Congratulations to all Buckeyes who graduated this spring!

In light of current restrictions on large public gatherings, The Ohio State University hosted a historical virtual commencement ceremony on Sunday, May 3. Approximately 13,000 degrees and certificates were awarded to the class of 2020.

While President Michael V. Drake, Vice Provost Bruce McPheron and other university officials were at the stadium, speaker Tim Cook, Apple chief executive officer, joined virtually. Buckeyes around the country and the globe heard these speeches from home surrounded by family and close friends. In his speech, Cook encouraged graduates to “build a better future than the one you thought was certain."

Join us as we congratulate Brazilian Buckeyes who have finished their undergraduate, graduate and professional studies at Ohio State! The Brazil Gateway wishes you all the best and welcomes you to the alumni family. We are here with you!

Read below a few thoughts from Brazilian Buckeyes, who finished their program:

  • “Although it may not look so now, we will remember 2020 as one of the best years we lived.” — João Carvalho, MBA.
