Posted May, 17, 2010

Alumni around the world are encouraged to wear blue and gold on May 19, 2010, in celebration of
Kent State University's 100th anniversary

Photo of Tracy McCool and Wayne Dawson of WJW-Fox 8May 19, 1910, marked a special date in Kent’s history – the date Kent State University was officially established by the state legislature.

In celebration of Kent State’s 100th anniversary, the Kent State Alumni Association’s Lake County Alumni Chapter proposed a resolution to establish May 19 as the University’s Blue and Gold Day. The resolution was endorsed by the Kent State University National Alumni Board.

Alumni, students, staff and faculty around the world are encouraged to wear blue and gold on that date as a sign of their pride in this milestone anniversary.

Share your Blue and Gold Day photos with us to include in the next issue of the Kent State Magazine. Please e-mail photos to and include where the photo was taken, as well as names and graduation years of Kent State alumni.
