I joined Financial Planning Club at the beginning of this year so I could interact with other students who were also in financial planning. In Financial Planning Club, they offer many opportunities for growth and development within the financial planning industry as well as chances to talk with experienced professionals.

Two years ago when I was applying for college, I applied for lots of different majors and programs in different colleges. When it get to the day making the final decision, I picked “Agricultural Consumer Economics” in University of Illinois. I am thankful to the decision I made because ACE fits me really well and give me the chances to learn something that I really like.

One thing that I was able to fully utilize was the experiential learning opportunities here in ACE. I was very fortunate to travel to Europe for the International Business Immersion Program, Brazil for the National Agri-Marketing Association, as well as California for ACE 199: Food, Farm, and Agricultural Policy.

Being in ACE has taken me international two times in the past year. I was first encouraged by my advisor, Ann Finnegan, to travel internationally with the discovery course, ACES 298, after she realized my passion for traveling. ACES 298 is an 8 week course available to first semester freshman, which travels to the Dominican Republic for 10 days over winter break!

As a student who has studied in ACES for almost 4 years, I highly recommend any new students or potential students to study in our college. In our college, we have so many options can choose. If you feel interested in business, you can study agr-finance or financial planning, and even study agr-accounting like me. Or you can study biological engineering if you want!

This year we were lucky enough to go to Brazil for 2 weeks. We flew into Sao Paulo where we visited agricultural companies for the first five days. After that we went to a resort on the Pantanal, which are the wetlands in Brazil.

In addition the College of ACES is very generous with scholarships for study abroad and there is plenty of funding available! I would definitely recommend that you join this College and take advantage of the study abroad opportunities that ACE provides.

When I was first admitted into the ACE Department I had many concerns and I wasn’t entirely sure which concentration to purse. After I sat down with my advisor, I had a much better understanding of what concentration was right for me and which classes I would need to take to pursue this concentration.
