University Events Cancelled
Please be advised that in light of precautions surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus), Kent State University is cancelling all university-sponsored events through the end of the semester to avoid creating large gatherings. This includes events on all Kent State campuses as well as university-sponsored events scheduled for other locations. Regretfully, this also includes the May 4 50th Commemoration Weekend events. Plans for a virtual May 4 Commemoration program are under development.

All Spring Commencement ceremonies and pre-commencement celebrations have been postponed, and alternate options and dates are being considered.
