Employee Appreciation Day | Kent State University

Employee Appreciation Day

On Tuesday, Sept. 1, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., the Kent Student Center Ballroom will turn into a fun-filled employee appreciation event!

As we kick off a new academic year, we take time to celebrate Kent State University faculty and staff. Your only requirement is to come, have fun and enjoy a complimentary “cook out” lunch, entertainment, games, giveaways, dancing, lip-sync competition and more. Lunch and events will take place concurrently throughout the three-hour period so that departments may schedule release time for staff, and employees will have the same experience no matter what time they attend.In addition to the daytime festivities, a special evening Employee Appreciation Event will be held for second- and third-shift workers from 10 p.m.–11:45 p.m. in the Kent Student Center Ballroom on Sept. 1. Evening attendees also will enjoy a meal, music, games, lip-sync competition, prizes and more.For meal planning purposes, all employees who wish to attend should pre-register for this event by selecting the day or evening event button on the Employee Appreciation Day homepage. All employees who are registered by Aug. 27 will automatically be entered into our free prize drawings.Visit the Employee Appreciation Day homepage for complete details.
