  • Jose Calderon is a student living in Eastway
  • At first, I was worried that I wouldn't get along with the other residents on my floor, but after just a few hours, I can say that I met some of the greatest people. Interestingly enough, most of them were business majors like myself. It was nice seeing many familiar faces in the classroom, it made the college transition easier. Eastway is and always will be my favorite hall. You could always catch the squad in the Game Center or the Café. Living in Allyn provided me with some of the greatest experiences and lifelong friendships.

  • Being involved with Residence Services has been the best experience I have had during my college career. When I was inducted into the National Residence Hall Honorary, I had this strange sense that I was joining something larger than life. And I had the same sense when I became a resident assistant. From helping at events to writing "Of the Months" (OTMs), my leadership involvement and experience with Residence Services has challenged and engaged me. I cannot begin to list the benefits of my experiences and thank all of those who helped me get to where I am today.

  • Getting involved in residential community activities, participating in universitywide events, as well as building up and cherishing individual friendships may be a good means not only to balance the daily pursuit of academic achievements, but also to contribute to the development of our personalities. Being part of the Kent State community and playing a certain role in it also may be the final dress rehearsal for what comes after college. But besides all this, there is always a lot of fun happening on campus.
