KSU_KFUPM_ComparisonKent State University and King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals are two government supported universities. In this essay, I am going to compare the two universities and give you my opinion about which university is better.

KFUPM and KSU have some similarities. For example, both KSU and KFUPM are government supported universities that offer degrees in engineering and finance. KSU and KFUPM both have huge campuses that have a very similar style of buildings. In fact, it looks like the same architect may have designed the buildings. In addition, KFUPM and KSU both have sports teams that compete against other universities. KFUPM and KSU may have a couple of similarities, but they have many more differences than similarities. First of all, KFUPM is one of the best universities in the world, ranked in the top 2% of all universities worldwide, where KSU is only an average state university that does not have a worldwide ranking. KSU is located in the state of Ohio in the USA, while KFUPM is located in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. In addition, KSU offers degrees in most academic fields, whereas KFUPM offers degrees in only engineering, architecture, and finance. Finally, KSU and KFUPM have different housing arrangements for their students. Most of the students that attend KSU live off campus, while only 30% of its students live on campus in its dormitories. On the other hand, KFUPM is a residential campus where almost all of its faculty and students live on campus in housing provided by the university. In conclusion, I think that KFUPM is a much better universit y than KSU. Although KFUPM and KSU have similar campuses, KFUPM has a superior reputation as a university. I would advise anyone considering studying at these two universities that KFUPM is the better choice. A degree from KFUPM would be a better investment for your future.
