Explaining Cicadas with Provost Bruce McPheron
The Ohio State University Alumni Association, in partnership with the Alumni Club of Washington D.C., proudly presents: They’re Back! Explaining Cicadas with Provost Bruce McPheron
For the first time in 17 years, Brood X cicadas have returned and they are everywhere! We are thrilled to invite all alumni to this special virtual engagement featuring Dr. Bruce McPheron, Executive Vice President and Provost for The Ohio State University. Given his background in entomology, or the study of insects, Dr. McPheron will guide guests through a conversation about the cicadas, their significance, and his experience as both a “Buckeye and bug guy.” There will be a moderated Q&A session following Dr. McPheron’s remarks.
Date: Thursday, June 24, 2021
Time: 6–6:45 p.m. EDT
