The School of Communication Studies will host its fall Colloquium Series beginning Friday, Sept. 4. Each semester, the school hosts the series which consists of three to four lectures presented by faculty and graduate students from the school, the university and around the country.

The series provides an opportunity for faculty and graduate students to foster intellectual and collaborative discussions, and to stay informed about current research efforts. All faculty and graduate students are invited to attend at no cost.

Vincent Ripepi, a junior at Kent State University, will be traveling around the world on the prestigious Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) National Team for Olympic-style sparring.

The Hudson Hub Times reports that Ripepi was placed on the team after competing last month in the AAU National Championships in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

He will be competing in the 18-to-32 age bracket in the middleweight division.

On Tuesday, Sept. 1, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., the Kent Student Center Ballroom will turn into a fun-filled employee appreciation event!
