    Tips for prospective students

    Go to your professors and talk to them. let them know that you really want to succeed in class. They will try their hardest to make sure you do. Carry a planner or keep a calendar in your room or do both like me because there are so many things you must do each week!! Time management is the key!! Make time for yourself too!!

    Bang for the buck

    Definitely yes!!! The campus is beautiful. The housing is wonderful on and off campus depending on where you live you can have your own bedroom and bathroom (I recommend University Village) and the cafeteria is great! They have fast food, Chinese, southern, Italian, cultural, salads, steak, and its buffet style.

    Am enjoying being here

    Kennesaw is like a huge family. We all will help you with anything you need help with. They have centers for writing, math, science, adult learning, and international students. The people here are really nice and most are respectful.

    Am learning a lot

    There are bad teachers but there are more good ones. Just look on ratemyprofessor.com or pic a prof. I have gotten all As and Bs in my classes and I'm a junior. Lots of effort is required!!! My teachers this semester are really funny but brilliant!

    Great for these types of students

    I have three roommates and all four of us range from majors like art to biochemistry to young childhood education. All types of students fit in great here. There is a good bit of homework, but it's mostly online with help on the problems. So it's not too terribly bad.

    Tips for prospective students

    The best thing to do would be to live on campus and get the unlimited meal plan. This makes everything very easy for a freshmen, plus it saves a lot of money. Also, it'd be great to bring a bike. It is a rather large campus.

    Bang for the buck

    The school has a relatively low tuition cost and great pricing for dorms. These dorms can be on the cheap side or on the expensive side. Even the cheap ones, I live in the cheapest dorms, are amazing. They are just like an apartment. The cost for books is great too because i paid less than $500 for this semesters books, and i should get most of it back at the end of the semester.

    Am enjoying being here

    The social life in Kennesaw is so friendly. Everyone has a place where they can feel wanted and are invited to. There are a lot of Christian groups around campus that would love to help anyone make friends. There are also several nice sororities and fraternities to join.

    Am learning a lot

    The classes here are not overwhelming, but they are challenging and fun. The teachers I have had are very good and I understand the material.

    -Great for students that love to be active and have fun with campus clubs or activities. -Someone who is open to the whole college experience. -A students who does not mind to be hands on and self seeking. - A student who likes a fast growing community, because KSU grows day by day to improve for their students. -And also someone with OWL PRIDE!

    Tips for prospective students

    Tips: 1. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE! 2. TRY TO JOIN A CLUB OR VOLUNTEER! 3. GO TO CLASS 4. PICK A MAJOR YOU WILL ENJOY 5. ENJOY COLLEGE BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST 4 YEARS OF YOUR LIFE:)

    Bang for the buck

    Because Kennesaw is not as popular as UGA or GA TECH, the tuition and extra expenses are not as expensive. Which is what I appreciated more as my first year at KSU came to a close. I am really glad I did not spend the extra 3000(just a guess) dollars to go out of state. Going to Kennesaw saved my family and myself a lot of money.

    Am enjoying being here

    I thought my life was over when I did not have enough money to go to the out of state school I got accepted into and had to go to Kennesaw, BUT I am eating my words up. I love it here. The atmosphere is amazing. Everyone is super friendly. I have met a lot of people and grown in my social horizon. At KSU there are a lot of thing you can do around campus, there is always some kind of event going on. There is also a lot of volunteer opportunities here as well. KSU even has sororities and fraternities!!

    Am learning a lot

    I love KSU! Most of the professors I have had were really great but not everything is perfect, there can be professors that are challenging. I have learned not to procrastinate and be a well rounded student through this school. High school and college are two different ball games. If you use ratemyprofessor.com the reviews will help you along the way in making your decision on which class to take. The professors here really like to teach and even though you are in a class of 200 they really try to listen. This semester one of my professors read every email and replied even in a class of 300 students right away, he actually cared that I cared to get a good grade.

    KSU is a great school for anyone, but the Coles College of Business is especially revered, as is the Wellstar School of Nursing (which has a brand new building).

    Tips for prospective students

    The best tip is to get involved! College is what you make it, and KSU has several opportunities, including an active Greek life, a variety of performance groups (a storytelling troupe, an improv society, multiple plays), and an excellent student media program (The Sentinel newspaper, Owl Radio, Share Art & Literary Magazine, Talon Magazine, New Media Group). I also recommend taking advantage of the free group exercise classes offered in the Wellness Center.

    Bang for the buck

    Living on campus will likely be more expensive than getting an apartment or renting a room in a house, but otherwise, KSU is a good deal, especially if you are a HOPE scholar. The fees are comparable to other schools in the University System of Georgia.

    Am enjoying being here

    KSU is rapidly growing and constantly changing - it's an exciting time to be an Owl! The dining hall, The Commons, was added in fall 2009 and a new soccer stadium (where the Atlanta Beat soccer team plays) opened in May 2010. A football team is expected in 2014. The dorms are great because you get your own bedroom regardless of which of the four communities you live in.

    Am learning a lot

    There are some excellent professors here who are experts in their field. The difference between KSU and some other large universities is that most of the professors here truly do love to teach and it is evident in their classes. In some of the general education courses the class sizes can be as large as 200, but in most classes there will be about 35 students, which means you'll get one-on-one time with your professors. Some notable professors here have included Congressman/presidential candidate Bob Barr and Georgia radio legend Rhubarb Jones.

    If you are a dedicated student and a social butterfly, this is the school for you. Or a person that is shy, but open minded and ready to try new things then this could also be the place for you. College is about finding oneself, doing new things, and meeting new people. KSU does not stray from that path.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come ready to work hard and get involved. This will make the time spent here successful and worthwhile.

    Bang for the buck

    The beautiful campus, the updated classrooms, and the new housing speak for themselves.

    Am enjoying being here

    Since I am a freshman, I am still getting use to making all new friends and associating with many different people. It is like being the new kid in school, but to aid with this change there are many social events on campus. The professors and students seem nice and helpful. The campus is gorgeous (check out The Green)! My first experience living in a dorm is great! The housing is new and spacious. Also all my classes are pretty close to each other. so no cross country walks to class.

    Am learning a lot

    All my professors have different approaches, so the learning styles are very diverse. They all want their students to be successful and move forward, you just have to make an effort on your part. There are many different courses and each teaches valuable information. The courses are not a waste of time or money from what I have experienced so far. There is a lot of reading, but the books chosen are timeless.

    Nursing majors, or potential medical degree-seekers. The Chemistry and Criminal justice departments are also very good.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get campus housing, if you can afford it, or if you need housing to begin with. Commuting is wild and unorganized, and traffic and parking can be impossible to handle at times.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition cost is, by far, the best thing about Kennesaw State University. The low In-state tuition has allowed me to take my core classes at a very acceptable and reasonable price. The campus is beautiful and the new dining hall is very deserving of appraisal. The services on campus are excellent for the cost of attending, and the price is perfect for the quality of education received. I'm sure we will see tuition costs rise dramatically very soon, as the introduction of a football team in 2014 will be spark some increased interest in this tuition state-wide, and possibly even nation-wide.

    Am enjoying being here

    I have enjoyed Kennesaw State University very much. It is a smaller school, with a nice community feel. I am, however, ready for something bigger and better. Although this school is greatly enjoyable, I am personally yearning to be part of a school with more people, more opportunities, and more entertainment. The main issue I have with KSU is the lack of majors. Since the school is still growing, many programs are not offered, and I cannot pursue my intended major of Mechanical Engineering. So, I will be moving on soon, but have enjoyed my time here very much.

    Am learning a lot

    The courses I have studied here are rigorous and numerous. General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Calculus I, II, and III, and Criminal Procedure are a few of the most challenging classes I have taken. However, the professors and fellow peers at Kennesaw are more than willing to do anything they can to help the students learn and succeed. I have enjoyed my coursework, in spite of it's difficulty, and I have learned very much from the classes and professors I have had.

    Keep your grades up and review clubs that you may be interested in before you get here. Try and live on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    Its at a very decent price for the money. It's the third largest school in GA so you will not see the same people everyday, but it's not overly huge. Seriously take a tour!

    Am enjoying being here

    There are tons of things to do on campus and around the community so I encourage you to get involved. And volunteer. And go to anything were there is something posted. You will enjoy it.

    Am learning a lot

    There are good teachers and bad. Study hard it helps you make good grades! Don't take a class your not interested in early unless you are a morning person.

    It's great for anyone really. Kennesaw is for the introvert and extrovert, for the class clown and the the top of the class. If go here I promise you won't be disappointed.

    Tips for prospective students

    One major tip is to get involved! Join a club, do a sport, something, anything! This is one great way to make connections as well as friends.

    Bang for the buck

    The dorms here are amazing compared to many of the other colleges that I have seen. You get in free to any sporting event that is held at home. The campus is absolutely beautiful and the maintenance crew does an awesome job at keeping everything clean and safe.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is beautiful, the students are very friendly, the teachers and staff are very helpful. This school is a great choice for anyone. We are even getting a football team soon. This school has practically all the attributes of the large colleges but the campus is still small which is perfect!

    Am learning a lot

    The classes are just the perfect amount of challenging and if you get a little lost, ask your teacher. The teachers here want to help and want you to succeed just as much as you do.

    Great for these types of students

    Self seeking, hands on, kinesthetic learners. While KSU is accommodating of every type of student, as a freshman I've found that the professors encourage you to find the answers on your own. They want you to really get into the material and practice it. Yes there are lectures, but there is also a lot of discussion and hands on learning.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do everything early. Go to orientation early, sign up for classes early, show up to class early, and ask, EARLY. Waiting until the last minute has never been a good idea, but it is even worse here. There are so many kids wanting exactly what you do and if you wait, you can guarantee it will be gone. Go for what you want and remember what you've learned. This is your life and no matter how badly your parents want you to be a heart surgeon, you can't control how you grow weak in the knees at the mention of a scalpel. You have to learn what you want and go for it. There are so many programs at KSU and you are guaranteed to find your niche. Also, we've all heard the horror stories of the girl/boy that goes to college and comes home a drunk, a drug addict, a drop out, or a parent. Cliche as it is, it's true. Don't forget some of the lessons your parents taught you. It's for your good.

    Bang for the buck

    KSU seems to have a million and one things to do. From exercise, to outdoor groups, to sororities and fraternities, to gospel choir. If you like to dress-up in medieval wear and role play, guess what? There is an entire unofficial club dedicated to just that. No matter what you like to do, you can find it at KSU. The food is pretty awesome. There's hot dogs and hamburgers, Chinese food, alfredo and spaghetti, biscuits, greens, and BBQ pork, naan and curry, tacos and spanish rice, a full length sandwich and salad bar, and a huge dessert and coffee island I only allow myself to visit once a week. And that's just dinner. Breakfast and lunch follow in a similar pattern. For upwards of $250 a semester, you're getting your moneys worth.

    Am enjoying being here

    There is always something happening on campus. Especially if you are living in the dorms. Going to the events lets you meet new people and have a good time. Most events always have free food and prizes. It's a great way to get a break from the books and let loose for a while.

    Am learning a lot

    Every teacher has a different perspective. They will definitely introduce you to an alternate way of viewing the topic. They will encourage you to form opinions and make sure you can have an intelligent conversation about whatever you are learning.

    Willing to get involved and taking initiatives to make it the because experience you will have. Otherwise, you'll just have a cruddy experience.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get help asap. Don't procrastinate, I do that too but I working on getting things done early. Get involved, you don't need to be in a sorority/fraternity. If there isn't a club, look into creating one! You'll definitely find friends fast.

    Bang for the buck

    This campus is much cheaper than most big universities. Although, the rising tuition is across the state so it can't be avoided. Use up your meals at the Commons (cafeteria) and it surely won't be wasted.

    Am enjoying being here

    I originally hated it during the beginning of the semester because A) Its a commuter campus B) People who live on campus leave on weekends so its dead. Although, its up to you to make a change and make it better. I've started joining clubs and trying to get involved. Gather some friends and play a game outside. Invite people to join. My number of friends expands each month as an oncampus student. There are also multiple events going on that usually is sent to your email. Plus, we have a large number of international students.

    Am learning a lot

    There will always being boring and terrible professors. Ratemyprofessor.com helped me so much and I am enjoying most of classes.

    Great for these types of students

    The school has so many diverse programs that it is pretty much great for all types. The only ones that it doesn't quite relate much to is the people who are taking a major not offered by the university.

    Tips for prospective students

    I encourage you to take the opportunity to join Kennesaw while it's still in its growing process. To see the transformations that the university is going through is a rather interesting thing. Don't let the popularity of a school determine where you go. I assure you that it is definitely possible that in 10 years Kennesaw could surpass one of your other top choices. Off campus apartment will save you a lot of money, but you will miss all of the events and fun experiences gained through Kennesaw's Residence Life programs.

    Bang for the buck

    Kennesaw is a cheaper school since it isn't as popular as UGA or GaTech. However, since we have grown so much and are continuing to grow at such a fast rate, there is no telling what the prices may be in years to come. For now, it is definitely worth the price. I'd even be willing to pay even more just to have a football team to help promote Kennesaw even more (KSU will be getting football in 2014). The education and experience is definitely worth the money. The dorms, however, are rather pricey! That is only because they are top notch and have several amazing residence life programs! The majority of the dorms are apartment style. Every single occupant has their own lockable rooms, so there is no sharing bunk beds! I think that majority or on-campus residents would rather have cheaper rent, though. It's a little overpriced. Their new culinary center has so many different varieties that I am always satisfied after each meal. However, the prices can be a bit outrageous. ~$7+ per meal. It is a buffet center so it's easy to get your money's worth, but for people who don't eat a lot, it can become a disadvantage.

    Am enjoying being here

    Kennesaw is an amazing school that is growing significantly. When I first came here, no one from my small town had heard of it and it was a lot smaller and looked a lot different. Within the past three years that I've been here, KSU has grown so much! Several dozen students from my hometown are transferring now to Kennesaw and it is definitely a now widely known university there. There are so many plans for further growth and it's just amazing to watch how much this school is transforming. I can't begin to imagine what KSU will be like in 10 years. I do know that my degree will be worth even more with years to come! Since Kennesaw is growing at such an amazing rate, the dean or success and several campus organizations are definitely putting a lot of effort into campus activities. I've seen this grow exponentially since my first year here. There are definitely many different opportunities you can become involved in to enjoy your experience here at KSU. And the list of activities are definitely continuing to expand and the current ones are improving a lot as well!

    Am learning a lot

    The general education courses are definitely not as intense as schools like Georgia Tech. As long as you go to the classes and take notes, it is rather simple to make straight A's in every gen. ed. course. My major specific courses are, of course, more intense yet still easy enough to make straight A's if you pay attention and study. If you're interested in learning as much as you can, it is possible to do at Kennesaw! You just have to discipline yourself to the studies instead of just doing enough to get by. My major specific college within Kennesaw is definitely the best I could attend in Georgia. I have been challenged and have learned so much to prepare myself for my career when I graduate. I am definitely glad that I can tell future employer that I obtained my degree from Kennesaw. And I will no doubt be coming back to Kennesaw for graduate school.

