What is Prime?
PRIME stands for Partners in Rural Innovative Models of Education. PRIME is the new name for a K‐16 innovative approach toward education in Geauga County initiative formerly initiated as a High School Consolidation effort led by Geauga Growth Partnership and Kent State University to create a new school on the campus of KSU Geauga for Berkshire (with an open invitation to Cardinal and Newbury school districts). Using PRIME as the identifying name for this project provides a sense of openness to all Geauga County residents.
eSports (electronic sports) is a name given to competitive, multiplayer computer gaming with an added spectator and entertainment component. Kent State University has a strong eSports program in the regional campus system and is bringing a competitive tournament to the Kent Campus this Spring.
Currently, most campuses are focusing on Overwatch and Hearthstone. However, new games will be added with enough student interest.
The campus is hiring student workers for the Spring 2018 semester.
