Kentiki canceled for 2020

Effective March 10, 2020:
Kent State University’s COVID-19 preventative and proactive actions call for the cancellation of all campus events for the remainder of the spring semester. We are following recommendations from state health authorities to limit large gatherings and practice physical distancing to slow transmission of the virus. We take these steps to ensure the health and safety of our patrons and to be proactive in an effort to prevent illness.

Kentiki activities take place at the end of the spring semester. 

If you are interested in volunteering to help with Kentiki, contact Ashley Brightbill at 330-244-5041 or