    Campus Safety

    i have never felt scared on campus, there is an emergency button post on just about every-corner or few feet. when pushed, these buttons alert the ksu police who are available 24/7 and will get to you as soon as possible. i can count at least 4-5 from my window. both ras and ksu police patrol the area regularly day and night. they also offer self-defense, first aid and cpr classes so in the event you are off campus, you can still defend yourself. there are certain parts of housing that are only accessible by your room key including hallways, so nobody can break in without having proper credentials.

    Clubs and Activities

    ksu offers a full spectrum of clubs and activities for anybody to do. if you're bored you need only walk to the nearest bulletin board to see the latest event. there is everything ranging from bible-study, student government, sororities/ fraternities and yes, even there is even a larping group on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    kennesaw state is great for those who want the experience of a big school with so much to offer without the noise or insanity of a city.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    because the campus is notorious for flooding and chilly winters, everybody works the rainy day fashion trend. this includes but is not limited to- rain boots/water proof shoes, jackets/slickers, messy hair and silly printed umbrellas. also, because of how many opportunities there are for free stuff, there is alot of ksu spirit wear. go owls!

    Bang for the buck

    definitely worth it! included in tuition & fees (which is mandatory to pay) you pay a small amount for all of the following stuff accessible exclusively to students: a 4-story library, the writing center, math lab, computer usage, on-campus wi-fi, admission into most athletic games, tournaments held on campus and a gym that offers exercise classes.

    What to do for fun

    first of all, i recommend you get to know your roommate(s) so you will have at least one person to have a blast with. at the beginning of the semester student life always throws a bunch of events where you can meet new people and get lots of free stuff (always a fantastic thing), resident assistants also like to have fun stuff, the day i moved in my ra had an ice cream social which was both awesome and delicious. c:

    Food and Dining

    there are many options available on campus where you can use your meal plans. the commons is most often the place of choice- it offers a tons of things and most of the time tastes pretty good! the hoot opens at 8pm and offers fast food items such as hamburgers, chicken sandwiches and fries. on the fly has things for you to grab on the way to class such as sandwiches or chips. there are also some coffee shops and other smaller places in various buildings all over campus.

    Dorm Life

    i love my dorm, it's cheap and comfortable. the area is safe so i don't feel like there is an issue and my roommates are great. every ra is different but the one assigned to my building is super awesome and makes an effort to get to know everybody personally. plus, housing is always throwing fun stuff so keep an eye out for it!

    Academic Rigor

    for every hard class there is an easy one, so it's hard to put a label on it overall but ask friends before signing up for a specific class, see what they thought of it. keep the classes under control and don't let it get you frustrated if you cannot understand something. ask questions, the professors don't mind or go to tutoring, the writing center and math lab are great resources.

    Tips for prospective students

    go to class; the one time you decide to skip will be the one time the professor mentions an assignment, you'll learn the information better and make friends. stay on top of your work; (keep an agenda) get it done as soon as possible- the quality of an essay is a lot better when it's not written being rushed an hour before it's due. besides, getting it done early means having a stress-free weekend. do your best; no matter what field you are going into people always look at your grades. and don't party obsessively, all you will do is end up hurting yourself or getting hurt, additionally you will have just wasted all your time, money and any effort you've put towards making something of yourself.

    In three sentences

    i love ksu, it is such a great community, no matter where you go or how late it is i always feel safe. the campus is gorgeous and there are always tons of events; there's no excuse not to have fun! it offers so many engagements to support and enhance your college experience.

    Campus Safety

    campus safety is very strict. there are many police officers on campus at all times ready to help if anything happens. this also includes speeding tickets so beware! but if there are any problems there are emergency stations all around campus. no need to fear!

    Great for these types of students

    almost everyone in georgia knows that ksu's nursing programs is one of the most well known in the state. a brand new building was built for nursing that makes you feel like you are learning in a real hospital. the science department is getting a new building as well which i am personally very excited about it. many business majors that i know say that ksu has a very strong business program to offer.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    i wouldn't say that they are unusual locations, but there are quite a few well known locations on campus. campus green, as mentioned earlier, is a large oval plot of grassy field with a sidewalk around it. many activities are done here. another location is the leaning man in the carmichael student center rotunda. he's a pretty weird guy just leaning there. there is a location right outside the social science building where a large number of smokers gather to hang out. it's great if you are a smoker but hold your breath otherwise! another hangout is within the carmichael student center on the first floor where a large number of computer and video game players set up their systems and tv's and play games together every day, almost all day.

    Bang for the buck

    the classes offered and the professors who teach are actually really great. i've had some wonderful professors who helped me tremendously and inspired me to choose the major i wanted. needless to say, with all the growth on campus with new dorms, new dining halls, and new football teams, student fees alone can be very harsh. but personally the experiences that i have had have outweighed the cost.

    What to do for fun

    as with most colleges there are lots and lots of fraternities, sororities, and clubs to join and attend. these organizations often throw events each week of every semester so there rarely is ever a dull week on campus. along with the organizations there is always ksu sports teams that have seasonal games that play at home and abroad that students can attend and raise team spirit. everyone is greatly looking forward to ksu's football team in the upcoming years.

    Food and Dining

    ksu has a brand new dining hall which provides students with an all you can eat and drink option on campus. the meals they provide can vary from absolutely delicious to questionably inventive. breakfasts are always my favorites at the dining hall. in order to maintain the building, students are required to pay for a specific number of meals (or swipes) depending on what year they are in. this will be very costly at first for freshmen, but they will find that having an unlimited amount of food their first year to be very helpful, especially since they can swipe in and stay in the facility all day to study and eat as much as they like. the other food options include a chic-fil-a, bagel shop, coffee shop, and a few other food shops.

    Dorm Life

    i haven't lived on campus, but from what i have heard and seen have been nothing but good news. the dorms look really great and they are right on campus which means hardly a walk to class. there are also a large number of dorms being built this year so look forward to that soon. just keep in mind that convenience equals higher cost of living.

    Academic Rigor

    every school has a set of general education courses that can be fairly easy if you focus, but beware as they may be difficult if you slack off from viewing them as unimportant. classes at ksu will be difficult as you ascend into your majors but the rewards from what you learn as you apply yourself will be well worth it.

    Tips for prospective students

    the campus is very large. make sure that when you register for classes that you give yourself enough time between classes to eat a snack and grab a drink to keep your mind alert and focused. there is a beautiful area right in the middle of campus called the campus green where students relax, play football, or have a nice jog early in the morning or evening. as mentioned earlier, parking is a rarity. make sure you arrive early if you can.

    In three sentences

    kennesaw state university is a wonderful university that offers students a wide range of majors and activities. this university is growing fast and adding many new exciting programs and majors including their first football team in the near future. if enrolled you'll enjoy the experience, just make sure you arrive early in the morning to get a parking spot so you'll make it to class on time!

    Greek Life

    The greek community on the ksu campus is a tight knit community. these organizations are involved in social and philanthropical efforts.

    Clubs and Activities

    there's something for everyone! improv, scrabble , latin dance, community service, faith-based groups, sports and so much more!

    Kids who don't want to do too much for their degree. At least Business students, I'm not sure about other majors.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want a degree for the sake of having a degree, this is probably the school for you. They'll keep you out of higher level classes, even if the lower levels are slower. Get in a bunch of clubs if you can, it might make the experience a bit better. From what I understand, cafeteria food is supposed to be horrible after a while so don't worry about it.

