Get Ready to Celebrate Homecoming 2012Posted Sept. 24, 2012 | Lindsay Kuntzman
Homecoming 2012 will be here in less than four weeks! Scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 20, a day full of fun activities has been planned for faculty, staff, students, alumni and the community.
Highlights of the day include the annual Bowman Cup 5K Race, the Hospitality Tent at the Williamson Alumni Center, the Homecoming parade and Kiss on the K. Several new homecoming events will make their debut this year, including a mentalist show by Christopher Carter, Kent City tours on Lolly the Trolley and an art auction of the works of Kent State alumni, Tom Batiuk, ’69, and Chuck Ayers, ’71. The day concludes as the Golden Flashes take on the Western Michigan Broncos with kick-off at 3:30 p.m.
Many other Homecoming events are being held throughout the week including a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 18, for the new Student Green in front of the Risman Plaza.
