As you have heard from many of my fellow bloggers, ACE is a wonderful major. The opportunities seem endless and getting an Agricultural & Consumer Economics degree at the University of Illinois will set you apart and put you on a path towards success.

udapest was an amazing city that I wasn't even expecting to visit. It also worked out really well because a couple fellow phins are studying there this semester (friends from high school, Go Dolphins!). German class is getting more difficult but I feel like I'm learning more words everyday.

Last year, I was fortunate enough enroll in a class that compared agricultural practices and policies in the Midwest and the West Coast. The class, taught by Dr. Scholl and Jessa Barnard, was capped off with a trip to California over spring break that enabled us to experience agriculture there first-hand.

When I came on a campus visit my senior year of high school, I was introduced to the opportunity of study abroad by an advisor. I was hesitant because I did not want to miss out on anything on campus. That problem is one that many students encounter, so they delete the thought of studying abroad from their head. I was proved wrong when I discovered all of the different options that the College of ACES had to go abroad without missing a full semester here on campus.

Some of these opportunities are once in a lifetime experiences! For example, last semester, United States Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, came to campus and spoke about international food security.
