The International Student Reception event at Kent State’s library Thursday, Feb. 3, saw an increase in attendance since last semester.
Nearly five decades have passed since Ohio National Guardsmen fired into a gathering of protesting students on the campus of Kent State University, killing four, wounding nine and impacting generations.
This international tragedy has never lost its relevance. Whether embraced or criticized, it is a living and breathing chapter in Kent State’s past, present and future.
Individuals from around the world, from the young to the elderly, from numerous disciplines and backgrounds, have sought more information about the events that surround that fateful day.
