Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

It was the best experience of my life, and the worst decision I ever made because I am not 150+k$ in student loan debt.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

I did an online program so I don't have many thoughts about the campus. But I enjoyed my online program. Most of the professors also taught on campus, so they were definitely devoted to the profession. They were also great about answering questions in a timely manner and engaging in online dialogue on the Blackboard platform.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2011

I cannot speak for the University itself, as I was enrolled in a specialized Master's program, and had little contact with the rest of the University. However, my program was excellent, pertinent to my career path, and headed by leading experts in the field.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2010

My master's degree is the reason I have my current job, but you have to make sure you choose majors and programs that will fill a need with employers. The school may not help you with that.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Kent State has a friendly, highly supportive community. The learning experience was top notch, as everyone was willing to cooperate and help each other and the professors work in the students' best interest.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 1998

I had never heard of Kent State University until it was recommended to me, since I was moving to the Youngstown, Ohio area. I took the words of a friend that the school would be the best place for me to earn my master's degree versus the other colleges in the area. Having never seen or heard of the school, I applied and was accepted. The curriculum met my needs, the professors went above and beyond the call of duty, and the students were phenomenal. After reaching the campus and learning of its rich history and background, I began to love the campus even more. After graduating, I did not visit the campus again until 2016 because I moved out of state. When I saw the campus again, I was even more impressed than I was when I was working on my degree. The campus had grown and become more diverse. If I currently lived in the area, I would be working on my doctoral degree at Kent State University.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2018

Kent State University's online master's program for public relations is extremely useful for graduate level students currently in the field of PR or hoping to make a transition into said field. The instructors are highly qualified, strong in both content knowledge and delivery, and truly care about providing students with a valuable educational experience. One aspect of the program that has been incredibly beneficial for me is the academic advising. Through to application process, the initial admission process, and now as I continue my coursework, I have been paired with advisors who are able to answer my questions every step of the way. With that said, with so many irons in the proverbial fire, things can often fall through the cracks, which I feel is the case with the financial aid department. The financial aid office is not helpful for graduate level students, so beware when applying.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2011

Kent State was the best experience of my life. I hated being an undergrad, and graduate school was the best thing to happen to me. The program was extremely educational and allowed me the research opportunities I was looking for.
