Why Study at AAU?

Senior communication studies major Andrea Rinehart was recently named a PNC Student Athlete Achiever for her contributions to the Kent State University field hockey team.

According to Rinehart, the award recognizes student athletes who display well-rounded achievement through leadership in the classroom, community and competition.

“Getting this award is very exciting,” Rinehart said. “It is very challenging [balancing] sports and academics, but it makes me feel that all of my hard work on the field and in the classroom has paid off.”

Kent State University’s Center for Student Involvement recently received the Best Poster Award from the Consortium for Student Retention Data Exchange for its poster on student retention through the FLASHperks program.

The winning poster, designed by senior visual communications design major Nicholas Blanchard through the center’s Signum Design, details how the FLASHperks program works and how the program benefits Kent State students.

Madison Woodard led the effort of Delta Zeta’s annual Lip Sync competition on Sunday, Feb. 26. The event was a huge success, raising over $51,000 for the Delta Zeta Foundation.

Woodard is a junior communication studies major, concentrating in health communication with a minor in interpersonal communication.

Kent State students in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication (JMC) recently took their learning outside of the classroom and to set of the thriller movie, “The Bye Bye Man.” 

Five students and alumni from JMC and the College of Communication and Information - many of the members of Kent State Independent Films (KSUIF) - played various roles, from extra to production assistant. The movie, which premiered last month (January 2017) was filmed in Cleveland in November 2015.

In the ages of Ferdinand Magellan and Marco Polo, explorers set out to span distances unimaginable to the populous. Whether charting vast oceans or emerging landscape, they carried with them the prospect that, upon their return, the world as they knew it would change. The stories they would tell, the information they would relay and the places they would depict had the potential to expand the realm of possibility. In this spirit, space travel has redefined our contemporary idea of what is possible. Will people one day travel to and live on Mars?

Suzy D’Enbeau, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the School of Communication Studies (COMM), and 12 Kent State students will travel to Columbus Feb. 24 – 26 with the Office of Experiential Education and Civic Engagement (OEECE) to participate in the ‘Human Trafficking Educational Immersion’ program. COMM student Delaney Cordova is also attending.

Kyle Michael Miller, a 2009 graduate of Kent State University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication, decided late last year to take a leap of faith and quit his dream job at the TODAY Show to follow his passion for sharing uplifting stories.

So Miller packed up and moved back to Ohio to find and tell stories from across the country that spread a positive message. He calls this venture 'Hope Dealer.'
