University Community Invited to See Why Kent State’s Future Is So Bright
Save the date to come see why Kent State University’s future is so bright. Kent State faculty, staff and students are invited to a celebration event on Monday, Feb. 1, at 4 p.m. at the Kent Student Center Ballroom, where Kent State President Beverly Warren will shed light on the university’s new brand. There will be food and giveaways at the event.
The celebration will continue on Manchester Field with a special Light the Night Kent State bonfire with s’mores and an opportunity to be part of a unique experience that is undeniably Kent State.
Kent State’s Regional Campuses, the Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg and the College of Podiatric Medicine will host watch locations for their campus communities.
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.
