  • Go take a walk downtown, sit by the river and read, hike in Franklin Mills (several hiking spots near Kent), have coffee at Scribbles Coffee Co.(off campus at 237 N. Water St. in Kent. (Amrita Datta)
  • Hiking at Cuyahoga Falls trails. Go for a one-day trip to nearby places, like Put-in- Bay and Columbus. (Lusi Cai)

  • Go to the Kent Farmer’s Market [Haymaker Market, Franklin Ave. between Main and Summit St. in Kent on Saturdays between May and October] and go out at night. (Natasha Wolwacz Heinz)
  • Go to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Visit the CLE [Cleveland]: the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Art Museum, Science Museum, West Side Market or Ohio City in general. Go to an Akron Rubber Ducks baseball game (Cleveland Indians’ minor league team). Akron has a lot of food festivals, look up when they are. Sleep. Volunteer-- most dorms have some partnership with a local charity and organize trips every weekend to go and help out.  They will not turn down volunteers. And it is a great way to meet people (Sophia Avouris)
