Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2007

I commuted to college all 5 years, so I did not live on campus. From my experience, the teachers were educated and the classroom sizes ranged from 30 students to 100 students. The campus is clean.

College is an excellent decision to make if it's what you actually want to do. Many people waste their money on the idea that they need to go to college. Not everyone does. But it is an excellent experience. Plan and save money at the start though, because it is difficult to pay back!

Like any university, your experience will have largely to do with your college and learning style. My program was entirely online, which s***** as someone who lived in the area and needs that in person experience to thrive. However, I did my undergrad at Kent in English and absolutely loved it. So do your research and make your decision wisely.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2011

The instruction was fairly good from the professors in my department. The program really emphasized research during the time I was there. The faculty were generally supportive of the students and available for questions and concerns. There was a great deal of transition in the department when I was there, and that definitely impacted the experience I had.

I found it eye opening. It was the opportunity to meet new people and discover a wider view of the world.

College is a place that shows you are wide variety of opportunities. Be open to all of them. While you may start on one path, another one may arise and make you happier.

Consider all aspects of your decision. I did my undergraduate degree here as well and had a wonderful experience. I adored everything about KSU. However, my graduate program is entirely different and I have had many problems since I began. Just make a decision that is good for you and do your research for yourself! (I do love Kent though)
