Have you ever seen this and wondered what it is? 😸

The Ohio University seal includes a sheaf of wheat representing Ohio’s agricultural heritage and a bundle of seventeen arrows that represent Ohio as the seventeenth state to join the Union.

Hello friends and RAs, for my digital marketing class we have created a blog. If you would click the call-to-action at the bottom of the blog (Download the free E-book) and fill out the form, (it won't sign you up for emails, just one single email from me) it would do wonders for not only me, but also my grade. And who knows, maybe you'll want to try out one of the dorm friendly recipes in the e-book! Thank you so much in advance.
