The Latest & Greatest from LaunchNET Kent State
This morning I woke up and began my casual scroll through Tik Tok where I now prioritize checking a pugs stature to see how my day is going to go. As I'm preparing this it's a BONES DAY -- so brb while I treat myself to an iced matcha latte.

Highlights for this week include student job opportunities with the library, Professionals with Pride 🌈, and how to incorporate meme marketing.
