What started as another day of teaching for Cynthia Barb, Don-John Dugas and Alexander Seed turned into a well deserved break from class when the Kent State Alumni Association and administrators made a surprise visit to their classrooms in October. Greeted by balloons and treats for their class, each of these professors received great news that they had won the DTA. Watch a short video of the classroom visits.
Congratulations to all of the 2012 finalists for the 45th Annual Kent State University Alumni Association Distinguished Teaching Award (DTA)
