Two-for-one Centennial Campaign celebration concert tickets
On Sept. 8, the first concert in more than two decades will be presented at Dix Stadium. Because you are a valued member of our staff, faculty and/or alumni, we are offering a limited time two-for-one ticket promotion. From now through Sept. 4, all Kent State University faculty, staff and alumni will have the opportunity to buy advance tickets at half price. That’s two chair back seat tickets for $50 or two general admission tickets for $35. Don’t miss this great concert and a chance to celebrate the success of our Centennial Campaign, which raised $265 million for student scholarships, capital projects and research.
Proceeds from the concert benefit the Campaign for Change student scholarship program. Be part of the fun and the celebration. The concert starts at 6 p.m., and there is a free tailgate party outside the stadium from 4- 6 p.m.
