Stopher-Johnson Honors Complex
The Stopher-Johnson Complex, located in the historic heart of the Kent campus, houses the Honors College administrative offices and living-learning community.
Rebuilt from the ground-up, Stopher and Johnson Halls were constructed in the footprint of the original buildings in order to preserve the historic May 4th site.
The complex occupies a prime location, along the pedestrian esplanade and close to the Kent Student Center and University Library. Honors College administrative offices, an art gallery, study lounges, a library/lounge- all with wireless Internet access, are also located in the complex.
The Stopher-Johnson Complex is home to the the Honors College Living-Learning Community. A diverse academic and social community, students are provided with the opportunity to live and learn together in an atmosphere dedicated to holistic learning.
Students who reside in Stopher and Johnson Halls will be exposed to opportunities unique to students who strive for academic success, participate in leadership opportunities along with other top students, develop friendships through common goals, courses, and conversation, and be exposed to faculty and staff to enhance their academic experience at Kent State University.
The halls include classrooms that enable the college to offer most sections of the required freshman sequence, Freshman Honors Colloquium I & II, along with a number of other Honors classes on site.
Honors College Library
The Honors College Library is a place where you can come to study, read, and work in a quiet, relaxing environment. We have a large collection of books containing works from the arts and humanities as well as several reference materials.
The library is also home to every Senior Honors Thesis/Project as well as other Honors portfolio projects that have been completed by Honors students dating back to the 1930s. Students have access to three computers and a printer (printing is free, but students must provide their own paper to print).
