See what’s going on. There are always multiple events and activities on campus to choose from including Kent State Welcome Weekend, a weekend packed full of fun activities and events in August.


Each year, we invite family members to share the Kent State experience by joining your student for Parents and Families Weekend. This is your opportunity to interact with faculty and staff. We invite you to attend special events and activities including receptions, campus tours and a tailgate party followed by a football game in the fall.

Oh, and don't forget, Lil’ Sibs Weekend hosted by Kent Interhall Council (KIC) is in the spring.
