Living in the Community

Kent State students learn as part of a diverse student body, including a large international student population. Yet, more than 45 percent of classes have fewer than 20 students. Whatever interests students have, they can pursue them at Kent State — from more than 300 clubs and organizations; 18 NCAA Division I teams; a vibrant visual and performing arts community; to centers devoted to academic success and career services. Students live in residence halls with all the comforts of home, including living-learning communities that focus on personal and academic interests. Students can take advantage of education-abroad opportunities that will internationalize their degree and enhance their personal growth. As part of the Kent State community, students can explore their interests and uncover their potential.
