Homecoming Toolkit

One Tradition that Unites Us All

Be a part of Kent State's longest-standing tradition: Homecoming! Thousands of alumni return to their alma mater to reconnect with Golden Flashes, colleges, campus and traditions. It's also a time for students, parents, faculty, staff and the community to reignite their Kent State spirit.

Homecoming is a blend of long-standing traditions and new events designed to reach all constituents and promote engagement, renew nostalgia and facilitate a lasting feeling of pride. Homecoming is an easy way for each department, division, school and college across all eight campuses to reconnect and engage constituents.
