Dear fellow Kent students - My name is
Mark Hoffman and I'm writing to introduce myself and ask
you for your assistance. I just finished my first year
at Kent in the evening division and am assisting Dean
Sowle and Amanda Kastern (the Director of Student Services)
with planning orientation. If you have any ideas of how
to make orientation as effective as possible, or you'd
like to assist with orientation, please contact me at:
