The College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES) invites you to join us at Explore ACES -a fun, interactive day to learn more about the academic and career opportunities available through ACES!

We understand that choosing a college is one of the biggest decisions you will make in your lifetime.

The day will include a variety of activities designed to give students an inside look at ACES and the chance to ask questions and learn about different areas of the college and university. Some of these activities include:
– Interactive, hands-on Experiences hosted by our academic departments
– Numerous interactive booths hosted by our student organizations
– Tours of the ACES Quad
– A resource fair that will include representatives available to answer questions about Study Abroad, Housing, Greek Life, Student Support, Scholarships, and more!
