What are the best sights on campus?

  • Taylor field (near Taylor Hall) for its history, front campus (for its beauty and The Rock), and The Wick Poetry Center (for its cultural value). (Bruno Beidacki)
  • Kent Student Center (by the K), Taylor Hall and the general area near front campus.(Amrita Datta)
  • I would recommend the Fashion Library (131 Rockwell Hall). I heard they have Vogue magazines from the 1920s. (Lusi Cai)
  • The May 4 Visitors Center, the Library and International Student and Scholar Services [located in Van Campen Hall]. (Aierken “Subi” Subinuer)
  • Rec Center and outside of Taylor Hall. (Kamulijiang “Kam” Bolati)
  • The library, the May 4 Memorial, The Hub. (Natasha Wolwacz Heinz)
  • The top floor of the library, McGilvrey Hall (the hallways are lined with display cases with minerals, fossils, and all sorts of beautiful geological goodness) and the May 4 memorial garden (near Taylor Hall) in early spring. There are daffodils carpeting [the ground] under the trees on the hill and it never fails to make me smile. In later spring, there is a walkway with lilac bushes that smells like heaven and doesn’t feel like campus at all. (Sophia Avouris)
  • My favorite place to see on campus is the Liquid Crystal Institute [1425 Lefton Esplanade].They have beautiful sculptures that light up and change colors at night. I also love the Wick Poetry Center [across from Franklin Hall]. It is a cute and cozy house close to downtown Kent (conveniently located on the Lefton Esplanade). Not only do they host great talks and programs, but it is also a comfy place to sit and read a book. Across the esplanade from the Wick Poetry Center is the Architecture Building. This is the prettiest building on campus. Even if you aren’t an architecture student, don’t be afraid to walk through and check it out. (Carrie George)
  • The Hub [Student Center]), the "K" [Risman Plaza], the May 4 Visitors Center and the Kent State Museum/Fashion School. (Abigail Winternitz)
