Benefits and Perks
As part of the Parents and Families Association, you also now have access to a number of great benefits and perks. Please be sure to like us on Facebook and also check out our website periodically. We are continually working to add to the benefits we offer our members.
Periodically, we will email you a newsletter full of information on programs and activities on campus that you and/or your child can take advantage of, tips for parenting a college student, staff and faculty highlights and news updates on our colleges and programs.
Freshman Parent Newsletters
Freshman parents can also sign up to receive a newsletter from our Office of Student Success Programs that provides useful information for helping start your student on the right academic path during his or her first year. The newsletter provides tips on things like creating good study habits, balancing work and school and taking advantage of the many campus resources that provide tutoring, guidance and support to all students at Kent State.
University Bookstore - Kent Campus
Because you are part of the Golden Flashes family, we want you to be able to show your Blue and Gold pride; so we have partnered with the University Bookstore, in the Kent Student Center on the Kent Campus, to offer Parents and Families Association members a 15 percent discount on all Kent State apparel purchased at the on-campus bookstore (in-store only). Just show your membership card to receive this great perk!
Kent Community Discounts
We also want our association members to get to know the community their students now live in. Kent has undergone some amazing transformations in the last few years that you will want to see for yourself. For more information, please see the Rising College Town section. When you do visit, show your membership card at participating restaurants and businesses for 15 percent off your purchase.
