In the above photo, the College of Business Student Ambassadors are standing in front of Ohio University's Class Gateway. The thoughts of university co-founder Manasseh Cutler, as they were incorporated into the articles of the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, are inscribed on the stone between the two entrances (Religion morality and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged). While not all COB Student Ambassadors are included, those pictured are: (Back Row, L-R) Morgan Parker, Alexis Lowe, Alex Hankins, Sierra Smith, Ryan Sexton, Sara Bankovich, Brody Gilliand; (Front Row, L-R) KJ Russell, Brandon DeLorenzo, Bella Miller, Lauren Wisner, and Jenn Vance.
