Kent State University hosted a grand opening for the Aeronautics and Technology Building on Friday, April 24.

The event celebrated the opening of the 55,000-square-foot building and the move of the College of Applied Engineering, Sustainability and Technology from Van Deusen Hall to the Science Corridor. The new building joins other colleges and buildings, such as Henderson Hall, the Mathematics and Computer Science Building and the Liquid Crystal Materials Science Building. Construction on the building began in summer 2013.

Fulfilling the commitment Kent State University President Lester A. Lefton made to students, the university has began initial construction activities on the Student Green project in the Kent Student Center area, located at the heart of the campus. The new Student Green will extend from the recently renovated Risman Plaza to the lawn area south, creating a contiguous green space from the current student center plaza to Summit Street.

Work on the Student Green in front of the library and Kent Student Center is currently underway. Due to this construction, the visitor lot in front of Risman Plaza is closed through Aug. 19.

Kent State University is building for the future with a number of significant improvements to its campus.

Six representatives of the Kent Central Gateway project, which includes the City of Kent, the Portage Area Regional Transit (PARTA) and Kent State University, visited Washington, D.C., on April 16 and 17 and met with Ohio members of Congress and officials at the Federal Transit Administration. The goals of the Kent delegation’s visit were to thank those in Washington who had supported the efforts to secure funding for the Kent Central Gateway multimodal facility as well as to update officials on the progress of the downtown Kent’s economic development project
