“Attending the event was enriching for all ACES participants in terms of interactions with visitors interested in various academic programs existing within ACES. This was a great opportunity to showcase these programs and increase the visibility of ACES, and, ultimately increase ACES recruiting of new students,” said Soum Sanogo, professor of Fungal Plant Pathology in the Department of Entomology, Plant Pathology and Weed Sciences.

The NMSU ACES team that participated in this event included Sanogo, Sam Fernald, professor of Watershed Management and director of Water Resources Research Institute, two graduate students Joaquin Figueroa and Jorge Preciado, Mark Sheely, program coordinator of the Water Resource Research Institute, along with two ACES alumni Alonso Garcia and Jorge Fernandez from the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences.
