Firstly, I enjoy the campus. It is within 20mins from my home. It is a small campus and easy to navigate for this ole dog returning to finish her degree. I love the landscape. The green grass, the simple little trees, and the clean look makes me feel like the college cares about even the smallest details. The professors I have had the opportunity to learn from are all wise, kind, and entertaining. I have learned much from them and am inspired. I very much love this school and am glad this is where I will be obtaining my bachelors. The only thing I would change are the small children's desks. They do not flatter this middle age body I have obtained during the course of working hard to get where I am at. Besides the desks, I love this campus!

The staff are very helpful and the prices are very affordable. Their Study Abroad program is AMAZING! If that's something you've always wanted to do but always thought you couldn't afford, do it! It's sometimes even cheaper to study abroad than to stay in Canton.
I am currently enrolled at the Stark branch of Kent State University. I am currently a Freshman. The academics at this college has taught me a lot. The party scene is non-existent, since this is a branch campus, there are no dormitories. Which leads me to my next point: "the dormitories are non-existent." I have been to the campus, and it took me away about how breathtaking it was. The campus was so clean and pristine. The professors I've had were all incredibly nice and all cared for my success. We are currently doing online classes because of the COVID-19 situation. So I currently feel safe because I am at my house most of the time.
