    Even though Ohioans, and especially academics, are rather reserved, you can tell that the professors care about us students. The party scene is pretty big, and Halloween is insane, which personally annoys me. However, I know a lot of students enjoy that-- you'll find it here.

    There is so much to do-free movies are shown every weekend, there is a bowling alley in one hall, and there is always something going on. Downtown Kent is beautiful and is only a short walk from campus.

    I had heard that the campus was gorgeous, but I was not impressed with it at all. Everything to me seemed ordinary, nothing really sparked me curiosity. I don't think I would like to be there.
