1. Career Exploration Workshops at Farm Progress Show
2. Free Illini Football Tickets & ACES Tours

1. Student Activity at Farm Progress

The College of ACES will be offering daily workshops titled "Visualize Your Future" for FFA members and agriculture students.

Students will investigate agriculture related careers and their responsibilities. After learning about careers in agriculture students will take a career test to find a career path that interests them. With a career path in mind we will discuss the steps needed to be taken in order to reach their goals. 

These exciting workshops will be presented by ACES seniors in agricultural education and offered at 9 AM, 11 AM, and 1 PM on Tuesday and Wednesday and 9 AM and 11 AM on Thursday. Presentations will be in the College of ACES Tent at the corner of Third and West Progress Street. Lots of free gifts, including three Polaroid Cameras and U of I swag will be given away.

Registration is not required but feel free to email me if you would like to reserve a spot!
