Christian - 03/18/2020

Overall, Kent State University At Salem is a good university & known to be a cheaper way to get a good education. The professors are nice and usually good at their job. Some aren’t the greatest but for the most part they do a good job. The only big criticism I have is the advisors are clueless & could mislead you or not tell you important details that you need to know. The food is just average unfortunately but the classes are small & computers are easily accessible which is the best part of it.

Kimberly - 12/31/2018

Kent State at Salem is the perfect college for someone looking for small class sizes and professors who are readily available. Kent State at Salem provides resources and tutoring for students who are struggling. However, Kent State at Salem is not the school for athletically inclined students. There is no housing available on campus, but there is housing off-campus. Grocery stores, fast food, and limited shopping is just a short five minute drive away.

Gabriella - 10/12/2018

I prefer a smaller school and this is exactly the type of environment that I was looking for. The people are extremely nice and the teachers are willing to help when they can! Even the janitors and workers there are always so friendly to me. I feel safe there as well. They put new protocols in like locking the door when class starts. I love Kent Salem very much!

Astoria - 12/11/2017

I love being a student at Kent State University at Salem because I love the size of the school and I love being around every person that I know. Everything is nice there at the school, including the cleanliness and the food. It's nice to have space around to study that is quite.

  5. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    The size, location, and the quality of education along with the professionalism of the faculty and staff is what I consider to be the most unique quality of the Kent State University-Salem Campus. The Salem Campus of Kent State University consists of only one building settled amongst acres of farmland that sets within a mile or two just off of the outskirts of the beautiful Historical District of Salem, Ohio. What the Salem Branch may lack in size if compared with other schools surely counterbalances it with the dynamics of education and expertise of the faculty.

I had gone to Career Events in high school and so forth but never found what I wanted to do until many semesters into college. Once I picked my major I was able to have an outline of my career path.

  13. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about my school is the small lobby and the lack of a cafeteria. The lobby is very small which causes difficulty sometimes having somewhere to sit during class breaks. Additionally, the school does serve pizza in the lobby from various pizza shops. Unfortunately some student have class during the times that pizza is being served; so they either miss a meal or have to leave campus to get something to eat. It would be very beneficial if the school were to add a cafeteria to ensure that every student would get a meal.
