It seems everywhere we look, Kent State University is marking another milestone.
Fifty years ago, the Kent Campus was reflecting its times. A forward-thinking partnership with The Cleveland Orchestra and their summer home at Blossom Music Center, which began in 1968, echoed a growing emphasis in the culture on the visual and performing arts.
The protracted war in Vietnam and growing civil rights movements in the late 60s prompted students to protest war and racism and promote peace and equality. At Kent State, the activism of Black United Students, founded in 1968, helped bring about new and needed programs.
With all this looking back, the university is also looking forward. It is putting in place plans to transform the Kent Campus and surrounding community and to provide more programs that will help students succeed. For one thing hasn’t changed—the power of education to transform lives.
On a lighter note, many of you enjoyed our hidden squirrel contest, so we are holding it again. (See our feedback page for the previous winner and squirrel locations.) Just like in the winter issue, we’ve hidden a small image of a black squirrel in three places in the print issue. Those who find it qualify for a drawing to win a prize.
If you find it, send us an email at email@example.com, listing the three page numbers and places it appears, plus your name and mailing address. For rules and eligibility requirements see www.kent.edu/magazine/rules. Good luck!
