Kent State University - Salem Reviews

Kent Salem is a very small school. They need to make outlets more available to charge student's laptops with, they are very hard to find and usually taken. More quiet areas should be available since you're pretty much limited to the library (only quiet area) or the main lounge/lobby, which is always full of loud people screaming to their friends. It's hard to get any work done since it's usually loud.

I like KSU Salem a lot. Classes are small and professors are very accessible to students. Most classes I took, the professors really seemed to care about students and were knowledgeable about the subjects they were teaching. My main complaint is that they lack certain classes I would like to take, so I have to switch to another branch of KSU. Overall though, I had a great experiemce at this campus.
I visited Kent State University - Salem and I fell in love. It had such a nice building and it is a good distance away without being too far. It offers the major that I wish to do, which is Early Childhood Education. Im very excited to possibly attend this university in the fall. There is no downfalls that I have noticed since my interest in this college began.
