The 32nd Annual Black Squirrel Festival took place Friday, Sept. 6, from 2-8 p.m. at the Kent Campus on the Student Green and Risman Plaza. The Black Squirrel Festival is one of Kent State University’s most beloved and popular traditions that attracts more than 3,000 students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the Kent community. As usual, live, free entertainment, festival food, local vendors and Black Squirrel spirit were all a part of this year’s event. The movie “Monsters University” also was shown that evening on the Student Green.
The annual Black Squirrel Festival is organized by Kent Student Center Programming.
