Purdue Agricultural Centers Experience (PACE) Program
Alyssa Hilligoss, is one of the first students to be a part of the PACE program. PACE (Purdue Agricultural Centers Experience) is designed to expose undergraduate students who have little or no farm experience to applied research at one of the eight Purdue Agricultural Centers around the state of Indiana. PACE is sponsored by the Office of Academic Programs and Agricultural Research at Purdue in the College of Agriculture. Alyssa worked with Dr. Roberto Lopez, Associate Professor of Horticulture. Alyssa’s project focused on energy-efficient high tunnel bedding plant and cut flower production.
