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!

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.

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

My advice for future students is to get tested from the college of their choice in Careers and academic studies before committing to a major. These academic tests will tell a student where their skills are at, and what major to strive for. This is very important in college becuase it will save a student time and money, and these tests will help any student to focus more on their major, and by focusing more on their major, their grades will always be at a level that any graduate school will accept without complications of admitting a student to graduate level work. In addition, these tests will help any student know where and how to reach their goals in life, and what they are good at. Many students from across the nation are not aware that they may have skills or abilities that they do not know about. Always take the time to test yourself (students) on what they may not know about their abililties and skills; this is the secret to successfully completing college and becoming a skilled professional.

Visit the campus and talk to others that have attended there. Look into scholarships more to help pay the tuition.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are fun, however most of them are usually quiet at first unless they already know someone else in the class.

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

The biggest part of the decision should be where you feel comfortable. You can always make new friends but if you are misserable at the school you choose you wont want to do anything and will most likey want to transfer the next year or even semester. So, I would say, pick someplace that you know you will be happy, make new friends, and have a blast your paying for it so enjoy it and have a good time! Thank you very much and good luck with your college selection. Samantha Fetter

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

The worst thing about Kent State University is when we have class and the snow is past our knees and you get professors that are not understanding about being a little late due to the cold.

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

They should find a college that has diversification of majors that the student wants to persue that way if they decide to change majors, the student won't have to transfer colleges because the school they are attending right now doesn't offer that major. Make sure you have enough money saved or encourage your child to get a job during the summers so that the student can focus on their school work during the school year and so that they get to have a social life when they are not studying. If the student is forced to have to work alot because they can't afford school, finding time for school and a social life can be pretty hard.

What's unique about your campus?

I like that there is so much diversification. I go to school with the blacks, asians, middle easterns, and latianos that I would never have experienced in high school.

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

There is a diverstiy of students on campus. We have the blacks, whites, asians, middle easterns but very few socialize with other groups or types of students.
