Purpose. It’s that sense of calling—created just for you—that takes you from a student of life to a person of impact. Fundamental in everything we do here at Kent State, it’s what powers Golden Flashes on. It’s why we keep on. It’s what drives us and unites us—not just here on campus, but across the nation, and around the globe. With purpose as our guide, we open our minds, uncover new paths and transform the world around us.