    Did enjoy being here

    The school is big but if feels small at the same time... The campus is wide, but there's little to do. Maybe it's because I was a commuter.

    Did learn a lot

    Didn't learn anything I didn't already know. Felt like more high school.

    I feel that the price of KSU is reasonable. It is affordable, especially if you have the HOPE scholarship. But even if you don't, it isn't too bad. :)

    Am enjoying being here

    I really enjoy the campus. It is really beautiful! I also enjoy the community. I've found that tons of the other students are super friendly and helpful, as long as you ask politely.

    Am learning a lot

    I feel like the teachers at KSU are very helpful, as long as you are respectful. I am succeeding in all of my classes thus far and plan to continue doing so.

    Tips for prospective students

    Research and compare 3 schools that you are looking to attend. What has the program that will benefit you and your career aspirations. Estimate what your cost will be and when you put the numbers on paper that will help you decide what is the best college for you. You may want to consider going to a community college then transferring in to a 4 year college.

    Bang for the buck

    I compared KSU to another college and they came out with the best tuition overall, even with fees and books. It is about 40 minutes from my home/work, so that will work out on my gas expenses.

    Will enjoy being here

    I will participate in the adult learner programs they have at KSU. I have been corresponding back with one of their representatives who was very knowledgeable about the process of starting college later in life. She put me in contact with great resources to help with college testing and helped with the admissions process.

    Will learn a lot

    I will learn about KSU when I attend the walking tour they have in July. They also have a session set up for adult learners in August before school starts.

    Students who want to do their best and be in a comfortable environment would truly enjoy this school. It is also good for students who like to live in a population mostly made up of college students. However, it is also about 40 minutes away from Atlanta, so that is also an option for the more out-on-the-town types. The campus is large, but is also walkable so it is not overwhelming. Good luck!

    Tips for prospective students

    Parking, as previously mentioned, is a problem with this campus. Please get there early to ensure that there is a parking spot available for you. There is plenty to do on campus if you decide to get there extremely early and there is plenty of space to relax or study should you choose to do that. Since you do pay for the meal plan in your fees despite wanting it or not, please go to the Commons and use it. If you don't like crowds then go on a Friday or late afternoon. It won't be as crowded then. Job opportunities are readily available on campus, so if you are looking for a job then use the Career Services Center and Kennesaw website to look for opportunities. Being employed at the university is beneficial because you get earlier registration times and they are understanding of your schedule. If you have any problems with a class then talk to your teacher. In my experience, they have all been very helpful if you just tell them what is going on. Hopefully this review has been helpful!

    Bang for the buck

    While this is a fairly cheap university to attend, there has been an increase in fees recently. This has been fairly disappointing, but it does happen. The decrease in HOPE has also had an impact on students. Despite this, it is a reasonable priced university and I would recommend it.

    Am enjoying being here

    Kennesaw State University is an aesthetically beautiful campus that is nice to walk. Parking is definitely not fun at all, but if you get there at least an hour before class and don't mind walking on occasion then you should have plenty of time to find a decent parking spot. All in all, Kennesaw State University has been an enjoyable experience for me. I started there when I was 17 and there were plenty of helpful professors and students who helped me get started and comfortable with the campus. High school students going to college at Kennesaw will have nothing to fear at this school.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning many new things at Kennesaw State University. It has been a tough four years, but I have maintained a 4.0. My teachers have, for the most part, been knowledgeable and understanding. Of course, there are a few that are not great, but that is true for every school. Many opportunities have been opened up to me due to this school. They have a strong student life program, a nice bookstore, and plenty of help for struggling students.

    Campus Safety

    There are always campus police cars going around the school, watching for speedy cars and suspicious activity. Crosswalks are always being attended to on busy class days through the week.

    Greek Life

    I am not part of Greek Life, but from common observation I would give it 2 out of 5 stars. There are no fraternity or sorority houses and I would say less than half the campus is involved in Greek Life.

    Clubs and Activities

    I am a part of the Army ROTC program at KSU. We are an extension school from Georgia Tech, but do most of our activities on our own. The program is challenging, but provides a great outlook for a military career.

    Recently, Kennesaw State broke the world record for Largest Human Peace Sign in the Guinness Book of World Records.

    Bang for the buck

    For a quality education, tuition is not much, around $6000 a year (thats not living on campus, meal plan, etc.)

    What to do for fun

    Go to the club hockey games! Kennesaw State has one of the top club hockey teams in the nation. The basketball team is recently rising on the D-1A level, so go out and support the Owls!

    Food and Dining

    The Commons is the main dining hall at Kennesaw State University and was recently voted in the Top 25 by Newsweek for Best College Dining. There is a variety of different, succulent foods that will keep you full for most of the day!

    Dorm Life

    I do not live on campus, but from what I see when I hang out with my friends, the dorm life can be somewhat exciting. If you can have fun responsibly and get together with friends, it is easy to make the most of your campus residence life.

    Academic Rigor

    Kennesaw provides a challenging, yet helpful academic curriculum. There are plenty of professors to choose from, many of which enjoy what they do. Finding an on-campus tutor is not difficult, and most of them are free!

    Tips for prospective students

    See if you can apply for on-campus residence. There are plenty of activities to partake in on campus and being a campus resident makes it easier to attend events. Also, be sure to prepare yourself for registration, as it is a step up from registering for high school classes. You will be doing most of that on your own. Their club football team is just starting up, so be sure to support them!

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State Univeristy is a major commuter school and I do live at home and commute. It is very accommodating to students and is a great school to start out or even go to for four years. Overall, I would give Kennesaw State a 7 out of 10.

    Every year the local Target hosts a late night shopping event for students where a majority of the merchandise is discounted. They even have charter buses to take you from campus to the store and back! Every semester before finals The Commons hosts a late night party.

    Bang for the buck

    They're is plenty of bang for the buck! One of the top choices for public universities in Ga. The location is perfect and tuition is around ...3200 per semester which is more than affordable. Most people think because tuition is affordable that the education isn't good, but thats definitely not the case here.

    What to do for fun

    They're lots of campus activities and clubs to join. But if thats not exactly your scene just grab some friends and head down to the campus green and join a game of frisbee or soccer.

    Food and Dining

    When i visit my other friends universities i'm appalled at the food that they pay for. At KSU the dining hall aka The Commons is a place people can't get enough of. All of the food is fresh and the selection is huge. They have a full salad, soup, and sandwich bar every day. Along with Grilled foods, Pizzas, Southern, and even Chinese. I upgrade my meal plan every semester from 16 meals to 48 because i feel its worth it.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is amazing!! (but a bit pricey). I must say KSU has done a great job at making their dorms homey, and accommodating. They're all (with the exception of two communities) state of the art, with top notch appliances, great architecture, and furnishings. Rent is circa 600/per month. But I feel it was worth it the one year i lived on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are harder than others, just like at any other college. But most of my teachers have been extremely caring, and more than willing to put in extra one on one time to make sure you succeed. When it comes to academic rigor its what you put in and the classes that you take, that will determine your success.

    Tips for prospective students

    When applying make sure your SAT and GPA are at least midrange. In the past few years they've become more selective because the campus is growing like crazy. Also don't be afraid to be yourself when filling out the application. Don't put what you THINK they want to hear. Being apart of the crowd is boring.

    What to do for fun

    There are many things around campus to do, such as hookah bars, if youre into that kind of thing. In 2015 there will be a football team so tailgating will be an option. Many people hang out in each others dorms since they are so big.

