Top Ten Things We NEED at Kent State Right Now!

Top Ten Things We Need at Kent State!

Oh, Kent State! It’s time to get hip to a few things. A few simple requests…

  1.  HEATED SIDEWALKS

It snows here — a lot. We’re tired of walking through Siberia to get to class on time! Winter lasts about five months in Kent, and in those five months we see about half of the student population bite it on some random sidewalk on the way to the Student Center. Heated sidewalks would melt away all of that ice and snow, and make life that much better during the long, dark days of winter.

  1. CHIPOTLE ON CAMPUS

burritoHaving Chipotle close to campus is nice, but we’re still paying out of pocket for the food. Lots us of have leftover meal plan money every semester — we can’t think of a better way to spend it than on a burrito bowl!

  1. FREE PRINTING

There have been rumors and there have been petitions. We choose to keep wishing!

  1. ZIP LINES FLASHLINES!

You read that right — we said ZIP lines! If heated sidewalks are out of the question, we suggest zip lines. Imagine it — fast, fun and easy transport from Dix Stadium to class in Nixson, and then to the KSC for lunch! Obviously, they’d be called “FLASH lines” because we don’t associate with anything “zip”-themed here!

  1. NEW BUILDINGS ON CAMPUS

Oh, wait — this is actually happening! Thanks to our amazing, generous Kent State donors, we have a bunch of new buildings poppin’ up all over the place. It’s pretty awesome what philanthropy can do for a university, isn’t it? (Go here to check out all the upcoming building plans!)

  1. JUICE BARS

How nice would it be to have a healthy, fresh, real-fruit smoothie available on campus? We love the one in the Rec – now please multiply!

  1. COFFEE CART

cafeWe already have our own food truck, so what about a coffee cart? Maybe one that travels around and makes it easy to get our much-needed caffeine kick early in the morning? Seeing that cart turn the corner when we’re running late might just save a life! You can even make it another Jazzman’s. Whatever you call it, let’s just get one already!

  1. FREE LAUNDRY

     9. BLACK SQUIRREL PETTING ZOO

How do we not have this already? We have the pets, let’s make the zoo! This could equal some serious stress relief during finals. President Warren, please add this to your strategic plan!

      10. AWESOME STUDENT ORG FOCUSED COMPLETELY ON PHILANTHROPY
