Creating a Brighter Future – Meet the Class of 2025

Kent State’s Class of 2025 stands tall – more than 3,982 stories tall. Each of our new, first-year students offers a unique and engaging story.

These students come to Kent State from 39 U.S. states and Puerto Rico. This class of first-year students also includes students from 22 countries around the world.

The average GPA of these students is an all-time high of 3.50. 14% of Kent State’s Class of 2025 are in the Honors College – which also sets a record as the largest incoming group. Nearly three in 10 students are the first in their families to attend college.

We asked a few members of The Class of 2025 to share their stories with us. We asked why they chose to come to Kent State, who helped them with that decision, what they’re excited about now that they’re on campus and what their dream job would be after graduation. We also asked them: if they could send a message to themselves in 2025, what would they say?
