Where is the best place to meet new people at Kent State?

  • At one of the thousands of events that happen on campus throughout the year. Your classes and student organizations are also great places to meet people! (Bruno Beidacki)
  • In dorms, classrooms and student organizations. (Amrita Datta)
  • International Student Mentors is a student organization made up of mainly international students. They organize cultural events and fun activities! I went to several of their events and had great experiences! (Lusi Cai)
  • In my opinion, student events hosted by CCI or any organization on campus would be the best place to meet new people because have a chance to talk with them and develop relationships. (Aierken “Subi” Subinuer)
  • For international students, Kent State International Mentors is a great organization to start with. (Kamulijiang “Kam” Bolati)
  • Kent State Welcome Week events. (Natasha Wolwacz Heinz)
  • Talk to people in class. I have made 80% of my friends on campus by talking to the people around me in class. Join a club or multiple clubs! I recommend trying out one club per semester that is not already an interest but sounds cool. You never know where you will find characters, but a club entitled “The League of Extraordinary Tabletops” sounds like a good place to start. Try not to limit yourself to the familiar. How else will you grow? (Sophia Avouris)
  • I made all of my friends in Olson Hall, the CCI living-learning community. It’s a great community of students. There are always amazing programs and opportunities to meet with CCI faculty, alumni and fellow students. My hall staff was always welcoming and supportive, and I loved living with people who had interests that were similar to mine. (Carrie George)
  • The Hub, student organizations, the Library, dorms, Franklin Hall (especially for School of Journalism and Mass Communication majors!) (Abigail Winternitz)
