The atmosphere of Kent State Stark campus is perfect for new college students who want to get the quality education of a large university with a community college feel. There are a variety of courses available that lead to both Associate and Bachelor degrees offered at the Stark Campus. I appreciated the flexibility of class scheduling and also having the opportunity to transfer to the main campus in Kent, Ohio to complete my studies.
