“Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s scheduled address to Miami University-Ohio students is the only one representing any conservative view”
This is one reason that taxpayers should laugh when anyone suggests free college. Half of America isn’t even welcome on most campuses.

Among Top 100 Schools, Only One Republican To Give Commencement Speech
Only one of the so-called top 100 universities in the United States chose a Republican to speak at its commencement address, according to a report by the Young America’s Foundation.
The YAF survey noted that, although there were speakers from many different fields such as politics, business, entertainment, and media, there is a lack of political representation in all of the choices for commencement addresses.
Despite other elected officials such as “New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Sheila Oliver (New Jersey Institute of Technology), Colorado Governor Jared Polis (Colorado School of Mines), House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (University of Maryland), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute), and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (Northwestern University)” asked to speak at various universities, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s scheduled address to Miami University-Ohio students is the only one representing any conservative view or diversity in speaker politics.
Although Senior Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump had been invited to give an address at Wichita State University Tech, she was later dropped from their program, and the only member of the Trump administration to be invited to speak anywhere. This draws a strong contrast to the “dozens of commencement addresses delivered by members of the Obama administration, including 15 in 2015 and 11 in 2016” as seen in previous YAF speaker surveys.
