WASHINGTON —

President Barack Obama is returning to Ohio to give his first commencement address of 2013 at Ohio State University in Columbus.

Ohio was at the center of last year's presidential election, and Obama's victory there was critical to winning enough electoral votes to secure a second term. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden traveled frequently to the Buckeye State throughout the campaign.

Ohio State says more than 10,000 students will receive diplomas Sunday, including 130 veterans.

Obama will give two other commencement speeches this season at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., and all-male Morehouse College in Atlanta. Both ceremonies are later in May.

Obama is fresh off a three-day trip to Mexico and Costa Rica that ended on Saturday.
