Take Note

It’s a new year, and there are many new beginnings at Kent State University. Our new Integrated Sciences Building, which opened in the fall on the Kent Campus, provides a wonderful space for students to explore the sciences and collaborate together to meet the world’s challenges.  

Our viticulture and enology program at Kent State Ashtabula announced a new partnership with a local winery that gives students hands-on experience, including the production and bottling of a new Kent State Ashtabula wine label.  

Kent State experts from a variety of disciplines are researching new topics of interest to anyone who wants to make the most of their golden years—and they have some advice to share with you.

Speaking of optimal aging, 96-year-old Bea McPherson, BS ’43, could surely be a poster child for a life well-lived.

To celebrate our new partnership with Laurello Vineyards and the launch of the Kent State Ashtabula wine label, we’ve hidden a small image of a black squirrel on three pages of our print magazine. Those who find it qualify for a drawing to win a prize. See the table of contents in your print edition for an example of what it looks like!

If you find it, send us an email at, listing the three page numbers and places it appears, plus your name and mailing address. The winner of the random drawing will receive a gift card for Laurello Vineyards. For rules and eligibility requirements see Cheers!
