A breakdown of students by race and ethnicity can be found on the University's website, but statistics will not tell you much about diversity among students. Being a state school, Kent State is relatively affordable compared to private colleges––especially for in-state students. In regards to diversity, this means that a wide array of socioeconomic backgrounds are represented on campus. And though most students come from Ohio, there's a good amount of students from different regions of the country and world. Students of every ethnicity are well-represented, and religious groups all have existing outlets on campus.
In short, Kent State is diverse. Students of every creed, color, and background will doubtlessly find others like themselves. However, what is more notable than this is the amount to which racial and social distinctions become irrelevant. In their time on campus, open-minded students will be able to establish friendships and connections with a vast range of people, of both familiar and unfamiliar origins.
