Alpha Zeta Partners Spent Six Weeks in Brazil

Ten students – all members of Alpha Zeta Partners – from the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) spent their time in Brazil taking Portuguese and agriculture classes at Ohio State’s partner institution, Escola Superior de Agricultura in the University of São Paulo (ESALQ – USP) located in Piracicaba. Accompanied by Associate Professor Jeff King, PhD, the group was in Brazil from January 3 – February 9.

The purpose of the fraternity of Alpha Zeta is to bring together students interested in the continued advancement of agriculture and natural resources, and to foster and develop high standards of scholarship, character and leadership among its members.

While visiting the Brazil Gateway, the students learned more about Ohio State’s internationalization effort, the Brazil Gateway, student and faculty exchanges, and partnerships between Ohio State and Brazilian institutions.
