My name is AJ Hottman.  I am a junior at Colorado State University current working on getting my bachelor's in Landscape Architecture and Planning.  Since I was born and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado I have grown up loving the outdoors and nature. I ski, bike, hike, any thing i can do to be outside.

      Before I went to Colorado State University I also had the chance to live in Osnabrück, Germany (now my second home) on a one-year exchange courtesy of Rotary International. This was a great experience, not only did it give me the chance to learn another language and meet new people but it really opened my eyes to what a cool world we live and made me really want to see more. I figure if your experiencing new things and smiling along the way it's probably a pretty good sign that your living life right.
