15 Oct , 2020  

It’s not every day you can watch Louis Bromfield works being performed here in Manfsield.

The Ohio State University at Mansfield welcomes audiences to join its virtual theatre performance Separate Together on Thursday, October 15.

As Chen has learned, fundamental elements of research include the ability to be flexible and to expect unexpected things; and sometimes the unexpected happens before you even get started. More…
