New Year, New Alumni Events!
As the holidays come to an end and you settle back into your daily routine, you may be looking for fun in the coming months. Kent State Alumni has you covered with new events that offer something for everyone. Whether it be swaying to the tunes of The Cleveland Orchestra, hitting the ice rink with family or friends, gaining new career skills or cheering on a favorite sports team, these events are great ways to stay connected to your alma mater.
“We are very excited for the upcoming year," says Jennifer Arnold, executive director of events. “We have a variety of events planned, both on and off campus. We understand being physically present at our events is not always possible, so we also host online events to connect with alumni across the globe.”
And as an added bonus, each event registration comes with a contribution to a scholarship fund supporting Kent State students. Here’s a sneak peak at new and entertaining events, both in person and online, starting this month:
