Fallfest Tailgate

It’s that time of year again when our alumni head back to campus to celebrate Ohio State’s Homecoming activities. CFAES is once again hosting our Fallfest Tailgate on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018, and would like to invite faculty and staff to attend this annual event.

Tickets are $35 per guest and can be purchased with a personal credit card by phoning the Alumni Association Customer Service Center at 614-292-2281.  They are open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Registration ends Wednesday, Sept. 26. We are sold out of game tickets, but still have room at the tailgate!

Note – We are moving back to the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center for this year’s event.  We hope to see you at the tailgate!  Direct any questions to CFAES-events@osu.edu.

Books and Brews: CFAES Alumni Society Scholarship Fundraiser

The more the merrier, so bring along other alums from our college you see on the fair grounds.

Tick Safety Webinar

Lyme disease? Meat allergy? You’ve likely heard that the tick population is high this year and that you need to be vigilant to avoid tick-borne disease.  But how exactly do you do so?

Dr. Nicky Gallagher will present on ticks via a webinar for fellow CFAES alumni and friends on Thursday, Aug. 9 from 7 – 7:30 p.m. Dr. Gallagher is an entomologist working for Syngenta. She also serves on the CFAES Alumni Society Board.

The webinar is free, but requires pre-registration. Email CFAESAlumni@osu.edu to reserve your space to learn about tick safety and ask your questions directly to an expert.
