The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
Strickland Looks to Establish Statewide University System
Governor Strickland today asked Board of Regents Chancellor Eric Fingerhut to set up a collaboration among public colleges and universities in Ohio.
The University System of Ohio will include 13 public universities, 23 public two-year colleges, the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine and several adult career centers.
Strickland says he wants a 10-year plan developed to set benchmarks and timelines for higher education.
The governor says the new system will create what he calls a “new, Ohio birthright access for every Ohioan to an affordable, world class higher education.”
