I am very excited to be on this campus. Not only is the campus very liberal but so are the programs, and the Kent core I think is a really great thing that is required because I think everyone should have to be exposed to classes that are out of their major and comfort zone

I have not yet looked into career services since I am only a junior, but Kent was very helpful with telling me where the resources are for getting internships.

The career service is always hosting events, fairs, and you can even schedule personal meetings, which are nice to layout all your options in deciding what career path to go into.
