Student Success at Kent State Yields Big Regional Benefits

Kent State University’s efforts to help students succeed and graduate resulted in a big payoff for Northeast Ohio. The university accounted for the largest increase in the number of new graduates among colleges and universities in the Akron Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) of Summit and Portage Counties, Ohio, contributing largely to the region’s win of a $1 million prize from CEOs for Cities’ Talent Dividend Prize national competition.

Kent State Students Experience Elizabethan-Era Shakespeare Performances

Students engage in discussion during a tour at the American Shakespeare Center.

Honors College students took a trip back in time to the Renaissance era to experience the works of William Shakespeare in a similar manner a playgoer during the Elizabethan era would have enjoyed.

Students enrolled in an Honors course called “Shakespeare in Performance” traveled to the American Shakespeare Center in Staunton, Virginia from Oct. 17 to Oct. 19 where they received the opportunity to expand their learning about Shakespeare plays and performances outside of the classroom.
