Great and affordable school with plenty of "college life".. Whatever you are looking for is there, as people from all walks of life that attend this school. There is a group or people to hang out with for everyone. Downtown is only a few minutes away from campus and is great on the weekends.
I heard about Kent when I went there for a gymnastics camp. I really liked Kent after that. Doing the college visit proved that this was the right decision for me. Class size, campus life, safety and good faculty is so important to me. Leaving the campus after the visit I felt like they checked every box.
I think Kent State is a really cool university. What drew me to the school was the national ranking of the College of Aeronautical Engineering(CAE) They have a strong record of producing the best students for the workforce. The class sizes are pretty decent and there are a lot of places to grab a bite!
Kent State Is Awesome! Great School to attend. There are many shops, restaurants close by. They have a campus bus so you are able to catch a bus if you don't feel like walking. I would suggest to take a campus tour and check Kent State Kent Campus out for yourself I don't think you will be disappointed.

As a high school student, I valued education, but did not work as hard as I should have. I figured when time came, I would work hard for honors in college. Now, as a college student, if I could go back in time I would tell myself a couple of things. First, I would tell myself to not worry about the teachers that were "out to get me" or the friend that stabbed me in the back or treated me bad. I would say, "Don't worry about your personal mistakes, those won't matter in college." Second, I would tell myself once I got over the little mistakes, to study hard. In high school, I didn't realize how my actions would affect college acceptance. I could have education payed for instead of working full time through summer, and having to alter my school schedule to get in 17 hours of work during fall and spring. I would tell myself I have a 3.9 in college, so strive for that in high school, because when time came, I'd rather be studying for my degree than struggling to balance work and studies to simply stay in school.
Something to do for everyone
The seasons. Having to walk on campus in the snow to get to my classes.
For the most part, my classmates are nice and great thinkers.
The culture. Kent State University has a wonderful culture around campus, people are generally friendly and will stop to talk to you if you ask them something. There are also a huge amount of exchange students on campus, which gives the school a great deal of cultural diversity.
I would recommend Kent State to any student that wants to continue their education, or wants a great job. There are hundreds of opportunities in the world, it is just about getting your hands on them. By going to a university and presenting a degree to an employer, you could potentially get a job that will make you feel accomplished as a person. Whether it is helping other people or fixing technology that makes life easier, a college degree will help anyone willing to make an effort to set goals for an amazing career.
I knew more than other students, due to the fact I joined an early summer program called Acacdemic S.T.A.R.S program. The Academic STARS Program is a freshman year transition/retention program that begins with a seven-week summer program. The summer program offers a unique opportunity to earn up to 7 credit hours that will be applied toward graduation and an introduction to a wide range of resources available at Kent State University; therefore, I wish more students were aware of the same program.
If you are not willing to work hard to earn your grades or you don't want to attend classes, you shouldn't attend this school.
When i brag to my friends i tell them about all the awesome professors i have and all the amazing opportunities Kent has to offer. I also brag about how Kent has free tutoring for every subject. I brag about how the College of Business has so many resources to help students to succeed. We have our own career services, this helps land us internships, helps with resumes, helps with so much.
The most frustrating trait is the police on campus. It seems as though they will do anything to ruin any fun. I understand if it is chaos, but most of the events they shut down are just innocent dancing parties.
My school is best known for the May 4, 1970 massacre. While it has nothing to do with academics, it was an important historical event that is still remembered nationwide.
The black squirrels.
Can't read. Can't write. Kent State. Partiers who drink all the time and do really stupid things. Since Kent State is a large school it is accurate for a certain group of people but inaccurate for others.
I think the professors are interested in teaching and actually want us to learn! I'm impressed!
I attend a branch campus of Kent State University, and I LOVE the fact that I can complete my entire degree right at the branch without having to commute to the main campus. So it's great that the branch is so close to home!
I enjoy that the campus is small (very small), making it easy to get to know the professors and others students.
Having transferred from Youngstown State University, I ogle at the professionality of the faculty at Kent. Especially the professors, who actually want to teach the students, and the advisors who are mavericks of the system.
Kent Trumbull needs to provide an outlet for creativity! Right now the look and feel is about as inspiring as my psych professor's drone. How about BRIGHT RED sofas in the lounge or a floor to ceiling bulletin board from one end of the hall to the other?
The most popular student organizations on campus include: fraternities and sororities, USG, and student media.
There is usually a decent turnout for sporting events, especially for our football games against Akron!!!! People get all decked out in blue and gold for these to support our school!
There are plenty of places to go out for dates on or around campus. People can go bowling, out to eat at restaurants, shopping, to the metroparks, sporting events, to play billiards or games in the lounges, to see movies, concerts, or to events held in the dorms or on campus! It's great! Kent is open to dating life, single life, or whatever!
The dorms are great, especially when you are a freshman. It's when you make the majority of your friends. The bathrooms are pretty disgusting, but it's worth it for the good and fun things that happen in the dorms. You'll have memories that will last forever.
