Kent State University is embarking on a campaign to motivate and assist students toward timely graduation. The university’s “Formula to Finish” initiative encourages students to register for and pass at least 15 credit hours per semester in order to graduate in two years to get their associate degree or four years for a bachelor’s degree, and save time and money in the process. Kent State’s Undergraduate Studies oversees the “Formula to Finish” initiative for all students at Kent State’s eight campuses.

Imagine a future where a consumer scans an item through a window display and purchases it without entering the store. Groceries are ordered at a kiosk for delivery within the hour. Human voice assistance is a standard part of the online shopping experience. Predictive analytics help retailers anticipate a shopper’s behavior. All are examples of how technology will dramatically alter the relationship between business and consumers in the coming years.

A team of Kent State University students and faculty has been awarded a $15,000 grant as part of a sustainability design competition funded by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Last year, a group of faculty representing three disciplines — biology, geology and architecture/environmental design — submitted an application for the EPA’s People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) grant competition. The P3 competition encourages college students to design innovative projects outside of the classroom in order to support the sustainability of the planet.
