 3,000 acres.
From an apiary to wildflower pollinator meadows to at least 20 acres of vineyards and other projects, Kluger is working with the college to provide new revenue streams as well as “redefine student experiences.”
“[Sweet Briar] is a business that students get to experience and to participate in. Really the key component of that experience here is not just that you’re sitting in a classroom, but that you’re able to have a hands-on experience in your education. Not just with engineering, which is one of our key factors here, but also agriculture, and all that that portrays with business,” Kluger said.
