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.
Sixteen students and three faculty members traveled south of the equator for two weeks in March to tell the story of the people, places and things in Curitiba, Brazil. The students were members of the College of Communication and Information's International Storytelling course.
Sixteen students will travel to Brazil with the School of Journalism and Mass Communication’s International Storytelling class from March 15 to March 31 to develop multimedia news stories about the country.
