Freshman Lexi Heger was selected to join the CFAES Ambassador team on February 27, 2017. Lexi is a Sustainable Plant Systems major with a specialization in Horticulture. The CFAES Ambassadors are the face of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. They interact with prospective students, families, donors, and alumni. Ambassadors also serve as liaisons to the Ohio State student body to help increase awareness about our college. They are encouraged to become involved in industry relating to their area of study. To become an Ambassador, students go through a competitive interview process. Lexi is excited to join the team, saying, "I come from a different background than a lot of the other students in the department. I didn’t grow up on a farm, so being an ambassador is a chance to show that anyone with an interest in plants can find a home here at Ohio State." Lexi is one of only two freshman selected to join the Ambassador team this year.
