Fashion Faculty Help Return Garments to Students

The School of Fashion would like to recognize and thank the faculty who worked tirelessly to make sure students' garments were returned safely back to their possession.

Assistant professor Chanjuan Chan, professor Linda Ohrn-McDaniel, associate professor Noël Palomo-Lovinski, assistant professor Krissi Riewi, worked for countless hours on Monday, March 16, to safely prepare and package the students' garments and ship them back to the their homes. 

As of March 16, the university announced remote instruction will be extended through the remainder of the semester following Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s proactive approach to keeping the state safe during the ongoing spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). On March 12, Gov. DeWine banned all indoor and outdoor events with more than 100 attendees and provided the estimate that the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Ohio will likely peak between late April and mid-May. 

To slow transmission of the virus and consistent with recommendations from state health authorities to limit large gatherings and practice social distancing, Kent State is taking the following preventative and proactive actions:

  • March 10-15: Face-to-face classes canceled.
  • March 16-20: Classes will be held via remote instruction.
  • March 23-29: Spring break will occur as scheduled.
  • March 30-End of Spring Semester: Classes will be held via remote instruction.
