Tips for a Successful Semester: Finding the Right Balance

Your peers, as well as Kent State's faculty and staff, realize that leaving home is an exciting, yet nerve-wracking experience. As a diverse, welcoming community, we know that we can work together to navigate these unchartered waters to create a fulfilling experience.
