Save the Date for Homecoming on Oct. 1

Celebrate Homecoming and enjoy a fun-filled weekend of events including the Bowman Cup 5K Race, Homecoming Parade at 10 a.m. (with a new alumni watch location at the Rock) and football game against the Akron Zips. This year's Homecoming Parade Grand Marshal will be Kent State alumnus and three-time NFL Pro Bowler Josh Cribbs, ’10.

Hang out with family and friends before the football game at a party at the Center for Philanthropy and Alumni Engagement. Come check out the new home of Kent State’s Alumni Association! A great event for any Golden Flash, the gathering will include music, food, activities and more. The tailgate begins at 1:30 p.m. at Dix Stadium followed by the Homecoming game at 3:30 p.m.

Other highlights of the week include the Office Decorating Contest (more info to come), Regional Campus events, Blue and Gold Line Campus Tours on Lolly the Trolley, Kiss on the K, open houses at the May 4 Visitors Center, College of Education, Health and Human Services, Hillel, Fashion School and many others!
