What Students Are Saying

3.85 Average Rating
Kent State University is way too often grossly stereotyped and given the reputation of having low standards. I have found my programs and the staff that I have worked with to be highly qualified. The atmosphere and diversity of the campus truly create an exceptional college experience.
Robert from Strongsville, OH
It's a taste of the city, middle of nowhere, and a small town all in one. I love the layout, and the student involvement is awesome. It's also close to some bigger cities, so there's loads to do.
