Your Guide to Destination Kent State

Destination Kent State (DKS) is a one-day event for incoming freshmen and transfer students. During the event, you will connect with campus faculty and staff, set goals, explore opportunities and have a great time meeting new friends.

Students will attend a session with the campus Dean and then attend four workshops covering a variety of topics essential to student success. In addition, students are welcome to each bring one guest to join them during the event.

We're excited to see you at this important event. Welcome to the Golden Flash family!
