Graduate Student Appreciation Week

KSU Loves Grad Students

Graduate Student Appreciation Week was started in 1993 by the National Association of Graduate and Professional Students as a way to support and appreciate graduate and professional students. The week seeks to emphasize the contributions, impact, and value of graduate and professional students on campuses throughout the United States.

The 2021 Graduate Student Appreciation Week (GSAW) at Kent State will be held from April 4-8 2022. This week is a chance to celebrate our amazing graduate student body for their contributions to the university. If your college or academic program is hosting an event for GSAW, please let us know by completing the GSAW event form.
