What Students Are Saying

3.85 Average Rating
Get involved! There are so many options- clubs, student organizations, volunteer opportunities. There are loads of things going on all over campus all the time as well.
And make sure you realize what Ohio weather is like! Lots of rain and snow, but on nice days, the campus is gorgeous.
Rachel from Leechburg, PA
If you have to take the ALEX placement test for math, take it as seriously as a final exam because it determines a lot.
Make sure to transfer any college credits you have from the past if possible, it will give you a leg up.
Try to get to know your roommate before move in day, even if you didnâ??t pick them. Especially discuss things like allergies and pet peeves.
Laura from Lagrange, OH
- Be yourself
- Volunteer
- Study (seriously!)
Marissa from Bexley, OH
Send in your application early, try to get things done before time that way you don't have to rush for financial aid, and admissions, and all of that. Just be prepared, and if you are not don't be afraid to ask! Its all new for me as well.

Also find the best way for yourself for study preparation before a test. It might help if you do not cram in your studying last minute, and if you study a little bit everyday you learn it more efficiently. Note cards or Flashcards really help, and depending on who you study with, a study buddy can be very beneficial.

Also make a good impression amongst your professors because one day you might need them to help you.
Paisley from Streetsboro, OH
Make sure that you know what you are coming to Kent for... schooling. Have an idea of what program you are going to be entering in to and what the expectations are. There is no point in spending all the money in the world just to be undecided for 3 years.
Amnea from Titusville, PA
I would encourage future Kent students to talk to the advisors here. All of them are so brilliant and they will help you choose a career path for you. Even if you feel overwhelmed, they will help you with the stress as a new student.
Madison from Hartville, OH
-Apply for scholarships! If you don't ask, you may not have it suggested. Unfortunately I wasn't told about everything that was available, nor did I ask, and I missed out. If you ask, you find everything that you can take advantage of.
-Check out different classes. Feel free to explore Kent's diverse programming options, from anthropology to zoology, and everything in between.
-Get active! Kent has hundreds of student organizations, and you can get involved in anything from fencing, to hookah clubs, to card games and volunteering.
Steven from Parma, OH
Go on a tour! Check out the campus and see for yourself how you feel about the surroundings and layout.

ALSO! Don't be afraid to make an advising appointment with the adviser for your prospective major (or majors). It's extremely helpful, and they can really give you a good idea of what you're signing up for.
Christy from Akron, OH
If you are unsure of what you want to major in, Kent State really is a great school to start at. Many of our programs are well accredited and recognized. It is all on you in college, the people you meet, the relationships you build, and the impression you leave.
Nicole from Kent, OH
I would recommend that you join the Facebook mentorship program, so that you will be in touch with somebody who will gladly show you around the campus and town. Be prompt and professional, especially when you first meet your professors. In terms of social etiquette it's always better to be safe than sorry! Also, it's not a bad idea to carry pepper spray around campus. I'm not saying people die around here, but robberies to happen somewhat frequently.
