Visit the College of Communication and Information (CCI) at Kent State University to learn about our schools and majors as well as activities you can participate in from day one as a CCI student. At Shadow Days, you'll hear about majors in the school from faculty and advisors, attend a class, meet current students, and tour the school building. 

The School of Journalism & Mass Communication (JMC) also offers 45 minute building tours on selected dates (see dates below).

Parking for all of these programs is in the Kent Student Center Parking Lot off Summit Street.  Tell the parking attendant you are on campus for a college visitation program.  Click on the CAMPUS MAP for directions and a map of campus.

While you're on campus, we STRONGLY recommend that you take some time to visit IdeaBase (CCI's student-staffed, full-service integrated marketing communication firm) and Glyphix (student design firm), located in Acorn Alley in downtown Kent.Contact Debra Lamm (dlamm@kent.edu) if you are interested in visiting these. 

If you haven’t seen campus yet, we’d suggest that you schedule a campus tour on the same day as the Shadow Day.
