Despite not having any residence dorms on campus, Kent State University at Stark is hosting 27 Chinese students this semester as part of its new emphasis on multiculturalism and globalization.

Gina Cirino completed her Master's degree at Kent State in 2015 with an emphasis on cultural anthropology. Read on to learn about what Gina is doing with her degree!

As Kent State University welcomes new and returning students, the Opening of School Master Schedule of University Services is a useful tool for departments, parents and students alike. This schedule lists the days and hours various university service areas are open from the week before school starts through the first week of classes, Sunday, Aug. 21, through Friday, Sept. 2.

To our students affected by the schedule cancellation:

Over the weekend, employees from the Bursar’s, Financial Aid, and Registrar’s office will be working diligently to restore each affected student’s class registrations.  All class schedules will be restored by Tuesday, Aug. 16 at noon, and then registration will be re-opened for all students. For now, the registration system remains closed to ensure that your class schedule is accurately restored.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Feinberg on his election to the status of Honorary Fellow by the Association for Social Anthropology in Oceania!

His nomination appeared in the ASAO Newsletter (Issue 154) in April, 2016.
