Sweet potato fries and selfies

Sweet potato fries and selfies

There’s no doubt about it, we know how to have fun in the College of ACES. It’s been a whirlwind of activities around here – activities that have drawn me closer to my ACES family. From eating sweet potato fries with the Chancellor at the Illinois State Fair to taking selfies with Dean Kidwell at the Farm Progress Show, I feel fortunate to be a part of a college where people really do matter. And we just don’t say that to lure people here. We live it out each and every day. The connections we have allow us to collaborate in an effective and meaningful way in order to do amazing things that make a difference in people’s lives.

Tomorrow night, we’re bringing our ACES family together for our first ACES Fall Festival. This event is going to be an awesome opportunity to meet the people who make up the College of ACES. From freshmen to emeriti professors, we welcome you to join us this Thursday, Sept. 14, from 4 to 6 p.m. on the North Lawn by the Stock Pavilion for a free BBQ dinner, the chance to win great prizes, and most importantly, time to network and get to know your ACES family better.
