A spring Garden Party is in the mix.
The Latest & Greatest from LaunchNET Kent State
Alas, our break has ended and we must now return to the frenetic energy that is academia. But fear not, friends, for even with semester's end approaching we have a myriad of spectacles to enthrall you all.

Highlights for this week include the LaunchNET Spring Garden Party, the TEXTURES exhibit, a CSU Hackathon, legal advice for entrepreneurs, and dinosaurs.
