So what exactly is the Round Barn Society? The College of ACES Alumni Association launched the society in September 2012. The honorary society was formed to honor alumni who have made an impact and provided significant contributions to the college's rich heritage. Members of the society include all past board members of the Home Ec Alumni Association, the Ag Alumni Association, and the ACES Alumni Association, in addition to all past winners of the ACES Award of Merit including Ag and Home Economics Award of Merit and all past outstanding young alumni recipients.

Honorees are being recognized with a Round Barn Society pin and will receive special correspondence from the ACES Alumni Association, including sharing opportunities to get involved. A newsletter and survey will be sent to members in early January 2013 to seek input from members and provide updates from the College of ACES. More than 350 alumni were considered charter members of this group. A list of charter members can be found online.

We look forward to engaging outstanding alumni through the Round Barn Society in the upcoming years!
