Kent State Unviersity, Sophomore

Why did you choose your school and what makes it better than the rest?

I would be lying if I said that Kent State was originally my first choice dream school. I grew up in a family of Kent alum and was determined to start school in a brand new environment and definitely somewhere further than 1 hour from my parents being that I am from Cleveland. However, life has a funny way of working, and my future was destined for Kent. I quickly fell in love with the University and everything it had to offer for my future career. The fashion school at Kent is absolutely incredible (#3 in the nation)! The study abroad experiences offered at Kent promise that we will stand out to future employers in addition to encouraging us to grow culturally while we travel to unfamiliar places and find ourselves. I currently live in my sorority house and love living with 32 girls, as hectic as it may sound!

What kind of activities are you involved in? (sorority, theatre, clubs, etc)
