It is hard to narrow down to my most meaningful experience in ACES, but if I had to choose, it would be the individuals I have met.

Undergraduate Student

“When you are able to show up to an interview or event and say that you are from the University of Illinois, people know the school and the standards that come with being a student there,” Josh Donoho says. “The U of I name alone gives you credibility and a platform to stand on before you even say anything else.”

Josh, an agricultural and consumer economics major, loves that he is a student at U of I. The university has exposed him to a multitude of experiences—working with professors who are experts in their fields, networking with high-caliber peers, and much more.

“Going back to freshman year, I had no idea what I was getting myself into,” Josh says. “From the people I would meet to the roles and responsibilities I would take on to the jobs and internships I would have, ACES has provided me with so much.”

ACES has also provided Josh the opportunity to develop his skills through various leadership roles. He is president of the Agricultural and Consumer Economics Club, treasurer of Collegiate Farm Bureau, and a member of the Student Advancement Committee and Koinonia Christian Cooperative House.

“It is hard to narrow down to my most meaningful experience in ACES, but if I had to choose, it would be the individuals I have met,” Josh says. “My first year here I knew very few people, and over the past four years I have met people from all walks of life, with varying skills and goals. I now have professors whom I call my mentors and friends and peers who encourage each other, accept others for who they are, and push one another to achieve their dreams. ACES students and professors are the best.”
