What were some highlights of your first year? Were there offices or specific individuals that helped you during your transition?

My first semester at Kent was a bit of a learning curve for me; I had a hard time adjusting at first, but I am proud to say that I have acclimated well. As a nursing major, my first semester had to go very well (grade-wise), so I went to SI sessions and had a tutor for Anatomy and Physiology I and Modeling Algebra. These academic resources helped me study and figure out what ways I learn best. I also utilized the Counseling Center in White Hall to help me manage my anxiety and feelings of depression, and I am so thankful for the Counseling Center for helping me through a rough time in my life and helping me realize my strength and independence. I also take advantage of the recreational facilities here at Kent– I go to the gym about four times a week and it is a great stress reliever. I met my best friend at Kent on the second day on campus, at the Honors Meet and Greet Werq class at the rec, and she has helped me so much over the course of the year. Overall, my first semester at Kent helped me grow into the person I am now, a more organized, happier, and stronger person mentally and physically. I am very grateful for the resources Kent has.
