Start Planning Your Homecoming Events
Although Homecoming will not take place until Oct. 1, it is not too early to start planning your Homecoming events. Many Homecoming activities are already being scheduled, including the Bowman Cup 5K Race, Kiss on the K, the parade and more.
The deadline to register Homecoming events planned by colleges, university departments or offices is Monday, Aug. 1. The registration form is available on the Kent State University Alumni Association’s website and can be submitted online. Registered events will be promoted on the Homecoming website and, as space allows, in other marketing materials.
The Kent State University Board of Trustees today established a comprehensive, national search to recruit and select the university’s 13th president.
The events of May 4, 1970, placed Kent State University in an international spotlight after a student protest against the Vietnam War and the presence of the Ohio National Guard ended in tragedy with four students losing their lives and nine others being wounded. From a perspective of nearly 50 years, Kent State remembers the tragedy and leads a contemporary discussion and understanding of how the community, nation and world can benefit from understanding the profound impact of the event.
