Experience Kent


Please plan to join Kent faculty, students, alumni and staff at Experience Kent on Saturday, June 10th from 10 am – 2 pm. This complimentary event is hosted by the Kent Alumni Council. If you can’t attend all the sessions, please come to those that fit your schedule.

Experience Kent provides a unique opportunity to hear what’s happening at Kent today, meet and reconnect with other alumni, and discover the many different ways other than fundraising that you can engage with and support Kent.

At Experience Kent, you’ll hear firsthand from students and faculty panelists about Kent’s outstanding academic, athletic, residential, and community programs. In an informal discussion, Headmaster Dick Schell ’69 will review the State of the School, the challenges ahead, and the status of the School’s endowment initiative, Kent: The Second Century. Following lunch, learn how fellow Kent alumni have reached out to engage their local alumni communities in interesting and innovative ways.  

In keeping with this year’s theme, “The Spirit of Participation,” alumni are encouraged to join in the Experience Kent sessions with questions, comments and ideas. The Experience Kent Planning Committee is looking forward to a great turnout for this event.

We look forward to seeing you on June 10th!
