Hyde Park Forum

Kent Student Center

The Kent State University School of Communication Studies will host its annual Hyde Park Forum on April 24, 2018, in the Student Center Ballroom of the Kent State campus.

The event, which starts at 7 p.m., is an opportunity for students enrolled in the Introduction to Human Communication course to engage in persuasive public discourse for an audience of peers, family and faculty. Students come from a variety of majors. 

Judges rate student performances to designate first, second, third and honorable mentions. The forum, which typically draws 700 people to the event, includes audience members casting their votes for their favorite speaker who is named the winner of the People’s Choice Award.
