Julianna Razryadov, a graduate student in horticulture, is studying the benefits of using native plants to boost the sustainability and aesthetics of green roofs.

As part of her research, she helped to establish a green roof at the HUB-Robeson Center. A gift from the Class of 2014 and constructed as part of the HUB addition and renovation project, the rooftop opened in summer 2016 as a space for Penn Staters to relax and enjoy nature from the center of campus.
