Since the time of the early Buddhist kings, Tibetan monks have practiced analytic meditation – where they memorize a Buddhist text and then attempt to deepen their understanding of this material by joining in debate pits led by a senior monk, known as the challenger.
When a professor says no one has more fun teaching than he does – and the students cite the enthusiasm and passion for the material he teaches – that combination leads to award-winning honors.  
Kent State University researchers travel to India to study the neuroscience behind the ancient practice of analytic mediation. They hope to apply the findings to students in the west.
Christopher Bell is the 2015 recipient of the College Reading and Learning Association’s (CRLA) Outstanding Tutor Award — the first-ever recipient from an Ohio college or university. 
The talents of 18 Kent State University students were on display at Kent Student Center Programming’s 12th annual Rock the Runway fashion show, which took place March 5. Fashion was king on a night that featured the sights and sounds of this year’s theme, The Jacksons.
