Ag Open House April 5

Illinois Valley Community College will host its Agriculture Spring Open House for all prospective students and parents from 8:45 to noon Friday, April 5 in Rooms CTC124-125.

Guests will interact with current students and faculty, hear an overview on the revitalized program, tour campus and participate in an activity in the ag lab. Enrollment, financial aid and scholarship information will be provided.

In two years, the program led by instructor Willard Mott has grown to over 25 students taking at least one ag course, 10 new classes, two new ag degrees and five part-time instructors.

Mott said, “Career opportunities in agriculture are wide-ranging; it’s a great time to get in on our rapidly growing program.”   

Students are asked to preregister online by March 29 at ivcc.edu/agriculture or by contacting Mott at (815) 224-0413 or willard_mott@ivcc.edu.
