CFAES Connect : July 2017

  1. Ohio Stadium

    The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences invites you to reconnect with alumni and friends by attending the CFAES Homecoming Weekend October 6–7.

  2. It’s tomato season right now, and those delicious fruits may be doing more than just making your taste buds happy. Ohio State researchers discovered that daily tomato consumption reduced by half the rate of non-melanoma skin cancers in mice. The study's senior author is Tatiana Oberyszyn, professor of pathology and member of Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center. Jessica Cooperstone, who co-authored the study, is a research scientist in the Department of Food Science and Technology (FST) in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.

  5. Ohio wins Raise Your Hand competition

    Ohio 4-H announced its award of $20,000 for participation in Raise Your Hand, a national 4-H initiative asking the millions of 4‑H alumni across the nation, including 4-H alumni in Ohio, to ‘Raise Your Hand’ and pay it forward in support of providing the hands-on learning that empowers kids across America.

    4-H, the largest youth development program in the nation, called on alumni to raise their hands to help bring 4-H to 10 million youth by 2025. Currently 4-H empowers nearly six million young people in every county across America, including 183,000 4-H’ers in Ohio.
