Announcing the 2021 Homecoming Grand Marshals

We are excited to announce that the Class of 2020 has been selected as the 2021 Homecoming Parade Grand Marshals. The parade is one of Kent State’s oldest Homecoming traditions, and we can’t wait to honor the achievements of this class during Homecoming Weekend.

The role of Grand Marshal is typically reserved for famous alumni, notable leaders and other dignitaries. We feel that each of our Class of 2020 alumni deserves a crowd of cheering fans to honor each one. As the Homecoming Parade Grand Marshals, the Class of 2020 alumni will lead the parade as it makes its way down East Main Street and past Front Campus.

Homecoming Weekend Kickoff

Join us the evening of Friday, Oct. 1, at the first Homecoming Kickoff event at the Lefton Esplanade. This marks the official start of Homecoming Weekend with music, food, entertainment, fireworks and T-shirt giveaways.
