Where are the best places to hang out with friends on campus?

  • Manchester and Taylor Fields, during sunny days, and the Kent Student Center when it’s cold outside. (Bruno Beidacki)
  • The field by Taylor Hall, Kent Student Center, Rosie’s (on campus, in Tri-Towers). (Amrita Datta)
  • The library would be a nice place to go for group discussions. As for fun, I would recommend Kent State’s Rec Center. I’ve never tried the rock climbing there, but I heard it’s fun! (Lusi Cai)
  • I usually hang out in the Kent Student Center or Jazzman’s, which is in the basement of the Student Center, because I can get coffee with friends and sit around the table and chat. (Aierken “Subi” Subinuer)
  • The basement of the Kent Student Center is fun. (Kamulijiang “Kam” Bolati)
  • The Hub [in Kent Student Center]. (Natasha Wolwacz Heinz)
  • Take a blanket and go to Victory Field by Taylor Hall. I know it sounds cheesy, but sun and friends can solve a lot of the stress and worries that college causes. Or, the fountain by the field by Eastway and the Student Center. I go there at night and look at the stars and listen to the water. It is definitely my favorite place on campus. (Sophia Avouris)
  • When the weather is nice, I like hanging out with friends in the field in front of Taylor Hall. It’s a good place to spread out a blanket and relax for a little while. For the 90% of the year when the weather isn’t nice, my friends and I usually grab coffee at the Jazzman’s in the basement of the Student Center and hang out there for a while. (Carrie George)
  • Downtown restaurants, the Hub, The Library, the CUE [Center for Undergraduate Excellence, 975 Lefton Esplanade, near Olson Hall]. (Abigail Winternitz)
