Buckeye Voices: A Titan Pays Forward

Eddie George

Drawing on experiences from a successful career in professional football and business, Buckeye great Eddie George is giving back and preparing the next generation of sports leaders — as a teacher. “Looking back, I guess I was one of those students who struggled to stay awake in class,” George shared. “So now, having been on the other side of the classroom, I applaud and commend the professors at Ohio State because it’s a hard job to do.” Read more.

SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY
Courtesy Copy of the Buckeye Book Community 2015 Selection

The Good Food Revolution
by Will Allen
15 copies available

Will AllenFreshman Buckeyes take part in the First Year Experience (FYE), a program designed to help them adjust to campus life and connect with the university. Part of this exciting experience is joining more than 7,000 other students in the Buckeye Book Community (BBC) for a chance to spark conversations around a book that connects the whole first-year class.

Join students in reading the 2015 BBC book: The Good Food Revolution by Will Allen. A former professional basketball player and business executive, Allen turned his love of food into a career as a preeminent urban farmer on his two-acre plot outside Milwaukee. Allen now educates on the power of local food systems and the ability to create jobs and improve public health.

The book aligns with President Michael V. Drake's plans for Ohio State, including topics related to community engagement, as well as Ohio State’s Discovery Themes, which include focus areas in foods for health and food security.

Secure your courtesy copy of The Good Food Revolution — a limited supply available — by calling 614-292-9550. You also are invited to "An Evening with Will Allen" at Mershon Auditorium on September 21, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. Please register here for the event.
