4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus living seems to me to be great for the people who have it because it's theirs and they can live how they want with limited rules as for the people who live in the dorms.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Everything that students really eat like burger king and what not are directly across from campus, walking distance and they even deliver now which is another plus

3 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness isn't too bad to where you can't do anything on campus because then you'll have everybody running wild it's reasonable.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scholarships aren't my favorite. As many of them that I've applied for like hundred or so I haven't received not one. I'm paying out of pocket and having a hard time doing that

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Kent could definitely do better on the party scene. They get shut down quickly because of the police. No one wants to go akron every weekend for a party.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I think campus could have better food options or more food options if that. Students like variety not the same things all the time.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus has been great so far this year. There are so many things to do while on campus and in all of the dorms. You have good RAs and students who live in the dorms. Rules are pretty much followed as I every other university. I enjoy living on campus an I wouldn't trade it for anything.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: its always a lot of parties of thirsty thursday

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Rosie's is the worst i feel that the students need to put hair nets on in every dining center. I usually find hair in my food which is disgusting.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is OK to live on campus it is very convenient depending on how much money you have and the dorm you choose. I dont like having a roommate.The roommate experience can be tragic

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: As a freshman admitted to Kent, you are automatically matched to several scholarships just by applying.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not much of a partier, and being a freshman, trying to be one doesn't seem too appealing. Unless you have connections to frats or sororities, upperclassmen, or are over 21, it's hard to just find a good party in Kent.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There's a variety of dining options on-campus, which appeals to you when you're new however many of the places on the campus which are not chain restaurants share the same food items which can really get tiresome after the first semester.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The on-campus housing is great because everything is nearby so it's really easy to get to classes and stay involved while living in dorms.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is almost impossible to do unless you have roommates because it can be pretty costly. Most off-campus housing is within walking distance of campus, but buses don't come to the housing that isn't close so chances are you're still have to spend money on a campus parking pass.

Off-Campus Dining: Down town Kent has so many great places to eat! lot's of variety, nothing is overpriced and the quality is generally pretty good. Parking on the other hand is absolutely horrible. There is no where to park downtown so if you go out, you have to park pretty far away from your destination.

3 College Junior

Administration: Parking is very very strict. If you don't park in your assigned lot they are very quick to give you a ticket. They always catch you!

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Kent state doesn't offer any scholarships in my field so I received no financial help from them.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Personally I'm not a very big partier, but the parties I have been to have been great. There's never any good food at any of them, but you always meet a ton of new people.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There is a lot of variety, but not all of it is very good quality and it can be a bit pricy.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms themselves are very small and most of them are out of date. The bathrooms are pretty nice in most dorms but you have to bring your key card with you every time you need to shower or use the bathroom so if you leave your key in the bathroom by accident you get locked out of your room and out of the bathroom so you can't get back in and retrieve said key.

The majority of the dorms have cafeterias with good food and if your dorm doesn't have it's own cafeteria chances are there is a dorm with food close by.

Living on campus is pretty pricy, but you make a lot more friends than you would if you were commuting.

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.
