Parents & Families

At Kent State, we realize the important role that parents and families play in the success of our students. Your investment began long ago — and we intend to make sure it pays off. While attending Kent State, your student will receive academic support, real-world experience, exposure to a diverse and inclusive campus culture and the philosophy that new ideas matter.


We are excited to share with you all our Spring 2019: Guide To Spring Semester electronic magazine! This was created in collaboration with campus departments our partners at Collegiate Parent.

Your involvement is the key to your student’s future development. We welcome you as a member of the Golden Flash family, and a partner with the University, ensuring the best experience, for your student on their college journey as a Golden Flash.

As members of the Kent State community, we encourage you to ask questions, learn about college life, be informed about what is going on around campus and to build your own Kent State experience. If you can’t find what you are looking for on this website, feel free to reach out to us.
