Campus Food: All food is basically unhealthy

Campus Housing: Everyone is really nice but it's just too many fake people. Also, everywhere is really dirty and barely makes me want to eat.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I commute from my personal house, so I don't have much insight.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Chipotle, that all I have to say. That's the only place you need to go. Kent does have really nice local dining options which are great for the budget.

4 College Junior

Administration: The administration is fairly okay. They do not give out snow days which is a hassle for commuters, but it is northeast Ohio. The staff and President of the school are willing to listen and help if you respect them.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid office is VERY helpful. You can call or go in person and they are always willing to help you and make sure you understand everything. Just make sure you apply early and you should be fine.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: The party scene is okay. You have to go off campus for a party as the university does not allow it on campus. Going downtown is always a good idea or going to Akron.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Kent Market 1 & 2 always has a good selection of food. Quaker Stake and Lube is a student favorite. Rosie's...oh Rosie's , it is an experience. You never know what to expect with Rosie's...overall the food is not good.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I commute to campus, so I do not know what it would be like to live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I love we have a chipotle close by. They should add one in the student center!

3 College Freshman

Administration: There are less busses in the cold but more when it's hot. So backwards.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Have to park at the stadium and it's so far!

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Tech support is always available

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: We need more food options on campus!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like it but there are a lot of people on my floor that don't know how to clean up after themselves.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There is only one problem with the gym that it's a little far for walking which makes it a bit far to go there during the winter.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus and I don't know much about it.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are enough options and the quality and cost are satisfying.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They don't check the rooms often, so the alcohol use is kind of common.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party on welcome weekend was nice. There should be more parties on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's expensive to get food on campus and there are not enough options available.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The only problem is that it's expensive to live on campus. Dorm fee should be cheaper.

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.
