As Kent State University President Dr. Beverly J. Warren prepares to depart the university, we sat down with President Warren to discuss her time as leader of the university.

Dr. Warren became the 12th president of Kent State University in July 2014. She will be suceeded by current Kent State Provost, Dr. Todd A. Diacon.

The Kent State varsity eSports team plays on four different platforms: Overwatch, League of Legends, Hearthstone, and Rocket League. As new games become popular, the university will consider adding them as competitive platforms.

John Saylor works with the developmentally disabled, helping them with job placements and housing, to name just a little of his involvement.  But he also is a fashioner of specialty guitar pins and other parts for the instrument.  We spoke with him at the shops of Guitar Parts and More.
