Porthouse Theatre, Kent State University’s outdoor, summer theatre located on the grounds of Blossom Music Center, will celebrate its 47th season with productions of “A Little Night Music,” “Violet” and “Hairspray.”

On Thursday, April 30, the School of Art recognized spring 2015 scholarship recipients at the Annual Student Awards Ceremony, held this year in the School of Art Gallery. Also acknowledged were prize winners in the Spring Foundations Show (on display in the gallery) and seniors and grad students graduating in spring or summer 2015.

The Kent State University Mass Notification System will undergo campuswide testing on Wednesday, May 13, between 6 and 6:30 p.m.

The testing is required due to updates to the system that will expedite the process of alerting campus to threats and improve the overall ease of use. Select office phones marked with a red sticker that reads “MNS” will now display a written message in addition to the recording that plays on campus. Additionally, the changes will simplify the process for dispatchers when alerting the campus community.
