Deciding to attend Kent State University at a Columbiana County campus may be one of the wisest decisions you ever made. Your obvious goal may be to graduate and land that dream job – which I sincerely hope you do – but I challenge you to embrace your time at Kent State and make the most of every opportunity presented to you.
We offer a variety of courses and degree programs taught by experienced and highly-credentialed faculty. Our administration, faculty and staff make it their mission to not only challenge and prepare you for that career, but to also support you on that journey. We understand that many of you juggle the responsibilities of being a student, having a job and raising a family. We want to help make it possible for you to succeed.
I encourage you to get involved with clubs and campus life, too. Make the most of your time on our campus and embrace the experience. We receive fantastic community support and there are always opportunities for our students to network with business leaders and area professionals. Take advantage of these opportunities. It is important to give back to a community that gives so much to us.
Thank you for making Kent State East Liverpool or Kent State Salem your choice for continuing your education. When you are ready to graduate, I sincerely hope you choose to walk across the stage to receive your diploma. It's an honor you will have earned, and it will be an honor to share that moment with you.
