5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many staff members who are willing to help you if you ask. My advisor is excellent and always makes sure I'm on track and prepared for the future. I have made many great memories with friends. I love the choices that Kent State University has to offer, whether it be majors, minors, food, or events. There are a wide range of tutoring services for most classes which is extremely useful. I would choose my school again if I could do it all over.

Overall Experience: I actually quite like Kent State. I am starting my third year as a Teaching English as a Second Language major. Originally, I was a fashion merchandising major, but when they accepted me, they accepted me as a "pre-fashion merchandising" major, which means that this is your declared major, but you can't take any fashion classes. Supposedly, it was because I didn't score high enough on the math test they gave me and because my high school gpa was too low. So basically, just a way to get me to come to the school. Then I found out that other pre-majors were getting to take fashion classes, despite their gpa and remedial classes. I don't know what was up with that because nobody has a straight answer for me. Not to mention that there was only one person on the whole fashion school faculty that didn't have a nasty attitude. I switched because I was tired of dealing with the Fashion school in general. Even some of the fashion students carry the nasty attitude. Staying in the dorms is extremely expensive, but finding an affordable apartment around is difficult.

The thing i hate about Kent State is that NONE OF THE STAFF EVER KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT EVER??? The paperwork is always wrong due to mistakes in the office, any time you ask a question, each person you ask tells you something different. It's extremely frustrating trying to speak with a counselor considering that you're required to do it and they always tell me the wrong information. We had to sign a petition to get the ridiculous 15 credit cap removed. The remedial math program is ridiculous. Even people who are good at math don't understand. You're in a class with 80+ people and the program is online but the "help" the program gives you is confusing and when you go to tutoring, they'll just tell you to do it a different way. Oh yeah and you have a half a semester to finish a class. You have a half semseter to learn things that probably took over the whole year in high school.

Overall Experience: The admission process was simple and straight forward. It was easy to register for all of my required classes this semester and even got to take up an extra class outside of my major. I look forward to the great experiences I will have at my college as I prepare myself for my career.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am going to Kent for Graduate School because it offers a program that allows me to work and go to school at the same time.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I absolutely love everything about where I go to school. I have met so many people and I have already learned so many things that will help me when I become a teacher. I am very happy that I lived in a dorm, and I am very happy with my major choice.

Overall Experience: I wouldn't trade my experience at Kent State for anything. I still utilize my degree in my career even 4 years into it. Great professors and a really unique mix of people. I have lifelong friendships from my 4 years at Kent State. It was a perfect school for my major!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: When I first considered Kent State University I was a little scared. I didn't really want to stay in Cincinnati and attend college but I didn't want to go too far away either. I've experienced going away to Band Camp and other events which took me away from home but knew I would soon return. Going away to college would be a different experience. Arriving for a Campus visit wasn't as bad as I had anticipated. The campus was "lush and clean", the students /volunteers were helpful and friendly....I knew I would fit in perfectly!! I am currently a new member of Zeta Phi Beta sorority, I've participated in volunteer work helping the youth in the Kent/Akron community. I'm involved in a

dance group "barefeet dance tribe" which performs on campus at events and surrounding areas such as Akron and Canton Ohio. Kent State has opened my mind to different people, opportunities and programs that are available to all students for multiple likes and interest. I'm very happy I chose Kent State University as my school of choice. My professor are adamant in insuring that the students are grasping the information/material discussed in class. Many offer "one on one" consultation for those that need extra help. Safe and comfortable areas for study and project conducting. Kent State University is a great establishment for higher education.

Overall Experience: I have been on Kent State's campus four times now and each time I have felt more welcomed than any other college I have visited. Events that I have already attended at Kent State have been well organized and informative. Each member that I have encountered on campus thus far has been extremely kind, friendly, and helpful. I have already fallen in love with Kent State and that is why I wouldn't choose another college if I could start this process over.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year at Kent State University was the best I have ever spent at an educational institution. I made many friends as well as academic guides that I will remember throughout my college life and career. I was able to find my way around the campus thanks to the many maps of the campus given to me, also I was able to complete my school work very efficiently thanks to the many areas to quietly study as well as the tutors in the library.

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.
