Tina Rohr Howard ('84 Fashion Merchandising) of Mahomet, Ill., wrote recently in this giving season to share her reasons for spelling O-H-I-O during a trip overseas and why she is a loyal EHE donor

During our trip to Budapest, Hungary, my sister Tracy Rohr South ('81 Psychology) and husband Phillip Howard ('83 Finance) and I visited the historic Castle Hill area.

As Ohio State graduates, we were looking for that perfect spot to do our O-H-I-O picture.  When we saw the guard we thought that would make a great “I”.  So I asked him if he would mind if we used him. He didn’t answer, probably because he was a fan of “That Team up North”!

I graduated from the School of Home Economic in 1984 with a degree in Fashion Merchandising.

Since then, I have always tried to give back something to my college.

Being a fundraiser myself, I know the importance of giving back. Even if it is only a small amount, every gift makes a difference.

I give to the Human Ecology Alumni Scholarship Fund because I know how it will make a difference in the lives of the EHE students.

To support scholarship and other educational opportunities for human ecology students at The Ohio State University, give to the Human Ecology Alumni Scholarship Fund.

Interested in discussing multiple ways that you can support of the goals of human ecology students? Please contact Andrea Bowlin, chief advancement officer, at or 614-292-6516.
