"I chose the General Studies degree and am very pleased with this decision. This allowed for me to tailor my degree to my career focus. At the same time as earning my Bachelors, I also earned a Certificate of Nonprofit Management. I interned in Grants Management to fulfill one of the course requirements and now am employed full time as a Grants Manager. I found the instructors to be helpful and knowledgeable."

"The M.Arch program at Kent State University is well-reputed in the area, and the faculty are all very wonderful and helpful with their student's academic progress. Transportation on campus is almost non-existent. As a student who cannot afford a car, it is very difficult to find transportation to events and interviews. Bus lines to main cities are impossible to schedule into a working day. The academic value of attending Kent State is very good, but the expense of living in the area is a struggle for students."

"While this program is excellent overall, there is little support from the campus given to the English program. Much of the equipment is out of date, and the buildings are rather antiquated. Nevertheless, there is quality education being provided here in spite of various drawbacks."

"The pros of my graduate program: the department is very pluralistic, professors go out of their way to help you succeed, and the course material is varied. The cons: no summer funding, not as much teaching experience as I would like (ohio state law prohibits this), and not as much diversity as I would like."

"Pros are that there's a really strong network and lots of opportunities for hands-on work and research, especially abroad. Big con is the inconsistency in education, with some professors being food and others horrible."

"Kent State's Counseling program is full of many passionate and genuine professors that will work hard to guide you into the field! The main courses provide a great overview of the material needed, and the practical courses teach you the skills necessary to become a successful counselor. However, I would enjoy the opportunity to have a wider range of speciality options within the program. The clinic on campus provides a great way to get hands-on experience in the field, and also give back to the community in which you are earning your education!"

"KSUCPM has been fantastic since I have been here. From day 1 I felt right at home with the rest of the students. The administrative staff really played a big role in helping me decide to come to Podiatry school here. The cadaver is amazing and the rest of the building is very nice. Some of the older faculty are not as up to date with newer technology, and the weight room is also a little outdated but other than that i love it here!"

"Kent State University has a wide range of Graduate Assistantships along with faculty that work hard to prepare you for the work force. The social climate in Kent is not prevalent because the area is very small. Kent is, however, located close to major cities allowing students to travel. The Network of graduates from this program is amazing and the job placement rate is over 90%."

"A big issue is the consistency of instruction: some instructors, unsurprisingly, are amazing while others are far from good. It is a small, closely-knit program with a very positive and collegial atmosphere, lots of opportunities to do some high-caliber research, and decent funding; however, the location is far from ideal for many reasons."

"Kent is a highly desirable campus d/t it's location. Grad. school is a big undertaking, there are some courses that are not available on-line, it would be helpful to have these resource at regional satellite campus locations. Access to library resources and on-line assistance are available."
