Advantages of EXCEL and Lake Hall


Within the EXCEL Community, our EXCEL staff, hall staff and students all have success in mind. We believe our EXCEL students can explore career options, declare a major, transition to Kent State, perform well academically, connect to campus, make friends, take on leadership positions and achieve all of the things successful students can do. All of our programs, events and course offerings follow these traits as we work with our EXCEL students. We understand that students are looking for academic, professional and social success on campus and we work to provide that to all of our students. By joining the EXCEL Community, you show that you’re committed to a positive and successful first year at Kent State!
