Student & Graduate Reviews

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2012

The on-line design was the greatest "pro" for me and the number one reason I chose Kent State. However, once enrolled I was very pleased with the technical and academic support as well as the level of rigor required by the program's individual classes.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I recieved my bachelor's degree in early childhood education from this university and was very satisfied and want to continue my education here. I plan to start next month, I live close and believe I will recieve a quality education here.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2013

Kent State University's nutrition program is a great program because of the professors.
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel that the pros of this program is that there are both online and in person classes offered. It is also close to Akron and Cleveland and there is affordable housings both on and off campus. The cons are that some of the classes are only offered online and students are not always told when a class will go from in person to online, and it is impossible to graduate without at least taking one or more online classes.
3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros include strong professional practice classes, creative thinking processes, and theoretical design strategies. The cons include heavy workloads, lacking quantity of professors that provide a narrow framework of educators, and difficult time schedule that interferes with the ability to maintain a full time job to help support oneself during school.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: mostly excellent and very supportive professors. Professors are more than willing to meet and discuss outside of assigned times, Cons: administrative side seems a little disorganized.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Professors are helpful for both educational learning and assistance with career path. Projects have been meaningful and useful. I like the many evenng programs that work into my schedule as I also have a full-time job.
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2010

Kent State was a great school to attend, but I felt I was very limited to in-state opportunities after graduation. I now live in Chicago and am very disappointed Kent's alumni network is not strong outside of the Northeast Ohio region. My experience itself at Kent was very positive, but the post-grad networking opportunities need further development if Kent hopes to be a top school.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

One of the best programs in the country; great network with translators, great professors.
2.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a wonderful program. The only con is the price to attend and not a lot of assistantships.
