The athletics at our university are regularly attended, but not the the main focus on campus.
College Student 2013-11-21T17:27:36Z
There are many restaurants located off campus and many discounts are available to students.

Kent State is an awesome school without great local attractions. Acorn Alley is practically brand new and has a fantastic group of restaurants and stores available to the students and community.

It costs a lot to be a resident on campus.

Greek students are viewed as snobby and stuck-up.

Not a bad looking student body.

I plan to find an internship in Psychology.
College Student 2013-11-21T17:18:14Z
Not really much is in circulation.

There is not a HUGE variety of places to go however it's not too bad and there are enough options to keep things interesting. I love mexican and there are a lot of mexican places to choose from! I cannot recall any places with student discounts. A popular place to go for students is probably the country dining restaurant called Mike's Place.

There are a lot of choices for students. I'm a vegetarian so I really like The Wild Goat, Taco Tontos, Laroush, but almost anywhere I go there are vegetarian options. The dining halls are really large and can make such a wide variety of things for you. I love late night food and there are lot of fast food options for that. The most popular ones probably being Euro Gyro, Jimmy Johns and Taco Tontos along with places like McDonalds and Taco Bell. Many of these places accept plan dollars as well.

Well I never dormed because I never wanted to be cramped in a small room with a stranger but they are constantly building new student housing which is really nice. Yes, there are plenty that are older but they tend to be pretty large and reasonably priced.

Health & Safety:
I normally feel very safe on campus despite not liking to walk anywhere alone just to be on the safe side. There are student escorts available at all hours of the night that you can call. They can even pick you up from a party as a safe ride home which I think is really smart. The cops in Kent are pretty strict now too because they have had so many drinking problems and riots so they constantly pull people over but I've been pulled over and they were really nice explaining that they just want to make sure people are safe getting and and it was fine. There are reports of crime on and off campus occasionally but it seems relatively normal (unfortunately).

At Kent, many of the students APPEAR to be Greek when they are not in that they seem a little bit stuck up overall and into partying and hooking up. But in your major you find people like yourself and it seems to make it easier even if in general Kent seems like big partying school.
College Junior 2013-11-20T19:27:17Z
It appears to me that non-greeks tend to look somewhat down upon Greeks however that is not ALWAYS the case. I'm friends with plenty of people that went greek so it really depends on the person. I've heard it is very time consuming to be a part of. Also, there are some great newer houses available but then there are some that are incredibly run down so it depends who chooses you!
College Junior 2013-11-20T19:24:28Z
I know that is very obtainable however the process is a lengthy one no matter where you attend school. My biggest suggestion would be to apply early and not avoid the process because you will miss out on great opportunities.
College Junior 2013-11-20T19:23:05Z
My opinion on this varies. The parking cost is pretty reasonable (I've heard of parking passes costing over $500 at other schools!) but Kent State does not really have parking garages and instead they have many parking lots which are more likely than not far away from your building which is really bothersome in the winter. Also, they are huge sticklers and give tickets (or tow your car) constantly which is great for them but really awful for students. I think that depending what your major is will greatly determine whether or not you need a car because if you're for example a mathematics major then maybe you wont need to travel far for supplies but I'm a fashion design major and constantly have to travel far for supplies and there isn't another way around it! So if you're in the same situation you would have to make friends with someone with a car or take a long bus ride somewhere you are unfamiliar with.
College Junior 2013-11-20T19:17:30Z
I personally do not live in Kent but my friends have told me many stories. I have heard some great stories about having great reasonable landlords in nice living quarters with reasonable rent but I have also heard horror stories about certain off-campus apartment housing so the best thing that you can do is research their ratings to see what past tenants say about them! There are usually plenty available but the good ones get taken quickly so apply sooner rather than later. You normally will have no problem parking but almost anywhere you live there are sometimes issues with having a guests car there which gets to be aggravation. Furthermore, I've never heard of people having any safety issues that I know of.

In Kent Ohio there are not that many things to do besides going to the rec(including an ice arena!), dining, movies, and going out to bars etc however if you travel to Akron it is a lot larger in comparison to Kent, the bar scene is much more diverse and many more choices. Furthermore, there are constantly events at Lock 3, gallery openings etc and if you venture to Cleveland there bigger sports teams games, more museums, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and concerts going on constantly!
College Junior 2013-11-20T19:09:40Z
I do not have a lot of experience with this, however, MANY of my friends ride the Kent State buses all the time because it is free for students and they are constantly running! On the other hand, in terms of long distance transportation, I have had to take or pick up friends from the airport which is probably the best bet for most individuals because to me its is more convenient than anything else.
College Junior 2013-11-20T19:07:15Z
I have not yet interned, however, it is required for a Fashion Design major to graduate so I have to do one. Many people in my major do more than one (I don't know where they find the time!). I am very nerve racked trying to find one and doing all of the prep work in order to get one.
College Junior 2013-11-20T19:04:31Z
Kent State is definitely a college town but it also is well known for many of its programs. I am in their fashion program so I know the most about that program. The fashion program in and of itself is unique to Kent State because most state schools do not have such a prestigious program. It is a VERY time consuming program! On the other hand there are many opportunities to meet people at various events around campus which makes it welcoming to a newcomer. Also, they are renovating and developing much of the downtown area to accommodate college students which is really great because so many things are within walking distance or a short bus ride away.
College Junior 2013-11-20T19:04:31Z
The kent rec center is a great center because it offers such diverse things for everyone! It comes equip with pools, basketball courts, rock wall, track, volleyball courts, weight training, ellipticals and treadmills! It has something for everyone. I did not go greek at Kent State but many of my friends have and that was a great way for them to meet new people and I've heard they have many long standing traditions. Because they are developing so much downtown, there are a lot of new places (coffee shops etc) for students to hang out and do homework. However, we also have a HUGE library with so many great resources at our fingertips!

It's the best because student's differ so much. There is quite a variety of students on campus.

My school was okay until today when I had the worst inconvience with my advisor. She is unprofessional, and uneducated in what she is doing. Campus is great, but you have to know the right people.

Financial aide was lengthy but credited very quickly.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