    Food and Dining

    The commons is amazing! They have so many healthy options and also some not so healthy options. They grow some of their food themselves so its always fresh and tasty. There are also many other options available on campus. The Hoot however, is the worst place to eat. its all fried and burnt. Everywhere else is good, just avoid the hoot.

    Dorm Life

    I actually commute to school, but have spent plenty of nights on campus. The dorms are ridiculously huge. I'm talking actual apartment size. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. They also have plenty of programs in place to get you involved around campus.

    Academic Rigor

    This school feels like a more social school rather than academic rigor. The class sizes were small thus leading me to feel like i was still in high school. Seriously, 3 of my five classes had around 30-40 people in them. I also felt that there were way too many opportunities given to make up tests, homework, projects and it made me feel that people didn't earn the grades they got.

    Tips for prospective students

    Use your meal plan swipes! There are so many people i know that pay for the meal plan and do not use them! Every swipe you dont use is on average about 10 dollars you throw away. I know people who had around 50 left at the end of the semester. Thats 500 dollars out the window.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State University is an awesome school to go to and is ever expanding. It does seem to me, however, that it is a school based more on community involvement rather than academic rigor. That being said, it is still a great school.

    There are poles all around campus that are emergency poles that you can press a button and a police officer will respond in 3 minutes or less. As well as the safety commission having a twitter that each student can follow and keep up to date with any news!

    Greek Life

    I am a part of Greek life and I would not trade this experience for the world. We don't really have Greek housing, but it is something that the school is working towards! Greek life has so much to offer the students for fun, community service, as well as academics.

    Lots of different clubs on campus for any type of person whether it be a hospitality club, or you want to work with Owl Radio or Volunteer Kennesaw State University, you have so many options!

    Attending classes, meeting up at the green for some enoing, frisbee, or even football is always a great time. Coming to sporting events is also a great time!

    Food and Dining

    KSU exceeds all expectations when it comes to the Commons. They really offer a little of everything for everyone, whether it be homecooking, burgers, pizza, pasta, asian, sandwiches, or anything else they have planned to whip up, it is an amazing place to eat and socialize.

    Dorm Life

    My first year at KSU I lived in the dorms. My friends and I still talk about our amazing experience living on campus. You meet so many people walking in the hallways, and your RAs always have weekly activities to get to know your hallmates!

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are hard, not something that you can skate through. Professors are always such a help, and are always willing to work with your specific needs if you come to them. Most of all though, the classes are entertaining and interesting.

    Being that Kennesaw is like the second largest public school in Georgia, tuition is not too bad, and the relatively small amount you pay in tuition and fees pays for nearly EVERYTHING on campus. Take advantage.

    There is always something happening on campus, or around campus. If you don't have a car, like me, don't worry there are tons of things to do and there are always people with cars, just be social and you'll have rides to nearly everything happening around Kennesaw and Atlanta.

    Being only 15 minutes from Atlanta and plenty to do in Kennesaw itself, you can't get bored. There's always something going on on campus, but if you want to get away go to Town Center which is 5 minutes away. Or you can drive to Atlanta and go to a club or even more shopping and eating.

    Food and Dining

    Our dining hall is the best. There are at least 10 different stations with great food, it's two stories and CLEAN. There's also plenty of places to eat around KSU,, there are tons of restaurants right beside it. Kennesaw has become a college town. There's coffee shops all over the campus and places to get food in almost every building. You will no go hungry here. EVER.

    Dorm Life

    I know some people love the dorms, but I didn't. I lived there for 2 months and then moved out. Not because of the dorm life though, The RA's are always planning something for you to do. It's just the fact that you are always on campus, and it's not a huge place. However, KSU is so close the mall, plenty of restaurants, and tons of other stuff.

    I feel challenged here, but not overwhelmed. I graduated from high in the very top of my class and I feel like KSU was the perfect it for me.

    Campus Safety

    safety is a huge thing for kennesaw. if anything suspicious is going on on campus, they will notify you three times, even if you are not at serious risk. they will first call you, then text you, and also email you the same message so you are up to date about what is happening. there are campus police everywhere on campus, and if you happen to not be around any and you are being chased or have an emergency, there are plenty of emergency call boxes that have these buttons on them that once you press them, it will automatically call the campus police (who can call the county police) to the exact location of where you hit the button. you should never feel unsafe on this campus.

    Greek Life

    greek life is not a huge part of kennesaw state university. the fraternities and sororities do not own houses, but instead they have designated meeting rooms within the student center building. it is a growing organization at the school though, so i would say within fifteen years they will all own houses, but it would be farther away from campus due to the campus being in the heart of kennesaw and not having much room to expand on the main campus grounds.

    Clubs and Activities

    there are many many clubs that you can join. there are a lot of religious groups that are pretty active on campus along with the fitness clubs.

    Great for these types of students

    i would say if you were a student who was wanting to have a non-traditional styled school that has been built within the city, this is a great school for them. the students should not want to be on campus as much as wanting to be around the campus seeing what the world has to offer. it is a great area to get a job and an apartment off campus, since there is a large mall and many other stores.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    the green, which is a giant circle of grass that has a small walking track around it in the heart of campus, usually has many different people on it doing different things. people like to slack-line, which is where you take a hammock like object and tie it up in the trees around the green, and sleep in it for hours on a great sunny day. also, some people tight rope in between the trees, and many people play frisbee on the green. so the green is probably the best place to have unorganized fun on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    the school overall is pretty great for the price and location. it is a growing school, so they do have a lot more fees and will charge you for random things that you probably did not think you would have to pay for. you have access to many high tech things, and you always will have the ability to get with a free tutor and have your paper edited if you need it to have a second look by someone other than yourself.

    What to do for fun

    kennesaw state university is in the heart of kennesaw the city. there is town center mall, which has a great variety of stores. there are also a great variation of bars, clubs, and restaurants to visit around the city. you are not far from the highway, so you can get right onto it and get to atlanta within thirty minutes. the campus has a variety of things going on, so getting involved would give you plenty of opportunities to have something to do.

    Food and Dining

    the dining hall, the commons, is a great place to eat. as soon as you swipe your id card, you are accessible to hundreds of different options. you could eat pizza, foreign foods, southern styled food, desserts, salads, and burgers. the menus of the different types of foods always has a great variety to it. the school is very environmentally friendly, so you don't have to deal with throwing away dirty paper plates, but instead they have a state of the art washing room that power cleans all the dishes. the commons is also a great social place because everyone can get exactly what kind of food they want, yet still be with their friends.

    Dorm Life

    i have not lived in the dorms, so i would not know how the dorm life is on a daily basis. from what i've heard, it is great to live on campus and the resident assistants are pretty relaxed about what goes on in the halls.

    Academic Rigor

    i have only had to take general education classes that everyone is required for their major, so i cannot put input on any academic classes for upper level students. with that being said, the classes are pretty easy. i have not had to take much time out of my days off campus to make sure i knew the content in my classes. if you go to lectures you will be okay, for the most part.

    Tips for prospective students

    i would really look into reviews on possible professors on various websites prior to enrolling into their classes. there are many great professors, but there are more bad professors. you really do not want to take the chance and possibly have a bad professor because at that point you might as well drop out of the class altogether. usually they make it very difficult to find a way to help you out in getting your grade better.

    In three sentences

    kennesaw state university is not a school that feels like a home away from home. it is still heavily a commuter school. since it has many commuters, the feel of campus is one of get in and get out.

    the campus green is a place on campus where students are liveliest. on a nice day where the sun is shining one can commonly find hammocks hung between trees and students making friends over tossing the frisbee or playing a game of soccer.

