Welcome to Kent State University at Tuscarawas! Begin this experience with confidence and excitement! Attend one of our orientation programs and let us help you make a smooth transition and become a successful student.


New Student Orientation is held each August to welcome new students and their families to our campus. During this fun and informative event, students will have the opportunity to meet our Dean, faculty and staff while learning about classroom expectations and finding their way around our campus. Parents will enjoy special sessions with our Dean and Director of Enrollment Management & Student services while students get to know one another! The day includes an always-exciting game of campus trivia and a lunch in our Student Union as well as a Convocation ceremony in the Performing Arts Center. Kick off the school year with fun, prizes and surprises! Reservations are required.
An abbreviated program is offered in January to welcome new students who will begin classes in our Spring semester.
