U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown will deliver the commencement address at The Ohio State University’s gradation on December 15.
Approximately 3,600 students will receive degrees during the ceremony at the Schottenstein Center.
"I am pleased to welcome U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown to speak at our university's autumn commencement ceremony," said President Michael V. Drake. "An engaged leader and proud Ohio State alumnus, Senator Brown lends his broad expertise to some of our nation's most significant policy discussions. His passion for public service will inspire our graduates as they consider their own impact as global citizens."
In 1975, Brown became the youngest person ever elected to the Ohio House of Representatives at 22.
Brown was elected to Congress in 1992 and was re-elected six times. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006 and has been re-elected twice.