    There are so many fun things to do at KSU. The Green during the spring and summer months is where most students flock. On The Green, students place soccer, frisbee, football, and even croquet.

    The Campus Green is where most people hang out in the warm months. There are lots of games going on and you can also rent hammocks to tie to the trees. There are swings and places to just hang out with friends as well. Most sporting events at KSU are free for students. Ice hockey games are not, but they only cost $3 for students and are definitely worth the money! There is always something going on on campus to participate in.

    Food and Dining

    Our dining hall is called the Commons. It is a buffet style dining area. You swipe your ID card, and you can stay as long as you want and eat as much as you want. There are a large number of food options and the menu changes everyday. They also have vegan and gluten free options. At night, The Hoot is open and it is like a fast food type restaurant that also uses your meal plan. The Hoot offers many different options for late-night dining and is located right beside the dorms. There is also free food offered many days of the week at random events.

    Dorm Life

    Residence Life is a huge part of KSU. The dorms are amazing, no matter where you live. There are essentially four different living options, all which will suit your needs effectively.

The Residence Assistants (RAs) are extremely friendly and always willing to help out.

    Make sure you get familiar with your professors. Getting to know them definitely helps your grade. Gain knowledge of who is teaching what course before you choose one. The difference between two professors will effect what you learn in the course and whether you become interested in the material. Be friendly to everyone; it is a great way to make friends. Get involved! The more involved you are, the more passionate you will be about this school and the more you'll enjoy college.

    Campus Safety

    KSU is actually a quite safe campus. There is a very low rate of theft, sexual assault, and other dangers that are quite common on some other campuses (i.e. shootings, etc.). It's important, however, to take every precaution you would anywhere else, because no campus is perfectly safe. Don't leave your dorm room unlocked or deadbolted unless you're inside it, don't leave your bookbag/purse/keys unattended in the Commons or library (or anywhere else, for that matter), and lock your car in the parking decks/lots (and make sure not to leave anything visible in your car that would invite someone to break in). If you live on campus, when you go home or on vacation, take your most valuable things with you from your dorm room, just in case. KSU is fairly safe, but you can never be too careful.

    Greek Life

    There are so many different sororities and fraternities on campus to join. A common warning: they are expensive. I am not in a sorority myself, or any Greek organization, but I have plenty of friends who are, and they love it. It's yet another great way to meet people and find a place for yourself. From what I've heard, your sorority or fraternity will become your family, and if you're living on campus, it's nice to have some kind of family that you'll see often.

    Clubs and Activities

    It's impossible to count the organizations, clubs, societies, and activities to get involved in at KSU. From sororities and fraternities, to intramural sports, to the cheerleading and dance squads, to honor societies (which, by the way, do not deem you a nerd if you join - it just means you've been serious about your education and you're being rewarded for it) - there is truly something for everyone. There's even a horror movie club that shows horror movies every week. It is SO important to get involved on campus and join something - even if it's just for a resume or scholarship application, you're going to want to be a part of something, find a niche for yourself. It's a matter of taking pride in the fact that you are an important part of Owl Country, and truly enjoying your college experience, instead of considering it a grueling four or more years of hard book-hitting and academic torture. College truly will be the best years of your life.

    Great for these types of students

    Kennesaw State is a great choice for students who want to be pushed academically but still want the opportunity to get involved on campus. While the work can be hard, if you stay on top of it, you will have plenty of time to join clubs, organizations, and societies. It's also a great place for nursing students - the nursing program here at KSU is highly renowned, highly competitive, and will be very rewarding if you get in. The business and education programs are also great, and the theatre/drama department here is growing rapidly.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Some interesting traditions on campus include KSU Day, which is held on the campus Green, and gives students a chance to get outside in the spring and enjoy free food, games, and other activities, and celebrates KSU. There's also Cram Jam, which, as I mentioned, is a party in the Commons to kick-off finals week. As for unusual locations, there aren't many of those. Everything is fairly easy to find and access.

    Bang for the buck

    For what you pay in tuition, Kennesaw State is certainly worth the money. You will receive a fantastic education and meet incredible people. Meal plans and dorm rent are expensive and may not be for everyone (although every freshman is required to purchase a meal plan), but if you choose to live on campus, the dorms are no Motel 6. What you pay in rent gets you respectably nice living quarters. If you choose to attend KSU, don't let anyone make you feel guilty, or lame for not choosing a more popular Georgia university, such as UGA or Georgia Tech. Kennesaw State is a truly wonderful school, too, even if it doesn't receive proper recognition for it.

    What to do for fun

    From sporting events to dance parties in the University Village to Cram Jam (the end-of-semester party held in the Commons to kick-off finals week), it's nearly impossible to be bored. The campus Green, in the middle of the campus, almost always has something going on during the warmer months of the year. If you live in the dorms, there is an endless supply of Residence Life events to go to, and I highly recommend that you go! It's an entertaining, easy way to meet new people, make friends, and get to know the RA's of the building, and there's usually always free food (and because meal plans are expensive, it's always a good idea to go to events where there's free food). There's also a good chance at many events to get free t-shirts, which are always good to have. My best advice is to NOT stay in your dorm room all the time - get out there, go to events, and enjoy all of the things that KSU has to offer. College is about having fun, too!

    Food and Dining

    There are so many option for food and dining at Kennesaw State. The Commons, which is the main dining hall, is the main place to eat, with different restaurants to visit, and usually, all of the food is delicious. In the Commons, you can stay as long as you want (well, until they close), eat as much as you want, and even bring your homework - it has wifi! There are also multiple coffee shops around campus, as well as a sandwich shop and Chick-Fil-A in the student Center. Next to the Commons is On The Fly, a small place to get drinks, wraps, pizza, and sandwiches, and take them with you on your way to class or back to the dorms. There's also a small cafe on the first floor of the University Village Suites, one of the freshman-exclusive dorms, and, finally, the Hoot, a restaurant in the Village (freshman dorms) that serves everything from chicken tenders and fries to funnel cake.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is great at KSU, with several different dorms to room in. The dorms are themselves beautiful, and a lot of interesting and engaging events happen there. You can have your own room, or anywhere from 2 to four roommates. There can be, as with any other college's living arrangements, roommate conflicts, but that's what the RA's are there to help with. The RA's are incredible. They become some of the first friends you'll make, and they're great to go to with any questions. They have basically seen, heard, and experienced it all!

    Academic Rigor

    Kennesaw State University is definitely a university that takes its academics seriously. Many of the classes, in order for you to do well, require regular attendance (meaning, don't miss any of you can help it, and if you do, make sure you find out what you missed!), regular studying, and a lot of reading (I cannot stress this enough. There is so much reading to do here). Most of the professors are absolutely fantastic and will help you in any way I can. KSU truly does care about its students! Some of the programs, such as the nursing program, require extremely impressive grades as well as community and extracurricular involvement to give you a better chance of getting in, but if you truly put forth the effort, you will succeed beyond your own wildest expectations (and others', as well).

