Destination Kent State

Destination Kent State has returned! The summer advising and registration program at Kent State University is a one-and-a-half-day experience that includes an overnight stay in a residence hall. Students are encouraged to invite family members and guests to participate in the program.

The students explore important topics, including the differences between high school and college, navigating the university and properly preparing to be a college student. Family members and guests learn about essential tools for a positive college experience, such as financial aid, academic success tips and support skills for being the parent/family member of a college student.

The program concludes on the second day when the students meet one-on-one with an academic advisor to create an academic plan.

This year, advising and registration sessions are being scheduled between June 6 and July 20 with a break the week of July 4.

Destination Kent State is back! The June and July advising and registration program is a one-and-a-half-day experience that includes an overnight stay in a residence hall. New, first-year students are encouraged to invite family members to participate in the program.

Eight College of Communication and Information students led the class of 2017 through their Destination Kent State (DKS) experience as Flashguides this summer. Making up nearly 40 percent of the Flashguides, CCI students worked with peers in other colleges to bring 25 groups of freshmen and their families through orientation.

Many of the CCI helpers said they wanted to become Flashguides as soon as they experienced their own DKS. Taylor Winter, a health communication major, said her orientation even helped her decide to major in communications.
