The Global Health Immersion: Geneva, Switzerland Summer Intersession course has come to a close with our return home on Saturday May 30th. For many of the students this was their first time experience traveling outside of the United States.

Kent State students were featured on the U.S. News and World Report home page on July 29, 2014. These students traveled to Florence in June as part of our Summer Institute program.
