Kent State University Marching Golden Flashes

Performing at all home football games and select away games, the Marching Golden Flashes serve as a highly visible ambassador for the Glauser School, Kent State Athletics and Kent State University. Each season, the membership of the ensemble continues to grow with over 160 undergraduate and graduate students from across the university joining for the 2021-2022 season. It is one of the most diverse student organizations on campus.
