Drake, MD and Executive Vice President and Provost Bruce McPheron recognized students, staff and faculty members from The Ohio State University who are recent Fulbright and Fulbright-Hays recipients and finalists, as well as visiting Fulbright students and scholars from around the globe, during a reception at the Faculty Club.

President Drake congratulated the honorees on their accomplishments and encouraged them to use this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a better future for the world.
