July 1 marked the first day of Kent State University’s new president, Beverly Warren. President Warren’s day was packed full of activities which were covered by select members of Kent State Student Media. About 12 CCI students who work for Student Media were chosen to follow President Warren on her first day, recording interviews, posting to social media and taking photograhps. These students represented the Summer Kent Stater, TV2 and summer Print Beat courses.
These students began the day by meeting with President Warren to personally meet and interview her. They then followed her as she met with her Board of Trustees and walked down the Esplanade to the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center, where she ate breakfast with the students and Trustees, as well as city government officials.
Pictured above are some of the students who got to meet President Warren on her first day.
