Despite the autumn 2020 semester not being what students expected, CFAES had 260 students graduate. These individuals join a population of more than 43,000 living College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences alumni worldwide, representing every department within the college and at CFAES Wooster. This group of new alumni earned a collective 264 degrees at the end of the semester.
A virtual commencement ceremony took place on Sunday, Dec. 13. In her commencement remarks, Ohio State President Kristina M. Johnson mentioned two CFAES graduates, Grace Daniels and Asaad Ahmad. Grace graduated with an associate of science degree in community leadership from CFAES Wooster and a bachelor of science in agriculture degree in community leadership from the Department of Agricultural Communication, Education, and Leadership. Grace represents an increasing population of neurodiverse Ohio State graduates. Asaad graduated with a bachelor of science in construction systems management. Asaad wanted to continue his career after moving to the United States. While he was a student, he worked full time to support his family and maintained a 4.0 GPA. Grace and Asaad are excellent demonstrations of Buckeye passion, dedication, and resilience.
