4 College Freshman

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 Experience: I like going to a big university. I've joined a sorority, as well as the Fashion Student Organization. I have some issues with the teaching and classes, but overall I'm enjoying it there.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I attend Kent State University and enjoy every second I am there, besides, of course, the cold winter months. The atmosphere makes you feel like you belong and is very enjoyable. I do not participate in a ton of clubs and still have found people who I get along with and think we will continue to be friends for a long time.

Administration: If you are smart and responsible, you wont have any problems. The main thing they worry about is your safety and if you act reckless they are not afraid to lay down the law.

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of off-campus options that are a good price and good quality, but the campus requires freshman and sophomores to stay on campus, so getting off-campus can be a challenge sometimes.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you want to party, you wont have a problem finding a place.

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Kent is walking distance and there are a variety of options students can choose from.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is a lot of options available and there are places open late so that you can have your late night snack, but things do get a little pricey, so you have to watch what you are spending your meal plan on.

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.
