COVID-19 Emergency Resources
Dear Students of Kent State University,
We have all been on quite the ride as our world transitions through this experience together. As we manage our new normal, we are committed to sharing and providing resources and support, engaging with students remotely, and making decisions in the best interest of our entire Kent State Community. Although we are each impacted by the changes in different ways, you are not alone, and we are in this together. Remember: We are here, we care, we are a resource and we always believe that Flashes Take Care of Flashes!
Take care and be well!
