    The campus is beautiful and Kent is a pretty well-known school. I think it's worth the price.

    I do feel like it is a little expensive, but I do feel the education is quality. So far I've only had two teachers that I really disliked and thought my money/time was wasted.

    Inexpensive compared to many colleges and the education and college experience you get are well worth the money.
