First Year

  • Meet with your academic advisor prior to the start of your first semester to discuss your math and science placement, as well as building your first semester schedule. This discussion should occur at Destination Kent State. If you do not participate in this program, you will want to schedule a separate appointment.
  • Focus on your grades; seek out tutoring or supplemental instruction when needed
  • Join clubs and organizations on campus
  • Attend any introductory pre-health or pre-medicine workshops or events held by departments
