Parents and Families Weekend | Kent State University

Parents and Families Weekend

The Kent State University campus is a student's home away from home, and each year we invite family members to make it theirs as part of Parents and Families Weekend.

Save the Date

Share the KSU experience as you spend time connecting with your student, interacting with faculty and staff, and experiencing what makes being a Golden Flash so special.  The 2018 event list is coming soon! In the meantime, save the date on your calendar and plan to join us Friday, Sept. 7 and Saturday, Sept. 8.
