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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Scholarships: Tons of scholarships through the school, and they help you find outside sources as well. Overall an easy and pretty hassle free experience.

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.
