College of Podiatric Medicine

Foluke Omosun
Kent State University will host a symbolic ribbon-tying event on Wednesday, Aug. 8, at 11 a.m. to celebrate the establishment of the new Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine, formerly known as the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine.

Faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of the university and the new college, as well as local officials and media representatives, were invited to attend the event, which took place at the campus of the Kent State College of Podiatric Medicine located at 6000 Rockside Woods Blvd. in Independence, Ohio. As opposed to a ribbon-cutting ceremony, the event is a ribbon tying, signifying the two institutions – Kent State and the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine – coming together to become the Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine.

The event began with opening remarks, followed immediately by a luncheon reception and facility tours.

The College of Podiatric Medicine officially became a part of Kent State on July 1 in a friendly acquisition that offers expanded academic options for podiatry students, including strategic partnerships with other Kent State colleges.
