CCI Global

by Kiana Duncan

When difficult, tragic or controversial news breaks in America, how does it feel to be a student abroad -- especially when new peers look to you to explain your country? CCI senior Kiana Duncan, now finishing her semester abroad at Anglo-American University in Prague, offers her perspective.

This semester, another mass shooting in Texas occurred, and was followed by smaller, horrible gun attacks around the United States.

Panelists spoke to a packed house of approximately 80 people at the "Redefining 'Refugee': Stories from a Global Crisis" discussion held Nov. 17. 

Communication Studies majors Eunice Reyes, junior, and Juleanna Smith, senior, will host a panel discussion titled, “Redefining 'Refugee': Stories from a Global Crisis” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15 in Rm.

Nearly 150 attendees packed into Rm. 226 in Taylor Hall to hear international journalist Malia Politzer talk about her reporting of the refugee crisis in Niger, Italy, Germany and Turkey.

Four School of Communication Studies (COMM) graduate students were named first place award winners at Kent State University’s 32nd Graduate Research Symposium April 21, 2017.

Master’s students Daniel Socha, Kelsey Husnick and Kelsey Phillips and doctoral student William Kelvin shared their research in an oral presentation or as a poster. Each of the students plan to present or publish their research outside of Kent State in the future.
