March 2021 Social Media Recap

Last month, our social accounts were filled with information about COVID-19 testing and vaccination opportunities, the announcement of an in-person commencement ceremony and a continued appreciation for the Kent State community! 

Here are some of our top-performing posts for the month of March:
