Kent State University
As we can see, it is not an uncommon phenomenon for students to further their education abroad in this highly globalized world. Right now, I will introduce a university called Kent State University, which is a College of Aeronautics and Engineering.
Kent State University (KSU) is a large, primarily residential, public research university in Kent, Ohio, United States. It also covers some areas in Northeast Ohio and additional facilities at home and abroad. Regional campuses are located in Ashtabula, Burton, East Liverpool, Jackson Township, New Philadelphia, Salem, and Warren, Ohio, with other facilities in Cleveland, Independence, and Twinsburg, Ohio, New York City, and Florence, Italy. The university was founded in 1910 as a school to train teachers. The first classes were held in 1912 and the first buildings of the original campus opened in 1913. Since then, the university has developed to include many additional baccalaureate and graduate programs of study in the fields of arts and sciences, research opportunities, as well as over 1,000 acres (405 ha) and 119 buildings on the Kent campus.
As of September 2016, Kent State is one of the largest universities in Ohio with 40,782 students in its eight campuses. It is ranked by the Carnegie Foundation as one of the top 77 public research universities in the US and one of the top 76 in community engagement. In 2010, Kent State was ranked as one of the top 200 universities in the world by Times Higher Education. Kent State offers over 300-degree programs, among them 250 baccalaureates, 40 associate’s, 50 master’s, and 23 doctoral programs of study, which include such notable programs as nursing, business, history, library science, aeronautics, journalism, fashion design, and the Liquid Crystal Institute.
However, it was on May 4, 1970, that this university attracted attention in the world. A shocking and tragic shooting event had happened here. On that day, an Ohio Army National Guard unit fired at students during an anti-war protest on campus, killing four and wounding nine. The Guard had been called into Kent after several violent protests in and around campus. The main cause of the protests was the United States’ invasion of Cambodia during the Vietnam War. The shootings resulted in a closure of the campus. Around the country, many college campuses canceled classes or closed for fear of similar violent protests. In Kent, schools were closed and the National Guard restricted entry into the city limits, keeping patrolling the area until May 8. Incidences like above were out of everyone’s expectation and deserved people to rethink profoundly.
Many universities have various items to symbolize their school. Here Kent State University has a unique lapel pin to represent itself. It has a neat design style with gold finish. Students from this university can proudly take it with them as it is easy to carry and keep.
