What makes Kent State the "Golden Location"? We have everything you need on campus, downtown or a short drive away! On-campus, you'll stay busy swimming, climbing, ice skating and more with @ksurecwell; competing in Smash Bros tournaments; or attending 1,000+ on-campus events, including Flashes D1 athletics! In downtown Kent, you can hit up a locally-owned coffee shop and do some shopping before kayaking the Cuyahoga River, and be back in time for some live music at the Kent Stage or an event in the plaza in the evening. Within driving distance of Kent, you've got hiking, horseback riding and bouldering in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park; concerts, shows, museums and sporting events in Akron and Cleveland; and don't forget the Football Hall of Fame in Canton!
