[February 21, 2007]  URBANA -- A unique opportunity for prospective students to learn about life in the University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences will be available March 9-10 at ExplorACES 2007.

"This event is created specifically for high school and community college students, their parents, and friends," explained Jay Kelley, publicity chair for the student-organized event. "This is the third annual ExplorACES event. Through hands-on, interactive exhibits, students and professors from across the college will demonstrate what we have accomplished as we progress in our fields of study."

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 9 and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 10. The exhibits will be in several college buildings, and a tent north of the Edward R. Madigan Laboratory building at the intersection of Goodwin Avenue and Gregory Drive will serve as the entry point.
