Kent State University at Kent Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (29)
Very good school, nice campus, lots of useful tools/opportunities
Great professors. Was a good mix of old-school librarians and more modern librarians. However, maybe needs to focus more on up-and-coming trends or the future of library and information science more.
I loved KSU. I never thought about going anywhere else. The campus is big enough without being cramped, but small enough to not be overwhelmed. There are so many places to go on and around campus. I would recommend Kent State to anyone.
Kent was an amazing experience. You must take the initiative to reach out and ask for help when needed, but everyone there is looking out for you and your success. The friendships I made are irreplaceable.
The Department of Geography had a very strong sense of community even though research interests varied widely among faculty and students. There was a good balance of academic and professional development opportunities available and a sense that the department and the topics we studied were increasingly relevant in today's world. Over all, I highly recommend Kent's Department of Geography. Kent State is a great place to be a graduate student. It's easy to get around and you get a lot of time with your advisor.
Loved it, but only go if you know what you want to study and have money for it. Please avoid student loan debt, and please don't go to grad school--I did and it has ruined my life. Seriously.
The undergraduate CSD program was great at preparing students for graduate school and the main campus is pretty to walk through.
Like any school, Kent State has some programs that are worth the investment. Mine was not one of them. The major I chose was about to be eliminated, and I graduated with very little experience because of it. Six years later I finally feel like I've reached a place professionally where I would have liked to have been at graduation.
Kent's aviation program is first class. It is a great curriculum with good job placement. The training and structure is very intimate and personalize; there is always faculty to help you or assist with any issues that may arise. I'm very happy with my decision to attend Kent, and I think very highly of the University.
