Warren Asks University To Expand Extension Offerings [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 9 August 1962
Warren Asks University To Expand Extension Offerings William M. Stephens, director of Kent State University's Extension and Special Services Division, will meet with a committee from Warren Friday to discuss the expansion of the University's schedule of classes in that city. Currently, only a limited number of education courses are being offered in Warren. The proposed expansion of courses would widen the scope of the class work to include courses from all four of the University's undergraduate colleges. This, according to Stephens, would give the residents of Warren the equivalent of a twoyear college in their city. The expanded college program was requested by Warren's Board of Education. If the residents of Warren demonstrate sufficient interest in the proposed expanded program, Stephens said, the enlarged curriculum will be offered Fall. Classrooms have been offered for night classes at Warren Harding High School. Currently there are 10 University extension centers in northeaste...
KSU Footballers Merit 'Major' Team Stading [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 9 August 1962
KSU Footballers Merit 'Major' Team Stading The Golden Flashes of Kent State University will no longer be rated among the small college teams. The KSU gridders were voted "major" status by the Football Writers Association Friday. Three other Mid-American Conference teams received the "major" designation along with Kent. They are Western Michigan, Marshall and Toledo. Ohio University, Bowling Green and Miami, the other members of the MidAm, received their "major" ranking last year. Friday's vote by the national association of football writers climaxes a three year battle by the conference for big time football recognition. The move for this recognition was sparked by Dr. Carl E. Erickson, director of health, physical education and athletics at Kent State University in December of 1959 at a meeting of conference members. Dr. Erickson urged the conference to strive for "major" status as part of a three point program to improve the climate of Mid-Am football. The other two points called ...
Kent Continues Seeking Goal Of Specialized Accreditation [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 9 August 1962
Kent Continues Seeking Goal Of Specialized Accreditation Two divisions of Kent State University will be judged by their peers this year. At stake is official recognition by national accrediting agencies in their respective fields —business and library science. The College of Business Administration will be host to an inspection team of the American Association of Schools of Business. Representatives of the American Library Association will consider the accreditation proposal of the department of library science. Although the University has institutional accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, it holds only three of seven specialized accreditations in areas of study offered by Kent. Favorable action in business and library science would boost the total to five this year. A sixth, in music, may come about in 1964. From its beginning, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education has recognized Kent State University's education pr...

Cement Walks, Stairs Replace Mud Paths Made by Students [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 9 August 1962
Cement Walks, Stairs Replace Mud Paths Made by Students The latest round in the campus battle between the aesthetic forces and the unorganized, but large army of mathematically inclined students has gone to the mathematicians. This summer 2,969 square feet of cement is being poured to make walks and stairs replacing paths worn by the army of student grass tramplers. This "cement landscaping" is costing the University $12,943. The job was necessitated by the mathematically-oriented army's belief that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Members take the most direct route ingoing from class to class, even if they must break a path through grass or hedges. Campus aesthetic proponents have nothing against geometric theory. But they point out that the ever-growing number of beaten paths is marring the beauty of the KSU campus, frequently described as one of the most beautiful in Ohio. Before the grass even had a chance to take hold this spring, time-conscious stud...
Ohio Makes Long Term Loans Available to Students [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 9 August 1962
Ohio Makes Long Term Loans Available to Students (This is the first article in a twopart series on loans available to Kent State University students.) The newest financial aid for students is the Guaranty Loan Plan of the Ohio Higher Education Assistance Commission. Under this program the commission guarantees repayment of 80 percent of the principal and interest of bank loans made to college students if the loan application has been approved by the commission. Under the Guaranty Loan Plan the student borrows money at the rate of 5-1/2 percent simple interest. Payment of the loan is deferred while the student is in college. The plan provides that the loans be made for only one school year at a time. In order to defer payments while the student is in college he signs an interim note which runs until the estimated date of his graduation. After the student is graduated or leaves college he has four months in which to make arrangements for monthly repayment of his loans. The commission ...
