Honors Program Meets Needs of Superior Students [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 17 August 1961
Honors Program Meets Needs of Superior Students (EDITOR S NOTE: This is the first of a two-part series on the Honors Program at Kent State University. Material for the series has been digested from a report prepared by James Karge Olsen, professor of political science and director of the Honors Program.) Several years ago studies by the Kent State University Committee on Academic Standards disclosed that the superior student as such had particular needs and objectives and that without a program tailored to satisfy those particularities, waste, frustration and disillusionment were often the resu.ts. The unavoidable inference was that special instruction, counselling, facilities and administration were essential to assure the superior student of an opportunity equal to that of other members of the student body to exploit fully his academic potential. Investigation of this situation led to the establishment of an Honors Program for the 1960-61 school year. ★ ★ ★ This Honors Program con...

Students Say Summer School Accelerates Education But Not All Students Should Attend Ten college students, not all of them summer students at Kent, expressed a variety of opinion on the merits of going to college during the summer. The students, polled at random near the entrance to the University Library on Friday, were asked: "Do you recommend going to college during the summer time?" As would be expected, the majority of students attending summer school at Kent were enthusiastic about going to college at an accelerated pace. Here are the students' opinions on the question of college in the summer time: Wilbert Nichols, an AB holder enrolled in the College of Education's teacher retraining program . . . "By all means! Four years, nine months at a time, could be shortened to three years by going to school is the summer time. It would make room for more students in colleges." Sylvia Blair, sociology major from Kent . . . "It depends upon your goal. It helps to go to summer school if ...
Wooddell Directs Impressive Landscaping of Kent Campus [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 17 August 1961
Wooddell Directs Impressive Landscaping of Kent Campus Larry Wooddell, head of the University's outside maintenance department, is as closely tied to the landscape of the campus as are the beauties of nature he cares for. The former head of the State of Ohio's Conservation Department has been with KSU 20 years. During this time he has directed all of the University's landscaping including the Mall and the areas around the athletic fields, Memorial Gymnasium and Van Deusen Hall. Wooddell estimates that about 365 acres of the University's land is under his supervision. Another 100 acres plus of University property is still being farmed, he explained. KSU, whose campus is often described as one of the most beautiful in the country, is a landscaper's dream, according to Wooddell. "We can thank the Good Lord for Kent's typography," he says."It is the irregular terrain of this campus which accents its beauty." The Kent campus is one of the five state arboretums in Ohio. (An arboretum is a...

Greenwich Village Art Show To Be Part of New York Trip The time of the Greenwich Village Art Show will coincide with the 23rd Kent State University New York Tour, Professor Harry G. Wright of the School of Speech said today. He explained that the famous art show will take place in New York's Washington Square at the time of the tour, September 8 to 13.
