Favorite thing about Kent State University: Kent State University is great in my opinion. You can easily find your niche and discover other passions that are accessible to you on campus. The faculty members are supportive of students academically, personally, and spiritually.

Advice to Students: My best advice for students is to not be afraid of change. Follow this quote by Lisa Brooks, "I've learned that things change, people change, and it doesn't mean you forget the past or try to cover it up. It simply means that you move on and treasure the memories. Letting go doesn't mean giving up... It means accepting some things weren't meant to be."
