Hillary Clinton is coming back to Kent State University: not for a campaign rally like her appearance at the university’s Student Recreation and Wellness Center last week, but as the subject of a new special topics course offered by the Women’s Studies Program and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, both in the College of Arts and Sciences.
