Kent State University Reviews
Review Kent State University
I have not yet had just a "bad" professor. They all seem super knowledgable with great credentials and history in the subject they are teaching on; even for GenEds. I took a Media/Journalism entry level class and the professor had worked for a newspaper and a recording company for years! He worked with Madonna, Michael Jackson, and some big name actors too. I am also a dance minor and one of my modern teachers who teaches the May O'Donnel technique which is a super old technique actually learned it from May herself. Every class is covered by someone who was and still may be very active in the field. They are full of connections and just good advice.
I love going to Kent state, I am duel majoring with three minors and my advisers have worked out a plan to have me still graduating on time! The dorms are large and very clean, the food is pretty amazing, and the classes are lots of fun. The only thing that bothers me is that our meal plans do not work in the hub (the main dinning establishment) between 11am-2pm so that commuters can get in for lunch without a huge crowd.
I have had a wonderful experience at Kent State and would recommend it to many students! It is the prefect balance between large state college experience but it has never seemed overwhelming to me. Downtown Kent is a great place to hang out, grab food, or hit up the bars as well. There is plenty of things to do there and I really enjoy being close to Akron, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
