Attend Student Receptions

Each Fall, prospective students and their families are invited to gatherings hosted by the Admissions Office in the local area. These informal “Meet and Greets” are held during the months of October or November. The purpose of the gathering is to introduce the students to the local Kent State community, make them feel welcome, and encourage them to choose Kent State. They will also learn about our exceptional academic programs and student services. It’s a great first-step in determining whether Kent State is the right fit for them. The Admissions Office targets certain geographic areas each year and will approach the local AVP volunteers for assistance by attending the event. Locations are selected based on such factors as historic response, perceived interest, and budget. All alumni attending the event must be trained members of AVP. 

The gatherings should be very casual and friendly. There is no need for a presentation at these events, as Kent State prefers they remain informal and focus on personal interaction with the prospective students.
