University Dining Services is excited to launch another new sustainability initiative this fall that will give students, staff and faculty the opportunity to help grow the produce that will be used in our campus dining operations.  As part of a partnership with CFAES, Dining has secured a space in the Howlett Greenhouse, which is located on west campus (http://www.osu.edu/map/building.php?building=297), where staff and students will work together to support this year’s crop of kale, lettuce and basil.

Are you a current or future graduate student with the skills and passion to become the next notable floriculture researcher or educator? If so, apply for the Paul Ecke Jr. M.S./Ph.D. Scholarship Program now through Feb. 1, 2015. Applications are available online.

Do you enjoy sharing your passion for Ohio State with others? Would you be willing to show high school students what it is like to be a Buckeye? The "Experience OSU for a Day" (EOFD) Program allows prospective students to get a feel for what college is really like. These students visit CFAES frequently, and we are in need of volunteers to show these students around campus when they come to visit.
