From the Franklin Hall Newsroom for Monday, April 05, I’m Ryan Collins and here’s what’s happening…

Kent Presbyterian Church is building a new place for Kent State students to live off-campus. The housing will be on Summit Street and will be able to hold close to 400 occupants. Students are not required to practice any religion to live there. However, no alcohol or drugs will be allowed.

Now with the latest news from NASA, we go to BSR’s Steven Webster.

Thanks, Ryan.

The space shuttle Discovery blasted off for the International Space Station this morning. The shuttle’s mission is to deliver parts and science experiments to the space station, and includes three planned spacewalks. Only three more shuttle missions are planned until the program’s retirement.
