Kelli - 8/9/2014
Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2014
"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"

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

Tulsa Cagle - 8/6/2014
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2012
"For a older student leaving a small community college to further their education at Kent State the transition was harder then I thought it would be. I was originally in the Conservation department and did not feel welcomed by the professors there. After struggling through my first year I changed over to the Geography department and was treated like a human being and I did much better academically and socially. Having the right factually makes a huge difference in the learning environment of it's students and their ability to succeed. I am thankful to have been apart of the Geography Department and the Women's Studies Department at Kent State and urge any older student to give furthering their education a try. It might take a little searching to find the best department and academic path; but it is a path worth traveling."

Degree: Accounting

"The accounting program was challenging and the professors expected a lot. However, all the hard work paid off in the end with a job offer from a big 4 firm."

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013
"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."

"Tell us about your college experience.Great fit. Small campus, close to home where I lived.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?Anything more in demand. Probably pre-med/nursing.What advice can you offer other students?Get a degree that will get you a job! Be realistic. Talk to career services and be DIRECT: "Will X degree get me a job?" Find something you enjoy AND that will get you a job! Archaeology and translation are fun, but you can't get a job after you study them."
