What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Kent State University is that Kent State is a family friendly college. When I first came to campus I was part of this multicultural program called Kupita. This program lets you connect with all the other minorities of different African and Hispanic races come together for a few days. I'm in love with my college because everyone helps you get used to the new school and the dorms and classes are wonderful and diverse. Kent is a college you'd go to if you want a family environment. I say this because on my first day there they automatical say that once you step on this campus, we are all family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Kent State definitely has a great education system. Especially for freshman, there are so many people and organizations that try to accommodate every student. Whether it's tutoring or events that they hold, I think they've developed a great structure that provides a balance for education and recreation for the students.

I just finished my first year at Kent State and it was the best experience. I cannot express how much I loved my first year, from all the amazing people I have met or the great experiences I have had. I highly recommend coming to Kent State because I cannot wait until I am back on campus!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion about Kent State is that it's somewhere I feel like I'm a part of and a place I belong. I appreciate the diversity on campus with both the people there and the ranges of classes that they have. They have one of the best Fashion programs in the United States and one of the highest-rated medical programs. I appreciate everything on campus, from the puppies that walk around campus to the lovely range of dining choices.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Kent! There is always something to do and always someone to talk to, given the many opportunities to get involved! Every college has it's up's and down's but Kent State does all that it can to serve its students. If I had to choose where to go to college out of the choices that I had before I left High school, I would choose Kent State all over again!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Kent is a very big campus, very spread out. The town of Kent is tiny and quaint. I lived in a dorm with a bathroom in the room so no one on my floor opened their doors or talked to each other. Dining hall food is average, sometimes good, sometimes bad.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Kent State is like a home away from home. I've met so many new people and have learned so much in my classes. Kent's focus on the arts is refreshing and allows me to further my education in the arts. Any professor I've had so far has always been available and helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Kent State University is a good school. There is a great deal of new buildings being constructed and there's a lot of green space unlike some universities that are in the city. From my experience (I'm a senior) ACADEMIC AMENITIES Professors are pretty good at keeping office hours and some even will meet with you at other times not stated in their office hours. The cirruculum is good and the classes aren't too difficult and there is tutoring offered for many courses in the library. There are also computer labs that are available in the library 24/7 to students. FOOD The food on campus isn't that good, but it isn't horrible either - I'd say 3 out of 5 stars. However you can only use a meal plan at certain times and if you don't have a meal plan the food is kind of expensive in my option it's not worth it for just okay food. It's pretty easy to take a bus to front campus though and get chipotle or you can order pizza and there's some other fast food restaurants too. HOUSING The dorms aren't great - they're a bit dated, but the atmosphere of students is pretty awesome there are always new friends to be made and most people just leave their doors open so they can communicate with people passing by. Off campus living that is close to the university is super expensive, so unless you have a lot of roommates you'll be paying a ton for an apartment. INFRASTRUCTURE As far as parking and infrastructure, the parking passes are pretty expensive and it's on a seniority basis, so it your a freshman or sophomore you pretty much get screwed with parking passes and have to park miles away from campus. But there are busses that will take you from any of the parking lots to campus, which is fine in the fall, spring and summer but in the winter it's FREEZING waiting for the bus! Also if there's road work being done you can kiss being on time to class goodbye unless you leave at least 25 minutes earlier than you would usually leave. STUDENT LIFE There are so many clubs and fraternities/sororities to join and be a part of, and the majority of the students are super friendly and open to making new friends. SAFTEY The campus is safe and there are emergency poles all over so if anything ever happens it is close by. There are also a lot of campus police that cruise around, and if a crime ever happens or any important news we receive flash alerts through text and email that let us know what is going on. These alerts also apply to weather updates, class cancellations, and electrical/water issues. Kent has its perks and it's downfalls, but overall it's a pretty good school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For me, Kent State University is the only college I can even consider attending. The campus atmosphere is friendly and inviting while also laid-back and not too hectic. I feel completely comfortable there, thanks to the amazingly helpful faculty and residents. I cannot wait to move in and complete my education there.
