I believe Kent State is  constantly pushing the boundaries and taking on bold initiatives to provide students with experiences that will transform their lives toward having a successful future.

Kent State has provided me with immeasurable resources to learn and grow as a professional in the past five years.

There is a strong sense of collaboration across campus, and I feel like the work I do has a purpose.
