Kent's 1200 acres includes 13 playing fields, a cross-country running course in Macedonia Valley, a piece of the Appalachian Trail and a stretch of the Housatonic River. Basically, it's big and beautiful and it lets you do a lot of fun and interesting things.
But, more important than how big it is, is how small it is. All the main buildings and facilities share a single square mile of campus. This makes getting from class to class much easier as you work through your daily schedule. It makes it simple to get to your job, or to lunch, and a breeze to participate in your clubs. And the town of Kent is just a five-minute walk away.
But while you'll find that working, studying and living on Kent's campus is all drawn together physically, it's even closer emotionally. In fact, you'll find your spiritual life and community service to be vital parts of the Kent experience. Or maybe it's life experience. Because as you learn and grow, get ready for college and become a leader, you'll see how important humanity is. When you leave Kent and look back on your experience, the thing you’ll remember most—more than the action-packed weekends is the people you met, how well you knew them, and how well they knew and supported you, and the fun you had together.
