New Freshmen

Close relationships with the people around you bring love, meaning and support to your life. Most importantly, they deepen your feelings of self-worth, and with that you can be resilient through anything you encounter. If you're open to broadening and strengthening your connections to others and willing to be challenged and molded by those people, you'll find opportunities with every step you take. That's the first transformation you'll experience at Kent State University - where our relationship-driven environment and commitment to inspire and guide every student leads to incredible outcomes and serious impact on the world.
