3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I really don't go to parties, so I am really not sure how the nightlife is in that sense.

Campus Housing: I think it was a good decision to live in the dorms because you get to meet people in the same situation as you.

Majors: I am extremely pleased that I changed my major and I honestly believe it is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

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.
