Are you a College of ACES alum with a young grandchild, niece, nephew or friend, who’s looking for an opportunity to return to campus? If so, mark your calendars for July 9-10, 2015, and register now for the all-new ACES Family Academies.

ACES Family Academies is a new program from the ACES Alumni Association that will offer classes from each ACES academic unit, geared to children ages 8-12 years. The alumni and youth will attend classes together, experience dorm living for a night, and attend a family friendly college tailgate/dinner. More than 30 hands-on educational classes are slated for the program, taught by our outstanding College of ACES Faculty!

Alumni will have an opportunity to share their campus memories of living in a dorm, eating in the dining hall and going to class!  We are thrilled to see alumni and their grandchildren or family members relive their college days and create new memories!

Registration is now open, at the official ACES Family Academies website, and will close by April 1, 2015. Registration numbers are limited; cost is $195 per person.

"With the holidays so near, I think it would make a great gift - for the grandparent or the grandchild," says ACES Alumni Board President Kenny Eathington. "With a little Illini gear, it could be a lot of fun on Christmas morning."
