All the professors are amazing! Each one of them has their own unique personality and are really knowledgeable in their field of study. I have enjoyed all of my professors and their classes because of this.
Also, if you are not interested in on campus courses, the college offers a huge variety of online courses. They have one of the largest selections that I have seen!
The college also works really well with Kent State University and The University of Akron if you want to transfer your classes to either one of them to continue your education.

Stark is a great school with amazing administration. I've never had a problem that they wouldn't help me fix. Everyone there is kind, caring, and comforting. They're really big on mental health, too! I would recommend going here if you want a comfortable and enriching environment!
My favorite thing about going to State State College is that the classes are small and the campus is easy and convenient. Another extremely nice thing is that the students are all age so those who are getting a later start on education do not feel out of place! The campus' are small and very easy to navigate. The classes are very personal and the instructors are always willing to help. The material is not overwhelming, even in the summer for the shortened semester, the material was easy enough to understand without getting behind.
I would like to see change by, the satellite center coordinators held accountable. One in-particular was never there and when we asked for assistance it was always a burden or just wouldn't help get the help, it's important for us to have the help and support we need at our centers too.
