Enjoy a Week of Kent State Spirit With Welcome Back Week Events

Kent State Spirit and Free Food Every Day

The Kent Student Center, Center for Student Involvement and Intercollegiate Athletics cordially invite students, faculty and staff to enjoy a week of Kent State spirit to start the academic year.

The events are meant to be fun, interactive and casual. Each day will feature some free food and giveaways. In addition, our beloved mascot, Flash, and some players, coaches and cheerleaders will be there.     

Students are encouraged to stop by between classes to meet new people and take part in the excitement of the first week of classes.   

All events will take place on Risman Plaza from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., with the week culminating on Blue and Gold Friday.
