With more than 1,000 undergrads and hundreds of graduate students, there is no typical JMC student.

Some of our students are “family firsts” – the first person in their families to attend college. Some are second-, third- or fourth-generation Kent Staters. Some love film, others express themselves with photography. Some are passionate about strategic communication – engaging the public, persuading, motivating, transforming. The diversity of our student body makes our School stronger and more successful.

Our students are born storytellers … aspiring professionals with big plans for the future … cool, creative types who are ready to launch.

Independent. Innovative. Downright interesting. JMC students live up to these qualities and more. That’s why you belong here.
