Welcome to Kent State University! We are so excited for you to officially begin your journey as a new Golden Flash. The first step in your journey is to participate in Destination Kent State New Student Orientation, a required virtual program.
Destination Kent State New Student Orientation is a required comprehensive virtual experience for both students and their families! Orientation will prepare students and their families to begin their collegiate journey at Kent State University. Individuals wanting to enhance their experience with an optional, in-person opportunity are invited to register for Campus Connection beginning May 1. Learn more.
The office of Student Success Programs (SSP) is here to see both students and their families through the Destination Kent State (DKS) New Student Orientation experience. Although required for all new students, the Parent and Family version of DKS is optional, but strongly recommended for any individual who will be helping to support their student during their Kent State journey.
