Your Student’s Journey

At Kent State, we realize the important role that parents and families play in the success of our students. Your investment began long ago—and we intend to make sure it pays off. While attending Kent State, your student will receive academic support, real-world experience, exposure to a diverse and inclusive campus culture, and the philosophy that new ideas matter.

 

Your involvement is still the key to their future development. You are an important partner, and with your support, your child will be on the right path towards achieving academic success.

As members of the Kent State community, we encourage you to ask questions, learn about college life, be informed about what is going on around campus, and to build your own Kent State experience. If you can’t find what you are looking for on this website, feel free to reach out to us.

Parents & Families Association

We know you are excited about your student’s experience. Do you also feel the need to create your own connection and communication with campus? We understand. That’s why we invite you to become members of the new Parents and Families Association and build your own network with other Kent State parents.

We welcome all parents, grandparents and guardians to get involved. Your support will always be the best way to promote your student’s success.
