At the start of the 2016 academic year, Kent State University becomes the first university in the country to feature an entirely gluten-free dining hall on campus. Kent State restructured Prentice Café after administrators noticed that the number of students arriving on campus with gluten intolerance was rising each year. The new dining facility will meet the ever-increasing demand for gluten-free foods.
In this digital age, with phones at our finger tips, you would think that access to constant communication would make us feel closer to one another. But a new study by researchers at Kent State University shows that may not be the case. In fact, cell phone use might actually lead to feeling less socially connected, depending on your gender or cell phone habits.
The Stress-Free Zone returns to the Kent State University Library on Monday, May 9, and Tuesday, May 10, from 3 - 5 p.m. to give students a break from studying for finals. The much-loved Dogs on Campus Pet Therapy Program® will be back once again, and snacks and beverages will be provided.
Karen Hillman, director of marketing, communications and public relations for University Libraries, said the Stress-Free Zone is one of the most popular events for students.
Kent State University officially registered 402 student organizations on campus this spring semester, a record-breaking number for the university, according to the Center for Student Involvement.
“Reaching this high number of student organizations on campus reflects the kind of students that are enrolling at Kent State: an engaged student who is ready for new opportunities,” said Katie Goldring, assistant director of the Center for Student Involvement at Kent State.
