Considered the highest recognition Ohio FFA can award an aspiring young farmer, the Future Farmers of America (FFA)’s annual star awards recognize student achievement in both career and leadership development. Students compete in four categories: Agricultural Placement, Agribusiness, Agriscience, and Farming and are evaluated based on their Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAEs).
AEDE's Landon Lindemer, Grace Dannemiller and Ryan Goddard have earned CFAES' Outstanding Senior Awards last night during the College’s 2018 Outstanding Senior Award Recognition Dinner Program at the OSU Fawcett Center.
As the College’s premier undergraduate award, this award recognizes students who:
Listening to senior Haylee Zwick energetically recount her recent trip to the USDA’s Agricultural Outlook Forum, you wouldn’t guess that since her return, she’s been working around the clock to get caught up on class work. Zwick spent four days in D.C. attending sessions at the forum, networking with students, stakeholders, and the movers and shakers of the ag world.
Recent AEDE graduate Sierra Jepsen credits the support and encouragement she received from the department as crucial to her paving the way to her dream job. She will be joining the University of Wyoming as Lecturer, Branded Meats Coordinator and Meat Judging Coach.
There is more value to corn than just its kernel’s. That is the winning idea created by the OSU National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) Marketing Team which include members Grace Dannemiller, Andrea Kackley, Zach Corcoran, Megan Phillaier, Laura Davis, Drew Van Winkle, Garrett Leeds, Jenna Phelps, and advisor Scott Holley. They just placed 6th out of 36 at the NAMA Student Competition in Dallas, Texas.
Before the ceremonial mortarboard toss at graduation, the end of spring term brings a whirlwind of activity including celebrations, award ceremonies and banquets. According to graduating senior Craig Berning, his being named a CFAES Outstanding Senior, a Denman Forum winner and an Ohio State Board of Trustees Student Recognition Award recipient has led him to reflect on his time at OSU and his unique accomplishments. Berning spent a summer interning in Washington D.C.
On a recent spring afternoon, five AEDE 4106 Business Strategy students sat in a conference room hashing out how to reduce the amount of time it would take to get their products to market. They consulted an industry conditions report, checked their balance sheets, production schedules and marketing budget. These students aren’t running a real business but are CEOs, COOs and CFOs of a virtual company through the Capsim Capstone Business Strategy Simulation.
The odds of landing a job before graduation were in Spring 2017 graduate Jake Vuillemin's favor. This past November, he found himself in the advantageous position of fielding three job offers six months BEFORE graduation. With the help of AEDE Lecturer Dr. Anna Parkman, Vuillemin was able to negotiate a pay scale that met his requirements for his dream job.
