Founded in 1910 as a teacher-training school, Kent State was part of the Lowry Bill and was initially known as Ohio State Normal College at Kent. In 1911, it was named Kent State Normal School to honor William S. Kent. In 1915, the school was renamed Kent State Normal College after there were four-year degrees added.
During the late 1960s and early 1970s, the university was internationally known for its student activism in opposition to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. This was especially due to the Kent State shootings in 1970. Then in 1973, KSU joined with the University of Akron and Youngstown State University in establishing the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine in 1973. It was the world’s first medical consortium.
