Who in the world is the CFAES Alumni Society Board?

The CFAES 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. It 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.
