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

When trying to find the right college for you, be sure that you understand what type of campus you are interested in. Keep in mind the cost of the education you want to recieve and weather or not it is affordable for you. If you already know what your main area of focus is, then maybe look into schools that are strong in that particular area. In order to make the most of your college experience, keep an academic goal in mind and really work towards it. Getting good grades can really make it more exciting to learn and look what the future holds. Also, don't be afraid to meet new people and learn how other people live. Having a good social life will also help make your experience worth while.

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

I don't think that the financial aide help is not as helpful as it could be.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have know exactly what major I wanted insted of changing it a few times.

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

i would say visit every college you think you may want to go to. you never know if it is the right fit til you try it on for a day. Look for a school that best fits you and what you are looking for in a college. As for making the most of the college experience no matter if you live on campus or off its what you put into college is what you will get back. So go to the football games, go to a play, join a few clubs, and take advantage of all the campus has to offer.

Describe the students at your school.

In the architecture program, the students are like one giant group of close friends. We're always together (due to program) so we tend to get along pretty well.

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

Definitely go visit the college. I was told that I'd know when I got to the right one. I didn't necessarily believe that, until I went on the college visits. I knew as soon as I set foot on campus that I could spend the next 5 years here; that this was the right school and program for me. Do your homework on the different types of programs and degrees available too. Meet with the director of the program that you're interested in. Talk to current students.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmated are fairly determined and pretty driven students, who take their coursework seriously, but leave pleanty of time to socialize.

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

Choose a college that you feel comfortable at. Don't let anyone else make your choice for you. If you aren't comfortable there, chances are you aren't going to get the best experience. The class of the college doesn't mean much. Just because it may not have the best acedemics doesn't mean you can't still get a great job and live a great life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Conservative people offended by homosexuality, drinking, and the use of marijuana would probably feel uncomfortable at this school.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who cannot self motivate. It's easy with all the big classes to skip and not even be noticed. School has to be important to you or you'll slip through the cracks

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

Finding the right college is one of the hardest things to accomplish. As a campus tour guide I suggest that students and parents visit their college choices more than once. The first time a student is exposed to a univeristy the visit is a blur. Your tour guide will take you around, show you all the major buildigs and sometimes explain activites and general detail about the major of intrest. What most students do not do is return for a second visit. That second visit will allow you to jog your memory about what your tour guide told you and help make you more comfortable with your surroundings. No one universisty is made for everybody. As cliche as it sounds, you will know just by the feeling in your stomach if the university you are at is right. The one and only way to make the most of any univeristy is to get involved! Whether your univeristy has 1000 students or 50,000, getting involved in a student organiztion will help make your univertisty feel small, personal, and like your new home. Take your time with your decison, start early, and don't rush yourself. Good Luck!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Kent State are the people. The people who attend Kent State Univeristy are amazing and I couldn't imagine meeting my best friends for life anywhere else.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is able to balance a social life and education is the perfect person for Kent. Alot of students go out and have fun in the evening hours, yet they are also able to recieve great grades and succeed in school.

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

Parents are usually more excited to shop for colleges than their kids. My advice to parents: give your kid the best within your budget! A four-year university doesn't have to cost $100,000+ to be great, but it has to fit your kid well enough that they'll want to stay. I believe that it is more important for a kid to be comfortable at their university, than it is to be linked with what I would call a "name-brand" college. Make sure your child is happy, and I believe that they will be more likely to finish college and move on to bigger and better things.

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

I let people know that Kent State is a good college for the tuition they ask. I could get the SAME BSN at a more expensive college, but why? I'll get the same licensure in the long-run and I'll have less debt! Kent is quality at a rate that people can afford, even during a recession!

What's unique about your campus?

Kent State really goes for the goal. As a Nursing student I know exactly what I need to do and what I need to take to get my degree and I have known from the get-go. The school didn't play around with how much time it would take me to earn my degree or the amount of work I'd need to put in to achieve my goal and I appreciate that.

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

I would tell parents and students to look around. Make sure to use all college visits allowed in high school, to figure out if they want a private school or a public school, a large campus or small, and anything else they are looking for. Also, do a lot of research. Choose a school that is known for their major, so they get the education being paid for. To make the most of the experience one there, be social. Introduce yourself to other students in class, or just be open to meeting new people. Keep an open mind, and don't get behind in school work.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

It is well known for its psychology program and its fashion program.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who does not want to go to a large school with large amounts of people, or does not wish to be involved with a diverse group of people.

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

To the students: Finding the right college can be a hard task. The best thing to do is to go on campus tours while you are in your Junior or Senior years in high school. When you find the college that you like, you will be on the tour and fall in love with it. Everyother tour will just be routine as you think back to that perfect college tour. Another way is to look into the filed that you want to study. If you are interested in Business, look into schools that have acreditd programs and great courses to offer. Or if you are looking for something like the Hospitality field, look into the big cities. Vegas, Chicago, or any tourist destination would have great schools to research. Parents: Don't push your children to go to your almater. It may have been great for you, but let them go and see it and find out for themselves. Be there during the process, but only for advice or hard decisions. You don't want you student home every weekend hating college because they don't like their choice.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any person that is open-minded to change and a well passed enviroment. People here are friendly and social active as well as dedicated students. You should be driven for excellence and you can achieve that here with the right mind-set.

What's unique about your campus?

I believe that Kent State is a very diverse campus that incorporates all students. It plans activities and events that cater to anyone that wants to attend. The campus is a larger on, but it feels like home. There are not many roads leading through it so it feels like a neighborhood or small city that is secluded from the outside world. But... in another side to it, it does incorporate the outside city and the public for community wide events.
