May 4 Visitors Center gives “historical context” to tragedies

Kent State 1976 graduate Paul Osickey visits the May 4 Visitors Center in Taylor Hall on Thursday, August 30. A special preview of the new center, which is not yet open to the public, was held from 12-5. Osickey, who now lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, was visiting campus with his wife when they came upon the preview hours. The visitors center will be open to the public on October 20, 2012, and will hold several other preview days inviting the press, local business owners and leaders in Kent. Photo by Jenna Watson.
