Extra sunshine but at what cost
The Latest & Greatest from LaunchNET Kent State
The clocks may have sprung forward but I sprung backwards, straight back to bed.

Time changes are a semesterly conversation in our office. Why is this still a thing, why do only some states do it, who approved making sunset so early.

It's a nonsensical tradition and we simply won't stand for it anymore.

Highlights for the week include: student startup grants and scholarships, marketing behind the scenes, circuits and headshots, a happy hour you don't wanna miss.
