Kent State University - Salem Reviews

I have attended two other universities and two other colleges in different states previously so compared to those, Kent State's regional campus in Salem OH is relatively mediocre. I have yet to be impressed by a professor and I am currently taking pre-reqs for my major so my classes have been rather dull. Some perks of going to a small campus are FREE parking and a very chill ambience, never too crowded so perfect for getting hw done! Also, considering it's an older campus it's very well maintained. Moreover, they have invested their time in supporting students' mental health and safety via an abundance of flyers for support services and consistent security--much appreciated!

I recently transferred to the Salem campus and am loving my experience! The staff and other students are so welcoming and friendly. The small class sizes allow me to interact with my professors to make sure I fully understand all material. I also like the new additions, such as the food court and learning column!
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.
