3 College Junior

Athletics: School spirit toward certain sports such as football, basketball, and baseball are great because the teams are good. But sports such as track and field, soft ball, and golf are not really appreciated as much.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes are very nice and that goes along with the professors. Although the classes may seem tough the professors really want the best for the students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are so many opportunities that come with the Kent State campus. There's so much to volunteer for, they've created over 700 new jobs for students. If one keeps applying, one will receive a job easily at Kent State.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The campus is very beautiful. Also there are many events going on at the University so the campus is great, there is always something to do whether one wants to study or have fun.

Campus Strictness: The school makes sure that our school is safe as possible and if any threat is apparent, they police will put use in lock down to make sure our safety is secure before allowing us to leave the safety of out dorm rooms. In addition, even though visitation is on the lenient side, after a specific time, students must show their student IDs to get into the building, which I believe makes the dorms more safe at night.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not looked for any internships for the fashion program since I am only a freshmen.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I was lucky enough to give the GPA and ACT scores to get into the program when I did because they have now risen the admission's criteria to make it more difficult to get into the program. They did this because so many people where coming to the program and the school was becoming very packed with fashion students. My tip for admissions would be to do your best in high school and try to the challenging classes to work your brain harder, making your knowledge stronger as well as studying hard for you ACT test.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I absolutely love campus dining because there are so many choices to pick from. In addition, all of the take meal plan, which is efficient for a college student allowing for them to buy what they please without having continuously worry about running out of money.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have only just finished my freshmen year at Kent State and haven't really looked for off campus housing. However, when I did try to look to just get a feeling of what the cost might be, if I did decided to move, the prices didn't seem too bad.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The fashion classes are amazing and very hands on, I love my professors and how each course is different, yet linked to help you to be better in each course as you progress.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Kent State gives you the materials you need to have a successful career. In the fashion program, we occasionally have business come to the school and allow us to introduce ourselves to network and hopefully find a job now or in the near future.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was able to get the financial aid I need, but I'm still learning how to efficiently find scholarships online.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love Kent State because of all the activities you can go to, like sporting events and to the recreation center. When I'm not in my room, I'll go to a few football games or go swimming with my friends at the recreation center. In addition, there are so many different food choices throughout the campus as well as right off campus, which is still walking distance.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I am not a party girl, I'm usually either in my room or dorm lounge. I'd rather seat around and play video games and watch movies, then go to a party where I don't know anyone.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: You experience many groups of diversity. Two groups I have seen is international students from China and the Middle East.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There is a great amount of diversity on the Kent State Main Campus. The typical looks are average and the dress ranges from the headdress of middle east women to guys wearing cowboy boots. There are various areas for guys and girls to hang out a very popular spot I have observed is the Hub on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The campus itself is very beautiful and full of things to do, but if you ever DO get bored with campus life, there is a plethora of other places to go have fun off-campus. The locals are generally very nice to the college students, and I always feel safe on campus with all the security that we have.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Lake Hall last year and I loved it! The rooms weren't too cramped, the EXCEL community allowed me to make some good friends, and it was (almost) always very clean.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I love the dining services on campus! The food is normally delicious and Kent State has a variety of foods to choose from.

Scholarships: Applying for/receiving financial aid at my school is never really too much of a hassle. If you ever have any questions regarding your financial status, you can always contact the Bursars office and more often than not, they are extremely pleasant and do their best to help you get everything figured out.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: No Greek Life exist at my campus, so I have not idea what to say here. I do not see a Greek Life on campus. All students are very diverse, and If there was a Greek Life I believe that it would be wonderful because everyone on campus get along very well or just kept there opinion to themselves. Students that are close than some may whisper something to each other, but that would have been about it.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My experience with courses at school with professors is wonderful. I am a traditional students, so I feel as if I not disrespect by any professor because I am not as young as the other students. My professor are usually respectful and knowledgeable about the subject that they teach. Most of the coursed that I was recommended to take was beneficial and informative to me. Some coursed I did not want to take because I believe that I do not need to be well rounded because I am a traditional student.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The career center on my campus are always very help to me. All the employees that work in the career center are very knowledgeable and helpful at all times. They are always able to help me with any thing or problems that I have. When I get stuck on something they are always willing to find help for me. They are always willing to find jobs, scholarship information or school that I am interesting in attending.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Choosing a program is pretty simple. However, you can't change your program as a new student until the semester starts, so make sure you'll want to do it for at least a semester before choosing.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I really like the class options. Kent has several classes that are unique or started at Kent, like the Adam Sandler class.

Nestled in the Cuyahoga Valley of Northeast Ohio, Kent State exhibits many of the characteristics representative of many a Midwestern college but offers students a distinct experience that most would not trade for anything. Students fall in love with Kent State for a number of reasons, and many consider it a second home. Many graduating seniors are reluctant to leave their undergraduate home, even if they feel well-prepared to tackle the next stage of life. If they could start the college selection process all over again, an overwhelming majority of students would still choose Kent State. No University is perfect, and Kent certainly has its flaws, but there have been incredible improvements within the last few years, and many more are sure to follow.

In describing Kent State, many use the word "underrated," and it's true that the University does not receive nearly as much commendation as it should. Many academic programs are recognized as being among the best in the nation, if not world, and the University and town of Kent offer a myriad of opportunities and experiences for those willing to seek them out. As cliché as it may sound, Kent State's future looks extremely bright, and as the University continues to garner more prestige each year, students, faculty, and administration alike exhibit a general positivity and renewed interest in the school's continued welfare and prominence.
