Young alumni give back

Young alumni give back

Although the classroom and laboratory experiences that ACES students obtain is top-notch, and instructors are some of the best globally, there is still value to be added by interacting with some of the top professionals in the field. Each year, graduate students in Food Science and Human Nutrition have the opportunity to be matched with an external mentor. This diversifies the points-of-view they are exposed to and instantly deepens their professional network. Alumni and other professionals are encouraged to share their knowledge and experiences as mentors, guest speakers or internship supervisors.

We recently had the opportunity to recognize a few young alumni who have shared their knowledge and skills with ACES students. Susan Zaripheh and Nate Matusheski are both very accomplished alumni, who have taken the time to give back to this institution, specifically in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, making it a richer place for others. Congratulations to both Nate and Susan on receiving the 2013 College of ACES Alumni Association Young Alumni Award.
