"I chose Kent State because they have the best program available for my major. I want to go to the Peace Corps after school and this was the only school on my list with a Global Health program and a lot of study-abroad opportunities. I’ve actually already studied abroad two times during my sophomore year!"

"As flight students, we all end up looking at a lot of the same schools around the country. But, when I came to Kent State, I felt like it had everything I needed. Kent State has definitely equipped me with everything I need to enjoy my experience while I’m here, but also be prepared for the future."

"It feels really good to know that I am about to accomplish something that no one else in my family has accomplished before. I was an exploratory student and that program really geared me to take different classes to help me figure out what I liked and help push me in the right direction."
