A little about us

While we spend the academic year hosting fun student focused events, we spend the summer working hard to coordinate those events. More info on fun events coming soon!

We at Kent Student Center Programming, along with many other groups on campus, strive to plan a wide variety of free events for students, faculty/staff, and members of the Kent community. Our goal is to organize fun, exciting events to provide social unity, new experiences and ---let's face it, some stress relief from those overwhelming classes. So, pick an event, grab a friend, and join us for a good time!
