5K Race.

Many fun-filled activities are already planned for Homecoming. The festivities will kick off early on Oct. 18 as the university shows that “Kent State Pride is Worldwide.”

This year’s events will embrace the Homecoming theme by offering the opportunity for those living outside Northeast Ohio to run the annual Bowman Cup 5K Race virtually. Similar to past years, on-campus events will include the Bowman Cup 5K Race, the hospitality tent at the Williamson Alumni Center, the parade down Main Street, Kiss on the K and the Homecoming game against the Army Black Knights.

The deadline to register Homecoming events being planned by university departments or offices is Friday, Aug. 22. The registration form is available on the Kent State University Alumni Association’s website and can be submitted online. Registered events will be promoted on the Homecoming website and, as space allows, in other marketing materials. You also can download a parade registration form from the Alumni Association website.
