History

In 1910, the Kent State Normal School was established as a college for training public school teachers as part of the Lowery Bill which also created sister school Bowling Green State Normal School. The new school was constructed on land donated by William S. Kent (grandson of Marvin Kent, the namesake for the city of Kent) in what was then the eastern edge of Kent. The first president was John Edward McGilvrey, who served from 1912 to 1926. The school was later named Kent State Normal College, then Kent State College (after it was authorized to issue Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees), and finally Kent State University after it received university status in 1935. The bill granting Kent State university status was signed by Governor Martin L. Davey, a native of Kent, and created graduate degree programs and the College of Business Administration. In 1965, Chemistry professor Glenn H. Brown established the Liquid Crystal Institute, which has become a world leader in the development of liquid crystals.

In 1967, Kent State became the first university to run its own independent and student-operated bus service by establishing Campus Bus Service. It was unique in that it not only provided jobs for students, but also received funding from fees charged to students rather than fares collected on the buses. As a result, no fares are collected on campus for any riders and KSU students can ride free from any location with a valid KSU ID. The service was originally necessitated by a 75% enrollment growth from 1964-1969 and the increasing parking needs of the student body. Campus Bus Service was the largest such operation in the country and functioned as a service of the university until it was sold to the Portage Area Transportation Authority (PARTA) in 2004. It continues to operate on and around campus as a division of PARTA.
