2020 Annual Fashion Show Canceled

The Kent State University School of Fashion's Annual Fashion Show has been canceled due to concerns surrounding COVID-19.

More details regarding a possible alternative option to the show will be announced at a later date. 

Kent State applauds Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s proactive approach to keeping our state safe during the ongoing spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). On March 12, Gov. DeWine banned all indoor and outdoor events with more than 100 attendees and provided the estimate that the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Ohio will likely peak between late April and mid-May. Campus events scheduled for campus locations through the end of the semester are canceled to avoid creating large gatherings. Decisions regarding spring commencement and May 4 50th Commemoration activities will be made at a later date. 

To slow transmission of the virus and consistent with recommendations from state health authorities to limit large gatherings and practice social distancing, Kent State is taking the following preventative and proactive actions:

  • March 10-15: Face-to-face classes canceled.
  • March 16-20: Classes will be held via remote instruction.
  • March 23-29: Spring break will occur as scheduled.
  • March 30-End of Spring Semester: Classes will be held via remote instruction.
