Welcome Back Flashes!

Is there anything more exciting than the start of a new semester? We hope that you had a relaxing and enjoyable winter break. Here are a few reminders as you transition back to Kent State. 

If you purchased a new entertainment device (Xbox, PlayStation, Roku, smart TV, etc.) during winter break, register it at MultimediaDevices.kent.edu to easily connect to the wireless network. 

Don’t forget to check out software.kent.edu [link] for free and discounted software, like the Microsoft Office Suite and $75 annual Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions. 
For students living off-campus, please remember that the KSU Proxy is the preferred method for connecting to University Library resources. If you need to access other university resources, you can download the Kent State (FortiClient) VPN at software.kent.edu
