Kent State University is embarking on a campaign to motivate and assist students toward timely graduation. The university’s “Formula to Finish” initiative encourages students to register for and pass at least 15 credit hours per semester in order to graduate in two years to get their associate degree or four years for a bachelor’s degree, and save time and money in the process. Kent State’s Undergraduate Studies oversees the “Formula to Finish” initiative for all students at Kent State’s eight campuses.
Before the fall semester starts on Aug. 25, new students are invited to participate in Welcome Weekend, a four-day orientation program that ran Aug. 21-24 and helped students familiarize themselves with the Kent State University community. The events during the weekend served as an opportunity for students to transition into the university environment and learn about the academic and social opportunities that exist at Kent State.
Kent State University held its summer Commencement ceremonies at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 16, at the Memorial Athletic and Convocation Center (MAC Center). Kent State conferred 1,636 degrees, including 851 bachelor’s degrees, 462 master’s degrees, 74 doctoral degrees, 227 associate degrees and 22 educational specialist degrees.

The school year is coming to an end and finals, along with the stress that comes with them, are quickly approaching.
Kent State University students, faculty and staff can melt their stress away at the Stress-Free Zone event held by University Libraries on May 5 and 6 from 3-5 p.m. Therapy dogs will return to the first floor of the University Library to help reduce the pressures of finals week and offer a study break to students.
Kent State University’s Board of Trustees today (Dec. 4) approved a comprehensive, six-year capital plan that requests state funding for key building and renovation projects for the university’s eight campuses for the period 2015-2020. All of Ohio’s public colleges and universities are required to submit such long-range plans to the Ohio Board of Regents every two years, and all plans are contingent upon the levels of capital appropriations that will be made by the Ohio General Assembly.
