4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is great but they fill up super fast. Most waitlists go up before the end of the Fall Semesters.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Most people go out on Thursdays and Saturdays. I've heard there are some good parties around. I personally don't party and I like that I don't feel pressured to do so. There are plenty of people who don't party. In my opinion though, i wish partying wasn't so prevalent.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is just about anything you want.

4 College Junior

Administration: Campus police, security, and resident assistants are awesome. As long as you're generally following the rules and you're being polite they are all pretty cool.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I never had any big issues with getting my financial aid.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: There are many options but they get boring before you even get through the whole semester.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: My time living on campus were three of the best years of my life. Being an RA for two of them gave me the opportunity to see things from both sides of the spectrum. The communities and atmosphere are what really make it. If you're in a good and active community, you could have a wonderful experience. But of course, the experience is what YOU choose to make it.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off campus. It is great to have your own place. DO NOT LIVE AT THE PROVINCE!!! They will rip you off and management is awful!

3 College Junior

Administration: They are pretty average in regards to strictness. They will always bust you for parking, noise violations, and drinking in the dorm.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I have had positive experience living on campus. They keep it clean and it's a great way to meet people!

4 College Junior

Local Area: There are things to do and the school is near many things. You are not in the middle of nowhere.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There is a nice balance between guys and girls. There is a little bit of everyone. It is diverse.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I more often than not feel safe on and around campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are many Greeks, but many non Greeks too. Do not feel pressured to go into Greek life if you do not want to. It is not necessary.

2 College Junior

Athletics: I feel that school spirit is very low. More people are interested in tailgating than going to the actual games.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There is always something going on. Parties are pretty fun and frequent.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of really great places around, the problem is that they get repetitive and old fairly quickly.

College Junior

Scholarships: I personally did not apply for financial aid.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The dining hall in Eastway has its' perks, but sometimes it is hard to find things that are tasty. The Eastway Market is always great though!

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off-campus during the school year.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene is awesome at Kent State. It doesn't really get crazy and the only night that people really go out is Thursday, which I think is good for all of the students and their schedules, unless they have an early Friday class.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are several places to dine at off-campus. The downtown is only a 15-20 minute walk from the dorms, and there are several little food shops people can go to and it's awesome.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Kent State is very strict when it comes to parking. Personally, my mother was coming to pick me up and her meter ran out at the last minute and she got a ticket. I think there should be a buffer time rule when it comes to parking.

College Freshman

Scholarships: Since I did not apply for financial aid at Kent State University, I would not know of the financial aid experience.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Surprisingly, the food on campus is good! There are many options to choose from and all of those choices are pretty good.

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.
