The groundbreaking for Kent State University’s Field House Locker Room project will take place at 9 a.m. on Friday, May 3, at the Kent State Field House located at 2227 Summit St. in Kent, Ohio. The Field House Locker Room project is the first phase of the Building Champions Fundraising Initiative.
