Kent State University’s Wick Poetry Center will host poet Rita Dove as part of the Fourth Annual U.S. Poet Laureate Reading. The event is part of the 2014-2015 reading series and will take place on Thursday, April 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Kent Student Center Kiva. The event is free and open to the public.

The series will feature monthly discussions that will showcase many various research areas conducted by faculty at Kent State. Suzy D’Enbeau, Ph.D., assistant professor in the School of Communication Studies, will introduce the series.

Kent State University chemistry senior Caitlin Crosier combined creativity and science for her yearlong project on circadian rhythms and will present those findings at the university’s Undergraduate Research Symposium on March 11.

“The main goal of my research is to validate this method as a way to look at the circadian rhythm structure of an entire population because most current human circadian research is conducted on very small populations and controlled environments,” Crosier said.
