The Kent State Biological Anthropology faculty, graduate students, and alumni enjoyed getting together and catching up on Saturday, September 24th. In addition to celebrating 3 decades of Ph.D. recipients that have 100% job placement, we also celebrated the creation of The Department of Anthropology Endowed Fund for Graduate Student Research in Biological Anthropology. The donors for this fund are alumni and faculty of the biological anthropology program. All of this was made possible by one of the first graduates of the program, Bob Tague (Ph.D., 1986).
