On March 9, 2011, the School of Communication Studies awarded its top students at the Celebration of Success. Students were invited to take part in a light reception with refreshments and mingle with current students, faculty and staff while being recognized for their scholastic achievement.
The students who were awarded included all seniors graduating in May or August who achieved a 3.50 or better grade point average while at Kent State University.
Senior organizational communication studies major Arianne Gasser noted that, “I was honored to be invited to the Celebration of Success! Though I am excited to take the steps after graduation in May, I am so thankful for everything that the School of Communication Studies has done for me over the past four years.”
“I enjoyed the opportunity to talk to my professors and the faculty about what I plan to do after graduation. Their guidance along the way has been significant to my success and it was nice to be able to share in celebrating with them”
The School of Communication Studies graduate students will be awarded at their own reception, April 14, 2011.
