i've taken a couple of classes at kent state, while doing post-secondary (still in high school). there are some definate high points and low points. if you want to major in architecture, fashion design, or nursing...education too.
if the school newspaper is any reflection of the journalism department, then don't even bother. the newspaper is very poorly written. our high school has produced better papers.
i also found the course selection in the english department to be lacking and wouldn't reccommend going here for english either.
i, luckily, have had many good professors. if you can get into the honors program...do it! you'll get professors and smaller class sizes when other people might get a TA who can't speak english. in the larger classes, it's also very difficult to get to know anyone.
i used to love kent state. my dad worked there and i had grown up on campus and really liked the general atmosphere. however, right now they are in the middle of some major problems. there's massive updating and modernizing going on. while it was severely in need of this, they also destroyed my favorite spots on campus, such as the much beloved candy counter, which is now a health food type place. *sigh* also, the old buildings that helped bring the campus character, instead of the ugly brown brick buildings, are being modernized and they've ruined much of the character in them...such as the addition to the auditorium.
this "modernization" is also going on in the restructuring of staff and stuff...and they are right in the middle of it. in other words, people getting switched around in job positions, people getting laid off, and people that are so confused by what's going on they don't know what they're doing. basically, you are going to get your share of red tape trying to deal with this *new and improved* system.
for most majors...i'd suggest looking into some alternative schools. ksu isn't bad...it's just very very average in a lot of areas...and for those areas that aren't then i guess you should be going here!
