Southern Local 8th Graders Visited KSU at Salem

Southern Local eighth graders recently visited Kent State's Salem campus for a taste of college life. The students selected courses in advance and were handed course schedules upon arrival. After a brief tour of the campus, they attended classes in business, psychology, radiology and literature with Kent State professors. The day ended with an orientation to our horticulture program and some question and answer time with advising staff.

Southern Local requested this program as part of its larger effort to raise students' awareness of college and career opportunities in our community.
