Give to ACES


From internships and study abroad trips to career preparation, leadership, and networking, ACES educates students beyond the classroom. Our graduates often say the best part of being an ACES student is experiencing life on a Big Ten campus while enjoying the benefits of a “small college” community. Our students make a difference on campus, in our state, and even in the world. In ACES, you will be surrounded by people who share your motivation to succeed.
