Work and Life Skills Boot Camp Set for Sept. 24
Sept. 1, 2021
Registration for ACI’s Fall Work and Life Skills Boot Camp launches this week. Scheduled for Friday, Sept. 24, these virtual workshops on Zoom will offer sessions on modernized resume’ writing, investing “pocket change” in the stock market, micro-internships and career mentoring. A Q&A panel was added to the agenda which will allow student attendees to explore the minds of other young professionals and early career launchers from Citi.
Work and Life Skills Boot Camps are held semiannually, in fall and spring and are exclusively for students attending ACI member colleges and universities. While these sessions are open to all ACI students, there is an emphasis on first-generation, low-income and other underserved student populations to help fill information and networking gaps that other students may not experience.
Questions? Contact Constance Willoughby, ACI director, programs, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 312-263-2391, ext. 4.

President S. Georgia Nugent of ACI-member Illinois Wesleyan University, will introduce ACI and the morning’s program. Registration for this complimentary breakfast will begin in September.
ACI Launches New Logo, Instagram Page
Sept. 1, 2021
You may have noticed something new in our communications this summer and in this edition of ACI Reporter: our new logo. This is the first remake of our organization’s logo for at least a decade and perhaps longer.
The new design emphasizes the ACI acronym, familiar to most people who know our organization. We also kept the familiar orange color in the circle design, which we revised to include the state image of Illinois.
ACI’s new logo was designed by Walter Freeman, owner and creative director, ef Design Group, Chicago.

There has been a significant decrease in new Facebook profiles for Generation Z and beyond as teens and young adults flock to TikTok and other social sites, such as Instagram. ACI recently joined Instagram, a social media platform that connects users, called followers, to
businesses, celebrities and friends through photos and short videos. A member since early July, ACI intends to use this app as a way of increasing visibility among students, schools and supporters to help reinforce messaging about programming, events and other ACI news.
Currently, the content on the ACI page consists of short videos, called Reels, that captures the essence of some of our campuses during our recent site visits as well as general information about available financial assistance and programs. Be sure to follow our Instagram page @associatedcollegeofillinois as well as our other social media channels: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube.
