I think stark state is a good college to attend. Especially if you are not sure what to major in they help you take classes to get you thinking about what you might want to take. They also have lower tuition rates compared to other universities that I’ve looked into

Davonn - 10/20/2019

For it being a community college it’s okay but it’s not the best. They’re really need to improve in some parts like how financial aid is ran. But the teachers are great and very hands so that’s a plus. Yet some of the staff there is kinda stuck up. In conclusion thought it’s okay

Olivia - 05/19/2019

There are no housing opportunities at Stark State, however the tuition is affordable and the area includes apartments and a variety of shops and restaurants. The professors I have had are extremely accessible and will contact you through phone, e-mail, or in person as best as they can. The class sizes are small, so it makes it easy to have an intellectual conversation and ensures everyone will be heard. I have learned so much through hands-on application. My degree is Digital Video and Media Technology, and in my first year I started working with a camera and editing software. There are clubs you can join and they have some days where you get to see what the clubs and social life is like. A lot of people attend Stark to just get their degree, which makes the social life at Stark pretty much up to you to make the most of it. They offer summer, online, and evening classes to help you accomplish your goals. Stark does have a cafeteria, and I have heard mixed reviews on the food. I personally opted for the salad bar option, but there are tons of restaurants within a ten minute drive that you can go to if you don't like the food. Overall, if you're looking for an affordable, accessible, and flexible college that will help you achieve those goals, Stark State might just be for you.
