A little more than 73 years after enrolling at The Ohio State University, Ted Chandler received his Bachelor of Science degree Jan. 23 from the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES).

在他當年入學就讀俄亥俄州立大學73年多之後,泰德.錢德勒在1月23日從該校的食品、農業與環境科學學院,拿到他的理學士學位。

Sporting gray socks with scarlet block O’s, a graduation cap and gown, and a cane featuring Brutus Buckeye, Chandler moved his golden tassel from right to left during a ceremony in the college’s Agricultural Administration building.

腳上穿著有猩紅色塊狀字母O圖案的灰色襪子(譯註:猩紅與灰是俄州大的代表顏色)、頭戴學士帽、身披學士袍,還拿著一根上有俄州大校隊吉祥物布魯特斯.巴蓋圖案的柺杖,錢德勒在該學院農業行政大樓的一場典禮上,將他學士帽上的金穗從右撥到左。

A horticulture major, Chandler entered Ohio State in the fall of 1940. After participating in ROTC as a sophomore and junior, his studies were interrupted by World War II when he was stationed in Southeast Asia. After the war, Chandler returned to his studies at Ohio State for one quarter. He then returned to the family farm and pickle factory near Medina, Ohio.

主修園藝的錢德勒,1940年秋季進入俄州大;大二與大三時加入預備軍官訓練團後,學業便因二次大戰時派駐東南亞而中斷。錢德勒在戰後重返俄州大念了一個學季,然後回到俄亥俄州梅迪納附近的家族農場與醃黃瓜工廠。

When asked what advice he would give to incoming freshman, Chandler said, "Don’t look for the easiest way. You learn more from hard work."

在被問到要給將入校的新生什麼建議時,錢德勒說:「別去尋找最簡便的路。辛苦工作學得更多。」
