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.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: everyone is friendly and helpful

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The attractive guys are all athletes or in a fraternity and if you find one that is slightly attractive, he's usually already taken.

Much has been said about the "hookup culture" on college campuses. Kent State is no exception to this trend, evolution, triumph, or travesty (depending on how you look at it). However, mourning the dating game is not in order. There are plenty of students in, seeking, or open to exclusive relationships. In short, dating is not dead. The romantic and sexual lives of students vary depending on their interests. Because of the diversity of the student population, it’s difficult to paint a picture of a typical male or female Kent State student. Current stereotypes aren’t definitive, and the classics may no longer be applicable. She owns at least one pair of leggings, maybe even jeggings, and he’ll wear that sweater from Mom––if not because he appreciates it, then because he knows the ladies do. And that’s about as standard as it gets. You’ll find many types of girls and just as many types of guys, because again, the student population is diverse. 

It may be a notable statistic that there are more female students than male students (it's about a 3-to-2 ratio), but with as large a number of students as there are at Kent State, that fact is not as noticeable as one might expect.

Social Scene
There is a mix of social options to suit the diverse interests of the student body. There are parties every weekend and plenty of them. Most first-years get caught up in the excitement of the party scene, but increasingly, older students tend to favor the bar scene or small parties with a few friends. Whatever your interests, there are things to do and plenty of people to meet.
Hookups or Relationships?
Most of freshman year is dedicated to hooking up, or trying to, but by the end of their second year, many have started to settle down. Some will continue to hook up for much longer, and some start serious relationships much earlier. In short, there's a healthy mix of hookups and relationships, and those looking for either should be able to find what they seek.
Dress Code
Style on campus is diverse, to say the least. Girls either have their own unique way of dressing, or the standard leggings/UGGs/North Face combination that's pervaded many a campus. For guys, jeans are pretty standard, but the fits vary from baggy to slim and then some. Whether you want to blend in or stand out, there's ample opportunity to do so at Kent.
