Who in the world is the CFAES Alumni Society Board?

The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences Alumni Society Board represents the voice of all alumni of the college. The board serves as a resource for all relations between college alumni and The Ohio State University Alumni Association and has representatives from every academic department, from every region of Ohio and out of state, and from the last three graduating classes. The group meets quarterly and sponsors events throughout the year.
