URBANA, Ill. – It’s exciting to once again welcome high school students to the University of Illinois to explore all you can be part of after graduation.

If you care about science and the environment, you will be especially interested in a new opportunity. Experience ACES Visit Days will spotlight programs that feature a food, farming, and family foundation.

You will learn so much. And even experience some surprises.

“Our new events in late April and early May will shine our college in a different light. Young students and their families will find areas of study that fit their passion and their future,” says Susan Coppess, undergraduate recruitment coordinator for the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES). “Agriculture and food are key to what we do, and ACES also offers a lot more than some high school students imagine.

“So, we invite them to see for themselves. They can expect engaging demonstrations to help them envision just how much impact they could make on society and our world.”
