Kent State University at Kent Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (37)
I would say that my experience at Kent State University was great! Kent State is a very diverse campus and offers many academic and extracurricular programs. One of my favorite elements about the university is that they do their best to get everyone involved and make everyone feel included. I feel that I have met so many so many unique people and learned so many things through all of the programs I participated in. As far as my particular field of study, I would say that my academic experience was fair. One downfall about the biology/science department is that they do not offer many class options throughout the semesters. No matter the concentration of biology, every student pretty much took the same exact classes. One thing I did like about the biology department is that there are plenty of opportunities to work/volunteer in research. I absolutely loved the research opportunities! Overall, my experience at Kent State University was good!
I was a student at Kent's main campus all 4 years of my undergraduate career. Looking back on the days I spent there will always bring a smile to my face. The teachers were always extremely helpful, often talking with students long after class, as well as staying committed to office hours. They were friendly and helpful for the most part, with many of them being voices of authority and respected in their fields. My professors respected the opinions of students, understanding that we have a growing and changing view on various topics and willing to do research themselves to answer questions that they did not know of the top of their heads. The classes were interesting, with each degree track leaving room for fun classes such as ballroom dancing and piano for non-music majors. I truly received a well rounded education as well as acquired skills that I never thought I would be able to learn as an adult. The campus is beautiful. There is plenty of green space and there are always people outside tossing frisbees to snowballs. It is an overall energetic and exciting place to be with plenty of opportunities to watch performances and attend events. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in a well-balanced college experience.
Kent State University is an amazing opportunity for those students looking to get a lot of opportunity with faculty members, looking for opportunities to get involved and students who want a lot of degree options. Kent's advising staff in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications was outstanding. From the day I stepped on campus, they helped me build a schedule and achieve my course goals. I was able to graduate from the Honors College, earn a Bachelor's in applied communication and receive minors in public relations and Spanish. I highly recommend Kent State!
In my four years at Kent State University, I experienced a mediocre education overall. Within my major, connecting with professors was very challenging due to being turned away for wanting to pursue a counselor education versus clinical psychology. A had a rare few courses that challenged me academically and applied to life outside of the classroom. The worst part about attending Kent State was dealing with financial aid repeatedly throughout the semesters due to their many errors and lack of knowledge when dealing with adverse circumstances. I was often misdirected and discouraged by the financial aid advisors. I was often in contact with their upper management to find resolution.
This is an amazing course and professors. The curriculum is up-to-date and is very relevant to the current jobs in market. Course is more focussed on conceptual and practical learning which gave us a good hands-on on implementation of knowledge attained effectively. We did lot of good Projects and eventually all this helped us to finally get into our dream company. Career services office is also another great department with wonderful po
The Biology Program at Kent State is exceptional. The teachers all have the goal of preparing the kids for their future, and challenge them to think critically about the topic. The faculty of the Biology department is really personable, and are helpful when you want to talk to about your future plans.
Curriculum was in alignment with business today, covered all topics which were in high demand. Practical based learning. Great professors and facilities on campus. Most of the business courses are pretty good. Job fairs every semester are very helpful. Campus is very beautiful.
You are required to communicate with your assigned counselor every semester but when you try to schedule an appointment you can never get the assigned counselor and have to wait to schedule after a date the system allows. Another words, cant schedule appointment until after Tuesday. Im online now and want to schedule now not after Tuesday They bully you into opting to next semester for a class and hurry you instead of taking time to advice on graduating in the 4 years offered in the plan. Also, if you are trying to get a class and it is already full, you have to wait until next semester or it is only available in the fall. Im very disappointed in this school counseling and scheduling of classes.
Kent State University is an excellent University. The only problem is that funding was mainly allocated to fashion, nursing, and education students. STEM students had old, dangerous, faulty labs and equipment, and the faculty appeared to be more interested in their research then their teaching. I felt as if I could have received a better biochemistry experience elsewhere, but my overall college experience was excellent at Kent.
Kent State University's English program provided me with so much more than a simple degree or basic education. The program's teachers are active, engaging, knowledgeable, and extremely creative with their courses. In my last semester, Fall 2016, I had the opportunity to study Shakespeare and Jane Austen, side-by-side, in a course structured around the Folger Shakespeare Library's dual exhibit of both authors in Washington D.C. The course provided each student with the opportunity to learn about and from two of the most influential authors in the history of the English language. But it was more than just that, Professor C., who constructed and instructed the course, inspired each student to think critically about the topics each author presents, and did brilliantly in modernizing each studied work through hands on instruction and interpretation. I could go on and on about each course my English degree provided me, and the intellectual benefits of each, but a list of such would be exhaustive. Kent State University, as a whole, and my English degree in particular, has provided to my personal benefit more than I could have ever expected upon my enrollment in the Fall of 2012.
