Order Your Gratitude Graffiti Kit by March 22!

At a time when we are distracted by so much, it is important for us to stop and take a moment, or two, throughout the day to reflect on the aspects of life we are grateful for...however big or small.

Get re-energized at our Spring Rec and Play Day on Fri., April 5, from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center. Come for as long as you can.

During Rec & Play Day, you'll have an opportunity to pick and choose from a variety of fun activities, such as archery, badminton, Giant Jenga, spinning classes, rock climbing, Bullzibucket (next generation corn hole), and more! All activities will take place in the lower level basketball courts.

The grand prize winner of HR’s Employee Family and Friends Appreciation Days contest was crowned during a time out in the second half of the Kent vs. Akron basketball game.

Kent State is a Great College to Work For

When you asked for a “one campus” feel, we consolidated all graduations to provide a consistent experience, and offered more webinars and regional activities across all shifts to better connect employees.

When you wanted the option to be identified by a “preferred name” at work, we added a feature to your personal information on Flashline that facilitates an inclusive environment.

Ever been through a really tough time in your life and wondered if you had what it took to cope with it? Most likely you have. Last Chance to Register for the two-part resilience series. All campus access.
