In the spirit of institutional cooperation, the Big Ten schools with agricultural sciences and natural resources 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 tenth year, the reception has been a great success with alumni and friends networking across institutions and enjoying one another’s company. Additionally this is an opportunity to learn how our colleges are working cooperatively on behalf of land-grant institutions.

Prior to the Big Ten event, the College of ACES Alumni Association will also host a reception to meet with Dean Kim Kidwell for a College of ACES update and an opportunity to network in a smaller setting.
