A symbolic ribbon-tying celebration that signifies the joining
of Kent State University and the Ohio College of Podiatric
Medicine will take place on Aug. 8 at the campus of the new
Kent State College of Podiatric Medicine in Independence.

Kent State University will host a symbolic ribbon-tying event on Wednesday, Aug. 8, at 11 a.m., to celebrate the establishment of the new Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine, formerly known as the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine.

Faculty, staff, students, alumni, local officials and friends of the university and the new college are invited to attend the event, which will take place at the campus of the Kent State College of Podiatric Medicine located at 6000 Rockside Woods Blvd. in Independence. As opposed to a ribbon-cutting ceremony, the event is a ribbon tying, signifying the two institutions – Kent State and the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine – coming together to become the Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine.

The event will begin with opening remarks, followed immediately by a luncheon reception and facility tours.

The College of Podiatric Medicine officially became a part of Kent State on July 1 in a friendly acquisition that offers expanded academic options for podiatry students, including strategic partnerships with other Kent State colleges.
