Kent Student Center Programming Announces Fall Event Line-up

Posted Jul. 11, 2014

 Kent Student Center Programming (KSCP) is a student run department which plans more than 150 free events each year, for students, faculty/staff, and members of the Kent community. These events are a great opportunity to meet people, make new friends, unwind from a long day of classes and stay connected to campus.

“Attending KSCP events is a great way for students to make new friends,” said Student Activities Coordinator, Sydney Jordan. “Plus, the events are free, so there is no reason for a student to have a boring day. “

Kent Student Center Programming aims to please, so you can be sure that there is something for everyone to enjoy! KSCP Student Manager, John Camargo encourages classmates to get involved and get the most out of their college experience.

“The events are run by students, for the students. You are investing in college, so why not get involved and invest in yourself?” said Camargo. “Personally, my favorite event is Mr. Flash.” Mr. Flash is an annual male pageant that takes place during Homecoming week.

For the Fall 2014 semester, KSCP will host 92 events including many which are back by popular demand, such as Bounce Madness, Cardio Striptease and Cyber Arcade. New to the calendar this Fall will be a pool tournament, Drag Queen Bingo and many more. Several of KSCP’s events are FLASHperks events, so be sure to bring along your ID to earn points.

Below is a brief description of all of the events students can expect to see this Fall.
