Kent State University Morgan Conley

Flash the Golden Eagle


I selected this school because...

  1. Location: not too far, not too close
  2. Not too big of a school and not too small.
  3. I like the fact that it offered study abroad and many varieties of that program.

Kent State Shooting: May 4, 1970

  • 13 students were shot by the Ohio National Guard at a student demonstration.
  • Four were killed and nine were wounded.
  • The demonstration began after President Richard Nixon announced the invasion on April 30th.
  • Students rioted for the next four days including in Downtown Kent and set the ROTC building on fire.
  • School officials banned the May 4th rally with ptential for more violence to occur but the students rallied anyway.

Final Conclusions

  • Yes, I do think I would consider this school when I am searching for college. I like how this school offers study abroad, is somehwat challenging to be accepted in, and has a nice campus. This campus also gives many opportunites to be involved with university such as intramurals, football games, and the ability to be on a sport team.
  • I was surprised about the major shooting that happenend in 1970. I knew nothing about it and it was cool finding out the history of this school- the good, the bad, and the ugly.
  • This University may be the perfect choice for someone who is looking to go into Fashion for a somewhat affordable price. This school is 2nd in the nation and is two hours away from Columbus, Ohio.
