WASHINGTON -- The White House says President Barack Obama is delivering the commencement address at Ohio State University on May 5.

The university says it will be Obama's fifth visit to the campus in little more than a year.

Last May, Obama kicked off his successful drive for re-election with a rally at the university.

He also won the political battleground state in the 2008 and 2012 elections.

Obama's other commencement speeches this season are scheduled for all-male Morehouse College in Atlanta on May 19, and at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., on May 24.