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not put off turning in financial aid documents or correcting anything on them that may be wrong or missing. It is vital, once you are accepted and have set up a KSU student email address, that you check it daily, even before you start attending, because you will constantly receive important emails through that address. Do not procrastinate on anything concerning the tax returns, verification forms, or anything else they need from you. It's much less stress if you stay on top of everything. Also, apply for as many scholarships as you can, and get as much money as you can. The worst that can happen is that you have excess money, and you get a nice refund check. The last thing you want is to take out a student loan, like I did. Also, get involved on campus! Do not stay home on a constant basis. Join something, anything, and meet new people. It's such a rewarding experience to be involved on campus, and believe it or not, it's easy to make a difference not only on campus, but in the community and even in individual people's lives, by getting involved. You will have more fun and gain greater experience than you might think.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State University is a higher education institution that actually cares about its students and doesn't simply view them as tuition-paying attendees. It's a very diverse campus with students from every corner of the globe, and is accepting of any and all races, cultures, religions, and orientations. It's easy to feel at home at KSU, like you've really found a place for yourself.

    Campus Safety

    KSU police are everywhere, and are always willing to help out with any circumstance. There are emergency call boxes all around campus so that a policeman can be reached even if you dont have the number or if you've lost your phone. All in all, I would say Kennesaw is a pretty safe campus. It is in a good part of town ( not that any part of Kennesaw is a bad part of town) It is simply a good, clean, safe area to live in and attend school.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many different clubs to join at Kennesaw; the student center offers the widest variety its sometimes hard to figure out where to start when you walk in.

    Great for these types of students

    Kennesaw has a very diverse population and is accommodating to all types of students, not just traditional high school graduates. It offers clases online for the non-traditional student who may not have time for going to campus or night classes, as well as classes starting from 7:30 am ending at 10:15pm for the students who want to come to class before or after work. There are a number of hybrid classes, and classes offered at the center for continuing education for specific certifications that don't require even being a Kennesaw student. There is a variety of major options and graduate school options so that anyone seeking almost any degree is welcomed and will be taken care of there.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a Live Action Role Playing commune that enjoys their sport out on the campus green on a regular basis. They are pretty entertaining to watch if ever sun-bathing on the green. The green is a large grassy field in the middle of campus surrounded by the student center, recreation center, Kennesaw Hall, and the Coles College of Business. Its a popular hang out spot where people pay ultimate frisbee, football, soccer, lacrosse, and of course LARPing.

    Bang for the buck

    Kennesaw is definitely worth the amount students pay to attend!! Students pay so many fees alongside tuition, so you might as well take advantage of everything your campus has to offer. There is a student Recreation and Wellness center that is pretty outstanding, and its technically FREE (you pay for it with your tuition). You will have to pay an international fee that goes to paying for scholarships that send students on study abroad programs- so sign up for one and use YOUR money. Its only the smart thing to do; if you are already paying for it, utilize it.

    What to do for fun

    The places to be around Kennesaw (depending on your scene) are Chicago's Pizza/Bar, TacoMac, Electric Cowboy, or Sidelines for the most part. Kennesaw Mountain is a good hiking experience, and there's Pigeon Hill if the big mountain isn't enough for you. There are tons of events that go on on-campus, but they are usually during the day. There is a pretty good Greek-life population at Kennesaw, but there aren't that many fraternities/sororities to chose from. Nature bound is a fun club to join if you like the outdoors, and there are a ton of on-campus concerts/plays that go on throughout the semester. All of the Kennesaw athletic events are free for students so try to go to some of those.

    Food and Dining

    The Commons is very convenient because there is a required meal plan tier for freshman and full-time off campus students, so whenever you're broke and need some food, as long as its open, you can use meal plan swipes and have all you can eat. The food is pretty good, especially from the Globe Trotter, and you can never go wrong with the grilled cheese sandwiches!

    Dorm Life

    Living on campus is always more expensive than living off campus; however, not having to find parking before class is a huge convenience that off campus students do not get the pleasure of having. The resident life activities are fun and usually involve food, and the RA's are pretty reasonable.

    Academic Rigor

    There is always more homework in core classes than in upper-level courses, but the upper-level courses are much harder, so keep your GPA up with the core classes your first couple of years, it will prepare you for the amount of studying you'll have to do in your 3rd and 4th years of college. (and if you happen to fail your first major class, you have a strong GPA to fall back on)

    Tips for prospective students

    Get to school at class change time and you will always find a parking spot in a lot instead of a parking deck. Use ratemyprofessor.com when selecting your classes so that you know what you're in for as far as work load goes, but be advised: lazy students will always give professors bad ratings so read ALL of them to get a real picture of what the professor is like. Try to find an apartment or house off-campus if you're paying for yourself. University Place and University Village are the best on campus housing you will find- so live there if you can afford it and want the convenience of walking to class.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw is a great college campus. It has the feel of a community college and big university, just without the down town bar scene that other colleges have. The professors at Kennesaw have actually worked in the fields that they teach, which makes it a better learning experience for the student because we can tell that they actually know what they are talking about.

    Campus Safety

    Safety is placed at the top of the agenda list here at KSU and you are always made well aware of anything that happens on or in the vicinity of the university's grounds. The school will alert you via text, email, and even provide a courtesy phone call to ensure you get the message. I always feel safe and secure.

    Great for these types of students

    Minority students, adults returning back to college, or non-traditional students will love the atmosphere at KSU. At KSU you do not feel out of place or like an outcast. Everyone partakes in a welcoming and close-knit family like setting at this university, and I love this about KSU because I have yet to see it duplicated at any other college in GA.

    Bang for the buck

    A-F-F-O-R-D-A-B-L-E! This university is definitely easy on your wallet and you do not have to go into debt to attend school. KSU has many financing options and allows you the ability to really choose how you pay for college.

    What to do for fun

    Apart from my academics, I enjoy spending time at the gym, spending time in the lower level of the library (great hangout believe or not) or attending an event. There is always something enjoyable to do on campus.

    Food and Dining

    As a commuter student, I enjoy eating at the Commons every time I step on campus. It is really hard to avoid all of their tasty creations and homestyle favorites. Whether you have to eat on the run or prefer to dine in, KSU Dining experience is the absolute best! Rated number one in cleanliness, friendliness, and the food is scrumptious and quite appeasing to even the pickiest of eaters.

    Dorm Life

    KSU is has apartment-style housing to suit all of your dormitory needs. They offer great variety in different floor plans, roommate options, nearby shopping experiences, and bountiful amenities. KSU's student dorm life has got it going on!

    Academic Rigor

    KSU is known a great place for college students of all ages. It is here where most are eager to attend because of its reknown and academically sought after reputation. If you're looking for a university that will allow you a chance to challenge yourself and invigorate your mind, then look no further! You will be engaged with your academic studies and experiences here at KSU.

    Tips for prospective students

    When you start at Kennesaw, do not be afraid to interact with others. KSU offers an enormous amount of organizations that support and foster learning, growth, and development. You will find yourself asking, why haven't I been told prior to this moment about such an outstanding school. So be sure to get involved! Fair warning, along with your involvement on campus...you should also make sure you've come prepared. If you come prepared and ready to learn, you will thank yourself in the long run. While KSU provides loads of fun activities to participate in, don't lose sight of your purpose. Stay focused on achieving academic success. Interact regularly with your professors. The faculty members of KSU are phenomenal and have a wealth of knowledge that can help you beyond the classroom. Go, become a sponge. It's a great way to soak up great information and learned valuables lessons that can be attributed to your future successes in your life experiences.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State University offers an optimistic opportunity to engage students, faculty, staff members, and its community in a blended college setting. There is a genuine sense of pride and it bears special meaning to most who are privileged to be apart of the college experience. In short, I feel as though I am a part of one BIG, HAPPY family!

    What to do for fun

    There is always something going on campus, you just have to look for it. A majority of the time activities are heavily advertised but sometimes there are other events either on campus, or locally that are going on.

    Food and Dining

    The Commons is great. There are also a few cafes on campus as well that are good. It's important to remember that the Freshman 15 is not a myth!

