Kent State University Graduate Reviews

16 reviews
I’m working on my second graduate degree from Kent State while I work there full-time. In both schools, I’ve greatly enjoyed my professors and the programs. There are some truly world-class faculty and I’m very pleased with my overall experience. The city of Kent is beautiful, with some great parks, restaurants and bars. Plus, it’s close to many other cities with stellar cultural attractions such as the The Cleveland Orchestra and the Cleveland Art Museum.

Get place to get a degree while not going into debt. I have been going here for 6 years now. All of the professors I have had have been great too. There is many places to eat on campus which is nice, also you feel safe being there too. The library is a great resource I recommend going there if you need any help getting information for a project. The library is also great for studying. The first floor of it has computers and is a little louder but if you go up to any of the other floors they are all very quiet and a good place to study.
I love Kent State because it is a very nice facility with a great community and professors. They have a lot of resources such as free tutoring, 24 hour library and on campus support to really help you be successful. The community is very diverse and friendly and they encourage campus activity. There are many pathways and walkways that make the campus very accessible and easy to navigate. Unfortunately I felt there wasn’t enough parking and I suffer from lupus which makes me photosensitive so I really had to come prepared to be outside. Also prices on tuition, food and textbooks are marked up which is expected, but not necessary. Overall, I was very pleased with my experience and I am looking to return for a Masters in Biostatistics.
