Buckeyes for life

More than 10,000 tassels were turned at Spring Commencement 2013. The second-largest graduating class in Ohio State history included 130 veterans, 117 student athletes, and thousands of standout students.

Ohio State's newest alumni heard from President Barack Obama, the third sitting president to give the Buckeye commencement address. "I'll ask for two things from the Class of 2013: to participate and to persevere," he told grads. "Your democracy does not function without your active participation."

Experience the sights and sounds of commencement. Tag yourself in our high-resolution panorama. Read President Gee's reflections on the day. Stay connected to your alma mater through The Ohio State University Alumni Association.
