Extension Classes Came before Campus Ones [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 19 August 1965
Extension Classes Came before Campus Ones Because Kent State's first president was an impatient man, the University offered courses in 25 northeastern Ohio communities early in the 20th century,- even before there were any classes on the Kent campus! KSU, established in 1910 by the Ohio General Assembly as a two-year normal school for teacher-training, had as its first president John E. McGilvrey. He had had experience with off-campus extension courses at Macomb Normal School in Illinois. Unwilling to wait for buildings and program to be ready at Kent, he said, "Since students cannot come to the campus, we will take the campus to the students." So it was that in 1912 Kent State became Ohio's first institution of higher learning to offer off-campus instruction. Later discontinued, then started again spasmodically, mostly for in-service training of teachers, the Academic Center concept as such came into full bloom by the mid-50's. Today, William M. Stephens, director of the Division o...

Most in Poll Would Not Change Voting Age to 18 A majority of those polled at random on campus recently believe the voting age should not be lowered to 18, even when it would mean their being able to vote sooner themselves. Inquiring reporters Jane Riggs and Janet Sarbey asked persons they interviewed, "Do you approve of lowering the voting age to 18?" Here are some of the replies: Ed Rober of Cuyahoga Falls, 17-year-old incoming student in Arts and Sciences No. Some people say if you're in the Army, you should be able to vote, but I don't agree. Just because you can shoot a gun doesn't mean you have the right to hold your country's position in your hands. Judy Hanner, Cambridge, 17, new student, School of Music Yes, I think it should be lowered. Everyone wants to be treated as an adult and 18 is a good year to start. Cheryl Gibbs, Elyria, under 18, new student in elementary education No, 18 is not mature enough. Ron Wallie, Kirkland, 18, new student, math major Some people 18 are ma...
