The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) Wooster campus is comprised of 4,200-acres in Wooster, Ohio and includes well-equipped laboratories, computing facilities, a comprehensive library, outstanding molecular imaging and sequencing facilities, classrooms, rearing facilities, glasshouses and growth chambers, and extensive field plots. Additional field plots are available at ten other locations throughout Ohio. Excellent opportunities exist for interaction with related agricultural research programs. Subsidized housing for single and married graduate students is available on the Wooster campus on a first-come, first-served basis. The CFAES Wooster campus includes representatives from the Departments of Animal Science, Entomology, Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering, Horticulture and Crop Science, Plant Pathology, the School of Environment and Natural Resources, and the Center for Food Animal Health. The campus is also the home of the two-year associate degree-granting program, the Agricultural Technical Institute (ATI). As one of a handful of two-year agriculture programs in the nation and consistently ranked near the top, ATI offers a competitive advantage to CFAES.
