2. Individual or Group Visits. The College of ACES welcomes individual and group visits to campus. We will gladly host you for the day, provide personalized experiences, including facility tours, school alumni host or hostess, class/laboratory observation, visit with faculty, student panels, and more. Both high school and community college students are encouraged to take advantage of this great opportunity.

To set up a visit, feel free to contact me directly, email, or call 217.333.3380.

3. Guide to ACES Majors. If you would like us to send you or your school counselor a Guide to ACES Majors packet, please respond to this message, and we will get it in the mail. The guide includes a description of all the ACES majors and minors offered as well as the concentrations in each area. It is an informative resource for individuals exploring college and career opportunities related to food, agriculture, communities, economics, and the environment.

4.  Thank You. On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to thank everyone who attended the State Agronomy, Dairy Foods, and Meat Technology Career Development Events this past Saturday. I hope it was a rewarding and educational experience for all the participants. If we can assist you in any way, feel free to contact me. We look forward to seeing you again at Super Friday in April 2020!
