This year’s theme is Cirque du Sib, featuring events and activities inspired by the circus and gymnastics. Activities include inflatables in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center, a science show presented by the Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society, Bingo and many more events.

If you want an example of how to dive into your freshman year, meet new people and get involved on campus, look no further than Kent State University School of Communication Studies student Nicole Machovina.

Machovina’s freshman resume is so extensive, and her dedication to creating the ultimate residence hall environment so impressive, Machovina won two awards for it.

In October 2014, three Foundations of Excellence: Building the Future events took place on the Kent Campus: the College of Architecture and Environmental Design broke ground on its new building, the College of the Arts celebrated the launch of the new Center for the Visual Arts, and the Department of Residence Services dedicated the newly remodeled Tri-Towers residence hall complex.

Kent State University celebrated the newly renovated Tri-Towers residence hall complex on Oct. 15. The event was free and open to the public.

Kent State President Beverly Warren, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs Greg Jarvie and Kent Interhall Council President Brie Jutte spoke during the celebration. Following the remarks, participants toured the renovated residence halls and enjoyed light refreshments.
