4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like going to a big university. I've joined a sorority, as well as the Fashion Student Organization. I have some issues with the teaching and classes, but overall I'm enjoying it there.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I attend Kent State University and enjoy every second I am there, besides, of course, the cold winter months. The atmosphere makes you feel like you belong and is very enjoyable. I do not participate in a ton of clubs and still have found people who I get along with and think we will continue to be friends for a long time.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: If you are smart and responsible, you wont have any problems. The main thing they worry about is your safety and if you act reckless they are not afraid to lay down the law.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of off-campus options that are a good price and good quality, but the campus requires freshman and sophomores to stay on campus, so getting off-campus can be a challenge sometimes.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you want to party, you wont have a problem finding a place.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Kent is walking distance and there are a variety of options students can choose from.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is a lot of options available and there are places open late so that you can have your late night snack, but things do get a little pricey, so you have to watch what you are spending your meal plan on.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: the process runs smoothly if you get it done early and turn in all the proper paperwork when needed. If you don't it just drags out the process making a smooth process turn into a hassle quickly.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I enjoy living on campus because the atmosphere is great and the cost is affordable. The dorms are located pretty close to the buildings, it takes less than 15 mins to get where you need to be.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: off campus living is great

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love eating off campus, I love taking visitors to my favorite places to eat.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: the parties were fun, I'm just not much of a party go-er

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I've never had an issue with the campus rules besides the parking services and towing company.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: the communication between the college and its "tuition paying units" (what they call students) is very poor. I had to write several letters to get aid, and they strongly and clearly push loan opportunities but not for grants or scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: the dorms are very versitile and allow creativity to flow. I love the large windows and the easiness to change roommates and or rooms (speaking from my own instances). and they're so close to all the class buildings.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I wouldn't care to be in Greek life, the bad outweighs the good.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It isn't a total hassle, but it isn't always the easiest thing to do.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
