Students involved with the Rural Scholars Program through the Kent State Columbiana County Campuses spent part of their summer breaks in educational workshops that kept their minds and bodies working.
Through three week-long workshops based on the Kent State Salem Campus, the students and their college mentors used hands-on activities to learn lessons in math, science, business, technology, geography and social studies. The students traveled throughout Columbiana County, and into Mahoning County, for many of their lessons.
Kent State University at Salem recently received a bobcat – but not the four-legged kind. Rather, Leppo Rents/Bobcat of Akron donated a Bobcat mini excavator to the campus to be used by horticulture students and faculty.
The Bobcat is typically used for general excavation and site preparation projects. Dale Leppo, chairman of Leppo Rents/Bobcat of Akron, made the donation possible and Butch Bisirri, sales specialist, delivered the machinery to the campus.
As part of the recently announced partnership with Barnes & Noble College, the Kent State University at Salem and Kent State University at East Liverpool Bookstores will be closed from June 18 – July 5 for the transition. The bookstore will re-open on July 6.

To most students, spring break means just that: a break from classes, lessons and campus. For a group of Kent State University nursing students, however, their most recent spring break was an intense learning experience that took them to remote villages in Haiti for a medical mission trip. Among those who made the trip were Dr. Mary Lou Ferranto, director of the BSN program at Kent State Salem, and two of her students: Sheila Daniels and Mathew Duck.
