LIKES MOST ABOUT KENT STATE UNIVERSITY:

I love the school spirit and pride that students and alumni have in their alma mater. My favorite place on campus is the Beck Family Memorial Garden located behind Merrill Hall in the “Behind the Brain Plaza,” which has a special meaning because it honors my family members who have graduated from Kent State University and Kent State Normal College. My wife and I were married there in 2008.

Kent State University has a plethora of academic offerings and tremendous support and resources for students to be successful and reach their goals. I enjoy being a part of Kent State University, knowing that our faculty and staff care for and contribute to the success of our students. Having grown up in Kent and as a proud Kent State graduate, I am grateful to be a part of a university that has overcome adversity, while embracing diversity. Kent State has given me so much, and it feels good to give something in return.
