What I Love About Kent State
The Kent State University campus community has an unfaltering commitment to serving the public good. Many selfless students, faculty and staff reach out to others by humbling acts of kindness and by extraordinary measures. Whether it is contributing to our local United Way; raising thousands of dollars for the Haiti relief fund; working at soup kitchens; or even taking alternative spring break trips, our Kent State community is dedicated to civic involvement and continued social change! 

Fun Fact
I have two dogs, Olive and Maggie and I compete in Frisbee competitions with them. If you have the time, I could talk your ear off about them!

Favorite On-Campus Food
The always changing lunch menu at the Kent Market
