Kent State's longest-standing tradition: Homecoming! Homecoming is a great time for alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and the community to show their Kent State spirit. We celebrated 100 years of Homecoming and took part in traditions such as the Bowman Cup 5K Race, the Homecoming Parade, a Welcome Home Party, Kiss on the K, the Flash Nation Tailgate and Football Game as well as many other events.  Please visit our site again later this year for Homecoming 2019 information.
