I have visited Keene State College several times so far in my career of music. I am a resident of Keene, NH, and I have always really enjoyed getting to know the professors there, especially in the music department, and I love getting to know all of the students as well.
the campus is gorgeous and I love the atmosphere the professors give and people will randomly say high if you are just walking down the main walk way, it always makes me smile.
I have been a student here for three years, I love Keene I couldn't imagine going to school any where else. However Keene doesn't offer as many classes as other schools do so class options so class registration time is very stressful.

I love the welcoming environment of Keene State, I feel at home and everyone is so nice and accepting. There’s almost always some event to do. As a freshman, it was a hard adjustment but Keene made it so easy.
From what I have experienced so far from orientation and living very close to, or in Keene for the past 10 or so years now, I love it. The town is great, many things to see and places to eat. The college feels like a completely different place with so many kind and welcoming people. As far as academics go I am not sure yet, but from people I know who have gone here, including my father, it is a great school.
KSC is a wonderful, tightly-knit campus. As a theatre major you have a very tight knit family, and get to know all of your professors very well. I've loved my time there so far, and appreciate the colleges acceptance of anyone who steps on campus.
Perfect size, wide variety of courses, diverse student body. The food is mediocre and snow plowing is almost non existent.
This school is pretty bad definitely grind and try and transfer out. Won’t get anywhere with a degree from here. Party school. If u want to party than come here because Keene and Plymouth state are the top two party schools I can think of. Which is the only legitimate top 5 classification this school has. Which for some will be for it but is definitely a bad school.
Proud Greek life alum! If there was one thing that positively changed my college experience that would be it; highly encourage joining!
At first Kenne was great, but there were many things that made it easily horrible. First, some professors just don't want to help you learn. My dorming situation was the worst factor. I couldn't change my room (move out), the fire alarm went off everyday, I got charged for damage that I didn't do. I was very lonely at Keene, made no friends. And the food I got easily tired of and ate the same things.
Keene State College is a community with great professors. Everyone here is willing to help and you have a good amount of support . I have met some of my best friends here. I have lived in campus for 2 years and have loved both dorms I had. While the food could be better the Dining Commons is always open to suggestions and is willing to make changes the students want. This is a community that cherishes student involvement and students opinions.
I attended keene, and am now looking to transfer. my curriculum keeps changing constantly causing me to repeat classes i don't need. i also had an issue where i was being harassed on campus and campus safety did nothing.
Keene state college is a very close knit community. The Classes present challenge, however, the majority of professors are encouraging and very open to assisting students whenever help is needed. At keene, you're not just a number, you're a student with a name and you're able to make connections with professors and build professional relationships along the way.
Dorms were amazing and food was the best I've ever had. I learned so much there and the teachers are very attentive to each and every one of the students' needs. It was affordable and I will be recommending this school to everyone I know.
I have throughly enjoyed all the time I'vev spent at Keene and I would reccomend it to anyone who is interested in a 4 year degree with a liberal arts college!
Keene State College has a few good majors including Safety & Engineering, Health & Exercise Science, Music, Film, Holocaust & Genocide Studies, and Journalism. Many of the other majors are either understaffed, underfunded, or simply have inept professors teaching the classes. There are usually a few good professors in each department, however, students have to fight for a spot to get into their classes.
Very well and pretty location. Has a lot of good students and professors who are willing to help with any situation. Overall it is a great school that has very well kept campus and buildings.

I had a very good experience exploring the school before I actually attend Keene state college. The staff was very helpful with my situation on payment with the military gi bill being unable to pay for the fee until I am in 3 years in. I am truly excited to be able to attend Keene state college for psychology. I wish I didn't need to wait so long but unfortunately I need to. I want to get started and move on with my life and Keene state college is going to help me do exactly that. For the past few years since I've been in the military, I feel like my life has been put on hold. Unable to do much to progress my future. That's what college is for in my opinion.
I've loved KSC since I began my education there as a theatre & dance major, but I'm only on my second semester as a freshman and the school just isn't for me. The people, environment, food, classes, and professors are very nice but the school, for some reason, depressed me so much. I'm transferring out of this school after this semester due to this. The theatre department is run SOLELY on favoritism so if you're not one of their favorites- forget it. You won't have a good time. I do love the environment and people, however. Downtown Keene is very pretty but then you have to travel 60 or more miles to reach anywhere urban.
All in all, the school is nice and they had a lot of fun events at first. The classes never challenged me but I became stressed and depressed for no reason just by being there. Personally, the school was not for me unfortunately.
Keene State College is accepting of students from all walks of life. There is something for everyone at Keene State College from majors to clubs and organizations. It is the only college in the country that offers a degree program in Holocaust and Genocide Studies.
If you're an eco-freako the Keene State is for you! They divest in companies that do not pollute the environment, practice sustainable living in dorms and class buildings.
Keene State College is a small college. Teachers here want to build individualized relationships with their students so students will get the most out of their college experience. Students also have the opportunity to get involved in community work through their classes.
