Kent State University Review
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love Kent State University. The communication program at Kent is amazing, and you can tell the professors genuinely care about your education and your success. I have learned so much, academically as well as socially, through my time at Kent, and cannot wait to go back this Fall!

I really enjoying being at Kent state and It is definitely my place. The classes are great and I have yet to have any serious issues with anything on the university. I really love the atmosphere of campus and all the opportunities it has provided me. If something were to be improved I would have to say parking.

I love how Kent State combines a normal college experience with a smaller arts school and excellent program
