First-year students welcomed to campus the “new” way
Because of safety measures related to the pandemic, however, an on-campus event could not be held for the large number of students expected. Instead, the students participated in a remote DKS webinar during which they learned about the various procedures and services provided on each campus.
Following the webinar, the East Liverpool and Salem campuses held drive-thru events during which each student received a packet of resource material, a Kent State t-shirt and a Flashes Take Care of Flashes welcome kit from the safety of their vehicle.
Campus staff – along with Flash – was on hand to greet the students and welcome them to campus, all while practicing social distancing guidelines.
DKS is always an energized day on campus and, hopefully, next year’s events will return to a format that allows students to be on campus and participate in activities in person.
