The Kent State University Florence Center is Kent State University’s flagship study abroad and international center. For nearly 50 years, the Florence Center has welcomed students, faculty, staff, and its community to experience Kent State’s exceptional education and Florence’s cultural and historical majesties. Today, Florence is home to over 800 students a year and as such is the largest American program in Florence.
Studying abroad is an incredibly valuable, life changing experience.
At the College of Arts & Sciences, we strongly recommend that all of our students study abroad at least once during their time at Kent State University.
