Beginning in the academic year 2019-2020 and running through the fall of 2020, The Ohio State University and the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences will mark 150 years with a global celebration for all Buckeyes.
The university got its start in 1870 when the Ohio General Assembly established the Ohio Agricultural and Mechanical College, which evolved to become the institution we know and love, CFAES. Since its founding, Ohio State has epitomized the belief that by educating our citizenry, we ensure a better tomorrow for ourselves and for society. Throughout the sesquicentennial, we’ll be honoring and exploring our history, celebrating who we are today, and envisioning and embracing our future as a national flagship public research university.
As a cornerstone college, we want to make sure that our contributions are recognized. The BAT team has worked with the university to develop a set of marks that should be used on all print materials. There are also special marks to use when you’re creating sesquicentennial-related merchandise and apparel.

How does this impact me? Anyone producing print materials that have a shelf life of less than two years should add the CFAES 150 print mark in place of the regular CFAES logo.
I just printed my department’s brochures. Do I need to reprint them with the 150 mark? No. Buckeyes are all about sustainability. If your materials have already been printed, that quantity should be used up before reprinting. However, if you run out of your materials while the sesquicentennial is underway, or you are in the process of developing materials that will be printed soon, you should include the 150 mark.
Can I add my department or unit name to the 150 mark? No, the CFAES 150 mark should not be modified in any way. You can, and should, include your department or unit name in text using one of the approved brand identification methods. See the brand site for unit identification options.
