Hello all, my name is Brianna Gregg and I am here to help incoming transfer students to the College of ACES. Originally, I am from a small town in north-central Illinois. I transferred from Kankakee Community College to the College of ACES, Agribusiness, Markets and Management in 2007, graduating with my bachelor's degree in 2009. From graduation, I became an Admissions Counselor for Illinois while completing my master's degree. Officially I moved back to ACES (what I like to call home) in 2013. I love cookies, euchre, meeting new people and puzzles (not in any particular order).
Transferring is an exciting experience, but not without its challenges. So if you have questions along the way, please do not hesitate to ask! I am happy to help!
