In the spirit of institutional cooperation, the Big Ten schools with agricultural programs are again gathering our alumni and friends in the Washington, D.C. area for a special event at the National Press Club. Now in its ninth year, the reception has been a great success with alumni and friends networking across institutions and enjoying one another’s company. We look forward to seeing everyone again (and some new faces)!

The College of ACES Alumni Association will also host a reception prior to the Big Ten event to meet with Dean Kim Kidwell for a College of ACES update and an opportunity to network.  We hope you will join us to visit with administration from the College of ACES.  

Following the ACES Alumni reception join the Big Ten Ag alumni event to enjoy the fellowship of alumni and friends from the colleges of agricultural sciences and natural resources representing the Big Ten. Reconnect with college deans, administrators, faculty and staff from your alma mater. Learn how our colleges are working cooperatively on behalf of land-grant institutions.

Cost is $25 per person and includes and open bar and a buffet of favorite savories. Register by Monday, February 25.
