Overall Experience: Kent State is really what you make of it. If you're a hardworking student, you will probably utilize the college's resources and opportunities very successfully, however some people never end up taking their classes seriously and therefore do not make the most of their education.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't had many problems with my professors and I generally enjoy classes. The professors are very commited to their jobs and it makes the learning process much easier. However, there isn't a wide variety of courses offered and it can often be a hassle for students to sign-up for the classes that they need.

Overall Experience: Kent State takes many steps to help students with their career. I feel like I will have many opportunities to get a job once I graduate and we have a good quality of alumni. I don't usually see recruiters on campus but our student career services is very helpful and students can easily get a job or internship if they put in the work.

Health & Safety: There have been issues with campus safety among students and staff. However, I personally have not had any issues with safety or sexual assault and I generally feel safe on campus. And in the event I feel unsafe, Kent state has taken actions to help others feel safe including campus service that will escort you home if you do feel unsafe.

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.
