Scholarships: Kent State gave me quite a few options to get finanical help with while applying, havent started there yet but start there in the fall.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation with the bus system i heard is really good can get you where you need to go quickly for your classes.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Some of the classes are very hard, and there are not so good professors. Getting "A"s is very important here, without good grades it means not getting into a major. The push for good grades is very stressful.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I enjoy my nursing program, its just very hard and competitive. Its very stressful to get good grades, and a tremendous amount of pressure.

Campus Strictness: They are pretty strict on drinking, drugs and parking but lax on most other things.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are good choices but it can be expensive. Sometimes they are very busy with long waits.

Computers: The tech support and numbers of computer labs are good, but its expected to bring your own laptop. The wireless is good but sometimes its slow.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't know of many drugs that are used but there is a lot of drinking. Unless you buy alcohol and go to parties you aren't around alcohol but you do see drunk people. Drinking on campus is a no tolerance policy.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Winter lasts from November to early April

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I don't have a car on campus, but you don't really need one. The campus is walkable and there are plenty of buses that can take you where you need to go.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I think that Kent, just like any other university, has drug use, but it is nothing extreme and barely noticeable.

4 College Freshman

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
