Are you a College of ACES alum with a young grandchild, niece, nephew or friend, who’s ready to get back to campus? If so, mark your calendars for July 9-10, 2015, and register now for the all-new ACES Family Academies.
ACES Family Academies is a new program from the ACES Alumni Association that will offer classes from each ACES academic unit, geared to children ages 8-12 years. The alumni and their young friend will attend classes together, experience dorm living for a night, and attend an all-American college tailgate. More than 40 hands-on educational classes are slated for the program, taught by College of ACES faculty and staff.
“Alumni can share their campus memories of living in a dorm, eating in the dining hall and going to class,” says ACES Alumni Director Tina Veal. “We’re really excited about the memories alumni and their grandchildren or young friends will be able to experience together – a chance to relive your college days and create new memories with your little Illini!”
Registration is now open at the official ACES Family Academies website, and will close by April 1, 2015. Registration numbers are limited; cost is $195 per person.
