The KSU Spring '22 Season Premiere is Here
The Latest & Greatest from LaunchNET Kent State
Between Betty White (rip), Bob Saget (rip Danny Tanner), the premiere of Euphoria (no spoilers please), the final season of Attack on Titan (Hange the absolute goat), and the disease that doesn't leave...the year is off to a dynamic start.

With that being said, welcome back! Let's have a good spring semester, shall we.

Highlights for this week include opportunities for art entrepreneurs, programs to advance your ideas and career, resources to learn for free, and our favorite New Yorker: Elmo.
