President Barack Obama will deliver the commencement address this spring at The Ohio State University, the school announced Wednesday.
"This is a historic occasion for the university, the city of Columbus, and our graduates and their families," school President E. Gordon Gee said in a statement. “We are honored to have President Obama address our graduates at the university’s largest commencement ever. To be sure, this is a signal moment in the life of one of the most vibrant and vital universities in our nation."
The ceremony will be held May 5 at Ohio Stadium, the home venue of the school's football team that is commonly known as the "Horseshoe."
Obama will be the third sitting president to deliver the commencement address at Ohio State, following former President Gerald Ford in 1974 and former President George W. Bush in 2002.
