President Obama will deliver the commencement address at Ohio State University this spring.

“This is a historic occasion for the university, the city of Columbus, and our graduates and their families,” said President E. Gordon Gee in a statement. “We are honored to have President Obama address our graduates at the university’s largest commencement ever." 

The president has visited Ohio State four times in the past 16 months. He gave a speech on energy independence there last March, kicked off his reelection campaign with a rally at the school in May, dropped by the student union in August and gave a speech there in October asking voters to go to the polls early.

Obama will also deliver the commencement address at Morehouse College in Atlanta, an all-male, historically black institution.
