An Exciting Celebration: Homecoming 2012

Kent State University alumni and fans came together for the 2012 Homecoming celebration on Oct. 20.

“We had a great turnout of alumni, students, faculty and staff, and there was a feeling of excitement and pride in the air,” says Nancy Schiappa, associate director of alumni relations. “Everyone wanted to reconnect with friends and, of course, see if the Golden Flashes would win their game!”

The day’s events leading up to the big game included traditional activities such as the 12th annual Bowman Cup 5K Race, the Homecoming parade, the 2nd annual Kiss on the K and the Golden Order 50th Reunion Luncheon. Some new activities included a mentalist show, tours of downtown and an art auction.

The day culminated as the Kent State Golden Flashes won against the Western Michigan Broncos, 41-24, and with the coronation of Homecoming King Thomas Ream and Queen Ann Miller.

Homecoming 2013 will be scheduled for October. Please keep checking the Kent State Alumni Association’s website, www.ksualumni.org, for the official date.
