I have not yet had just a "bad" professor. They all seem super knowledgable with great credentials and history in the subject they are teaching on; even for GenEds. I took a Media/Journalism entry level class and the professor had worked for a newspaper and a recording company for years! He worked with Madonna, Michael Jackson, and some big name actors too. I am also a dance minor and one of my modern teachers who teaches the May O'Donnel technique which is a super old technique actually learned it from May herself. Every class is covered by someone who was and still may be very active in the field. They are full of connections and just good advice.

I love my experience at Kent State. I grew up in Kent so I was afraid that my college experience would be a boring one since I grew up here. IT'S NOT! They have so many amazing opportunities for on and off campus students! Also, I have a son and the Child Development Center on campus (Pre-school) IS BY FAR the best decision I have made for my son! The staff also have made such a different in my life for so many different reasons!

I am currently in my third year of college. I go to Kent State University and I love the school! I am extremely happy with the campus, food, and the curriculum. One thing that I did not realize about my program, until after I arrived at college, was that it was accredited. I am in one of the harder more time consuming majors at this school and I find that I am enjoying all of it. I am an Architecture major and I stay late in studio until very early in the morning, and I feel very safe walking across campus by myself. I was not very sure about my choice of major until I had a moment of realization. I was sitting in class and I was watching everyone presenting their hard work, and as I watched professors and students critic I realized that I love it. The experience is invigorating, and it helped me understand that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. My professors so far have been extremely helpful and available for conciliation after classes. Attending Kent State was probably my best decision so far. I've learned so much, gained many relationships with friends and teachers, developed better time management skills, and learned how to live on my own. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose Kent all over again. The program is wonderful, and many registered architects in this area attended Kent State and enjoy having their students work in their firms.
