I believe that experiential learning is a crucial part of a well-rounded education, and I am extremely interested in international agriculture opportunities.

Undergraduate Student

Jenna Davis, a sophomore in the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Economics (ACE), chose ACE so she could combine her passion for agriculture with aspirations to work in business. 

Through the College of ACES, she has studied abroad in Antigua, Guatemala. Jenna also participated in the ACE 291 Experiential Learning tour to Washington, DC, and studied abroad in Morocco over semester break. This spring she is participating in her department’s International Business Immersion Program, which focuses this semester on New Zealand and culminates with traveling there in May. 

“I believe that experiential learning is a crucial part of a well-rounded education, and I am extremely interested in international agriculture opportunities,” Jenna says.

She is also an ACE Ambassador, a JBT [scholarship fund] Ambassador, an active member of ACE Club, and a member of 4-H House cooperative sorority. 

“I love serving as an ambassador for ACE and JBT because I am passionate about both, and I enjoy the student outreach,” Jenna says. “You really get to make a mark on prospective students and help them, which is a great experience.” 

Jenna says U of I is unique because of the prestigious academics and wide-ranging opportunities it offers. 

“I think what sets U of I apart from other institutions is the great environment and academic programs. U of I has an outstanding College of ACES, and a wide array of study abroad opportunities,” Jenna says. “Many people seem to overlook extracurricular activities and focus only on academics. But other experiences are very important to becoming a well-rounded individual.”
