Programs & Services
The Common Reading Program is designed to welcome and connect incoming students to the Kent State University academic community. It is our hope that reading the book will provide common ground for our new students to share with their peers.
A Kent State Peer Leader is an undergraduate student that assists with any or all of the Destination Kent State Programs, Kupita/Transiciones, EXCEL Living Learning Community, and/or Transfer Kent State.
Since 1968 the National Student Exchange (NSE) provides opportunities for undergraduate students to study for one semester or one academic year at another NSE member college or university. You can choose from more than 180 colleges and universities to meet your personal interests and academic needs. NSE campuses extend beyond the borders of the United States to include U.S. territories and Canadian Provinces.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an international program offered by the Academic Success Center that provides free, peer-facilitated group study sessions for certain large, historically difficult courses (30% D, F, and withdrawal rate).
Experiential learning can be viewed as a strategy to encourage students to practice using the knowledge and skills developed at Kent State to give back, engage, and support real needs within communities.
Undergraduate Research, scholarship, and creative Activities describe collaborations between students and faculty members in the sciences, arts, humanities, and social sciences. It is inquiry into an area or investigation that allows an undergraduate student to make a unique contribution (intellectual, original, or creative) to their field.
