    Unfortunately there aren't really any great options for saving your money. Do not ever purchase things from the school store unless you're forced to. The food's overpriced and cold medicine is twelve dollars so go off campus for the essentials when possible.

    Kent is worth every penny I've put into it. My major is small and offers so many opportunities for growing and future positions in my field. They set me up so I am prepared for everything and I know I will be grateful for those opportunities I was given through Kent State.

    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.
