Keene State College Reviews

All Categories
Keene State College is a scenic school located in Keene Valley, in southern New Hampshire. The leaves are always golden in the fall and the regular breeze that brushes through campus is refreshing, even on winter days. The professors here are dedicated to the success of their students, and they frequently make themselves available to any and all who need extra help. The food here at Keene is superior to most other campus' in New Hampshire. The dining staff are always looking for suggestions to improve the overall experience of those who come to eat here. The town of Keene is a safe atmosphere that is welcoming to travelers, residents, and students. All in all, Keene is not just a college, it's home.
Review Keene State College
Keene State College, like many colleges, is what YOU make of it. Most of the professors that I have encountered have been dedicated to their students and love their jobs. If you want to party, you can party. If you want to be involved on campus in clubs or Greek life, you can be. If you want to study your butt of and be given opportunities from your professors, you can do that too. Keene State has been a great experience for me thus far and I would recommend this school to anyone.
What I like about Keene State is how small it is. The student to teacher ratio is small so students can connect or get 1-on-1 attention that they might need. It also has a lot of clubs and organizations. There are sports teams, classes in the gym, student organizations, Greek life, etc. All of the academic buildings have been renovated and are well maintained as well. The library hours are very flexible and printing is FREE.
