Students can enhance their academic experience in a number of ways by digging deeply into research, field experiences, studying abroad, or participating in a learning community, just to name a few.

Kent State Researchers to Launch Three New Studies to Monitor Lake Erie

Kent State University researchers will launch three new studies of harmful algal blooms (HAB) in Lake Erie this spring as part of an overall $2 million water quality initiative by the Ohio Board of Regents. 

Harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie can produce toxins that make water hazardous to drink and force cities to use additional treatment steps to remove the toxins. In August, nearly 500,000 of the city of Toledo’s customers were without safe tap water over a weekend due to the HAB in Lake Erie.
