3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My one class has too many people in it for how many seats are available. All of my professors love what they are teaching and are excited to be teaching it to all of us. They know what they are talking about and can answer you questions. The courses offered for the gen-Eds are boring, at least the one that I got to choose from.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In my program, they have career fairs that we can go to and there will be firms and potential bosses looking for interns and prospective employees. This gives us the opportunity to see whose out there and who is hiring the jobs that we have a degree in. For my field, the administrators said that 90-100% of the graduates can get a job straight out of college with there help.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in a Centennial building in which I have one roommate. We have a large room with a bathroom that just the 2 of us share. The sink is also outside the bathroom making it accessible even if one of us is in the shower or using the toilet. We have a enough space for a little floor cushion making it easier to have more people in the room. Seeing other friends rooms throughout campus ours is definitely the biggest and best layout.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm still deciding on whether or not to join a sorority. I might wait until next year when I'm a sophomore and have a better feeling of the class loads and how much time I have. The campus had offered many times where the different Greek sororities and fraternities set up tables to talk and show you what they are all about. That has been very helpful to someone like me who has no idea where to begin with all of the different choices.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: All of the facilities that the sports use and play their games in are big, nicely designed, and comfortable to sit and watch a game. The only problem is the football stadium is 2 miles off campus so you have to take a bus to go to the football game.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had a hard time adjusting because I'm so close with my sisters and my family. Being away is much harder than I thought. The campus does have lots of activities on the weekends and during the week. They also have lots of clubs and organizations that you can get involved in to take your mind off of things and have some fun outside of classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My courses are relatively easy so far but I say that because of the professors attitude and knowledge toward my courses. They make it very easy to pay attention and to get good grades. They know how to keep class interesting and on task at the same time making it easy to stay focused and get the grades we want.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is very important that we get good grades. That way when the college career is over we as students are able to tackle the world and get right into our jobs and find career.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are these little stops around campus in which you can call for help if anything were to go wrong. There are also 24 hour gaurds on campus that can and will walk you to your dorm or house at night. I feel very safe around campus all the time.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Welcome weekend at Kent it was all you saw. It was everywhere! You could read about it on posters hung in the wall, on the Kent website, and even on the ground around campus written in chalk. I would say the Greeks are reasonably involved in campus life and good at getting students involved.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Kent sports and the campus are closely connected. We have events that gets the students involved in the sports. It's a great time and a life changing experience to follow the campus and get ingaged in Kent.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really like Kent. It is like a giant family that bonds well and likes to have a lot of fun. If I would do it again, I would choose Kent again and would still be happy with my decision.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Core classes are awful, they either assume you barely made it out of high school or you plan to get a PHD in the subject, but generally major classes are pretty good.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's okay for a theatre major, they tend to push us a bit too hard, but I'm not sure for everyone else.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: It's not as bad as OSU or some other bigger schools

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived in Verder Hall, which was the only dorm that hadn't been renovated when I lived on campus. It wasn't awful, but I still can't believe I paid as much as I did for it.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Honestly, I'm still not sure what exactly they do.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I'm not involved in it, but the rec center is great

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most people are really friendly here and the school tries to get everyone involved in something at some point.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is huge on campus and everybody is very friendly and willing to talk about anything.

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.
