Kent State University at Kent Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (24)
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.
Excellent architecture program, affordable compared to other accredited programs.
Kent State is a tight-knit community with many amenities and a great learning environment. I received one-on-one mentoring in the Geography Department.
Deciding to attend Kent State was the best decision I could've made coming out of high school. The journalism school is an amazing place to learn and grow as a writer, and my experiences with student media helped me land four internships, one of which I'm at currently
Like all programs there are pluses and minuses. I was in the BSN program and reached a rocky period, I was discharged from the program. That program was good yet it was inflexible. Perhaps that is necessary. However, after completing 3/4 of my classes I received credit for only one class. I began the Associates degree and had to repeat three of the classes I had passed and received credit for in the BSN program. Upon completion of the ADN program, I assumed the completion of the BSN would just require my completion of the other 1/4 of the classes. Unfortunately I was told I would receive credit for only 1/4 of the classes required for my BSN. The original cost of the program was $25000 I am now close to $38000 and I still have more classes to take. This is very frustrating but I believe there is nothing better than a good education and I am getting that.
Speech Pathology is a hard field to study because it's so competitive and getting into grad school is difficult. Study, do a lot of volunteer work/work related experiences, and make friends with professors.
