What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back; I would definitely tell myself to consider an all women's college. Not for feministic reasons, but the opposite sex does attribute to a lot of my regrets as an undergraduate student.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

When I attended Kent State University, the only thing I disliked was how overly liberal it was. Much to a point where everything was considered artful or all literary criticism was adequate.

Above all, the advice I would give myself is to plan ahead. When you move out-of-state it is a little more difficult to run home on the weekend, or make someone bring a single item to you. Plan ahead when packing, make a detailed list of the items you will need. Plan ahead when thinking about finances. Know your account balance, and make a budget plan. Many times jobs on-campus and off-campus are hard to come by. Make sure you have enough money to live off of for the year. Lastly, plan your schedule. Buy a planner and use it! Be prepared for exams and due dates. Plan any tutoring sessions or meetings with your professors that you may need. Looking back, with 20/20 hindsight I would only tell myself to plan ahead and be prepared. College is a different world, a different lifestyle. Without the ability to be prepared and plan ahead you won't survive your new life.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Not that diversity is a bad thing, I like being a part of a diverse campus, but among our students racial groups stay within their own racial groups and rarely make friends outside of those groups.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would have set up a budgeting system for myself starting in the summer prior to college. Budgeting is really a key part of college life. Between paying for food, personal items, and the cost of going out, if you don't know how to budget, you'll be broke quick. I've had friends quick to rush into jobs to avoid this problem, but that only lowers grades instead. Being academically focused, and with the high cost of science textbooks, I had to struggle to learn how to budget. Sadly, that means that going out every weekend doesn't happen. However, the task of budgeting is extremely helpful in post-grad life. Had I started to learn how to budget prior to college, maybe I wouldn't have been so stressed about money my first semester at Kent State.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The winters here. Living in Columbus, it was quite a drastic change with the snow in April. However, you can come to get used to it. (We even had a snow day).

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The parties. The parties on and off campus are fantastic. There is always a good time to be had.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't pick a college because of your friends. Go to a school thats good for your program but that you can also afford finacially, you might want to go to the beach in florida every day but if you live in Washington, the plane flights are going to add up. Also, make sure you have other options at the school incase your program doesn't end up working out for you because many students end up switching their major.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The best piece of advice I could give to parents/students looking to find the right college to attend is to make sure you do your research and be VERY selective in your choice.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The first thing an incoming freshmen needs to consider is what he/she is looking for in a school. I would start off by choosing to either pay less money and go to a state college, or pay more money and go to a private college. Then the student would have to decide whether they want to attend a school with many students or a college with a small amount of students. Then the student must decide what he/she wants to study. Most schools don't offer every single thing one can study in college, so the student would have to do some research. Once the student gets to college, he/she should decide to hang out with students who can be a positive influence of them. If the student can make friends that have similar interests, study habits, and activities, survival in college will be immensely easier.

The Nursing program and Fashion design program are well known throughout the nation. We are also recognized as the school that had the worst riots during the Vietnam War.

What's unique about your campus?

I love the suburban atmosphere that Kent State has because it makes Kent State a relaxed atmosphere. I love the fact that there are so many diversity of people that attend this college. There are many students with a wide range of different socio-economic statuses, different races, and all sorts of different interests.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The one thing that i would recommend to for incoming college students and their parents to do is research. They should narrow down their top choices and research each one in depth. Looking at the tuition, scholarships offered, and the programs offered by the school are really important in selecting the perfect school. To make the best of college a student must do their school work first and have fun after the schoolwork is complete.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Kent State is a great school that brings great opportunities to each student. There is no shortage of things to do within walking distance of campus. From bars to fast-food resaurants everything is easy to get to.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about Kent State is the wind. It may sound crazy but, the wind is terrible there. The campus was built to resemble a school in the southwestern United states.