    Dorm Life

    Living on campus is such an amazing experience. You get the opportunity to meet so many people from different cultures and backgrounds. There's always all sorts of free events happening that are thrown by the RA's. I would definitely suggest living on campus, especially if you are a freshman.

    Academic Rigor

    As with any school the classes are going to challenge you. Granted, there are some classes that are going be a lot easier for some people. As long as you stay focused and put the effort into making good grades you will do well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you visit a college before you commit to enrolling. Just because it looks good on paper doesn't mean it's the school for you. If you do decide that this is the school for you, then congratulations! You've made a wise choice. I encourage that you try to live on campus because it allows you to meet so many new people. Also attend as many events as possible. They're always a good time and are a great way to experience new things. You should get to know your RA as well. They're always such wonderful people and can be there for you as a friend or even a mentor. It's easy to get caught up in the all the excitement of freshman year, but don't neglect your studies. After all, you are there to learn.

    In three sentences

    This experience has been completely gratifying. There is an amazing sense of community and I have felt so welcome and at home while attending this college. I am very proud to be a student here.

    Sporting Events (free with valid KSU student ID) any events on The Green, events that KAB creates, or outings with the Rec Center like whitewater rafting.

    Food and Dining

    The Commons is usually pretty good. It's the same things every two weeks but as long as you don't go that often it's still yummy. The Hoot is open from 8pm-1am and is delicious as well as a great hangout.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors want you to understand the material not just get through it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared. Don't come just for school, make sure you make new friends and attend events.

    I have always felt safe. There is a number to call if you are feeling unsafe for any reason.

    Greek Life

    No on campus housing for greek life as Cobb County won't allow it, but there are a few fraternities and sororities to get plugged into.

    Clubs and Activities

    Many clubs and activities to get involved in that will suit your needs and expectations. Many exercise activities at gym to get involved in to meet people.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students that want to live on campus, commute, and enjoy the college experience that is not to crazy, but still fun.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Nothing really unusual, except when certain religious groups come to the first amendment area and get out of control.

    Bang for the buck

    Some of the fees seem excessive, but it is an up and coming school so it makes sense that the fees are going up. Tuition is not terrible and the hope scholarship in Georgia has been great.

    What to do for fun

    Work out, run on campus, hang out on the green and play frisbee. Attend the classes at the gym. Join an club team to make friends and play a sport to stay involved.

    Food and Dining

    I like the different options the dining hall offers on different days. I also like that for upperclassmen they only make you get a smaller dining package for students that do not live on campus and don't need the meals.

    Dorm Life

    I lived on campus for two years and I enjoyed the convenience of walking to class and getting to take naps between class. I enjoyed being able to have people over between class to either study or just hang out.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are tough. Attend classes and study. Don't expect to not study and just make great grades. You must put in the work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Attend class, read your books and study your notes to help make good grades. Make time to exercise to relieve stress from tests and studying.

    In three sentences

    It is a very great university. Most of the professors really care about their students and want to help them succeed. The classes are hard within the biology department, but attending class and studying will help you succeed.

    Campus Safety

    There are emergency phones all over the place, so you don't have to know how to dial 911. I haven't heard of any crime on campus at all, that is likely to do with the location because the Campus is in the middle of so much, you'd be crazy to try to commit a crime.

    Greek Life

    KSU is home to quite a few Greek houses, but choose wisely, and take the color of the frat or sorority house into consideration, some of them are really crazy colors.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs to join or activities to get involved with you may not have time to study! The Arts department has proven itself to be above par, and the sports are doing quite well also. Student's keep finding new things to do and to make up, so there is no way to be bored on campus. So, allocate your time wisely, stay off Greek row, and keep to the books!

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for any kind of student. There is always something to do, somewhere to go, or some world record breaking human peace sign being put together.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Campus Green is the funniest place during the day, you'll see a rabble of religious fanatics yelling at the tops of their lungs, and hipsters playing guitar under the trees on a bench. It is so entertaining to just sit there and watch better than reality TV reality.

    Bang for the buck

    If you have any outside scholarships, you'll be good as far as paying. If you have some trouble with money don't live in the new dorms. But overall, you'll get a great education for your money.

    What to do for fun

    You can stay back and go see a concert if you like, or just people watch on the campus green. If you get bored between classes, run over to the mall on the buses and do a little shopping. Soon enough we'll have a big football stadium to go to games. Now you can still go watch our team or the Atlanta Beat go play soccer in the stadium, then go across the street to the Ice Forum and skate.

    Food and Dining

    Campus Commons are delicious. There is so much food in buffet style dining and you never have to be hungry. There is so much around the campus to go do that you never have to eat in one place twice in weeks if you eat out often. You can even go to Towne Center Mall and eat in the food court if you want.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are a little expensive, but for good reason. These are some of the nicest dorms I have ever seen in any college visit. Most are basically apartment style living, and they keep expanding into huge complexes of student life with plenty of amenities.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes aren't as hard as most AP classes in high school. You really just need to buckle down and do your work and you can maintain an A grade point average as well as a social life at the same time. Most of the teachers are willing to help, and they definitely appreciate a student who comes to learn instead of goof off.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply to the school early and get first dibs on classes, right now you can get classes that never meet on Fridays. If you can't quite afford living on campus, there are lots of apartments in the area, and commuting is not as bad as it seems. Get involved in something because there are a lot of different things to do and you'll meet a lot of people.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State is in nearly the perfect spot for a college. The campus is beautiful and relatively easy to find your way around. The people are helpful, fun, and very diverse.

    The KSU police seem to care about the wrong things. The parking garages are very sketchy and the campus security seems to focus on catching drinking rather than protecting those in the parking decks. Some bad things have been reported happening in the decks.

    Greek Life

    I'm not involved in Greek Life, but we do have Greek Life and the people who are involved in it seem to love it.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a club or team for any and everything you could ever imagine, from event planning and coordination, to video games and flag football.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    None that I know of.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is very expensive. It is a university but there are some student fees that students have actually deputed simply because some of the fees were irrelevant to those groups of students.

    What to do for fun

    KSU is near Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield where you can hike/bike/cookout. Acworth Beach is also not too far and the city of Atlanta is only 20 minutes.

    Food and Dining

    The commons is great! Yes eventually you will get sick of it, but there is free food almost everyday somewhere one campus so its not too bad!

    Dorm Life

    RHA really does an awesome job to keep each and every member of on-campus living involved. There is a lot of free events and giveaways. This really contributes to the overall expirience of college.

    Academic Rigor

    It is academically challanging but the work load in any subject is never impossible and teachers are more than willing to help and work with you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved! Make sure that you are participating in clubs and intramurals sports and clubs! It is the best way to really get ahead.

    Campus Safety

    I adore our campus security. We have emergency contact stations everywhere on campus. They are located in all of the parking lots, and also throughout campus. You can press the button on the pillar and security will be contacted to come to your location. Also, there are patrol cars that are out all night so there is never a chance that you are not safe on campus. You can call the campus police and they can escort you to where ever you need to be if you ever feel uncomfortable.

    Greek Life

    I am not a member of the Greek life, but I do have a lot of friends in them. Joining Greek Life is definitely a quick and easy way to gain friends and get to know people on campus. Being Greek also has a lot of benefits and they have tons of fun!

    Clubs and Activities

    We have many different clubs and activities. Joining an intramural team is definitely a number one must do here at Kennesaw. We also have an adventure club. In this club, students are able to go hiking, camping, skiing, etc, and go on trips to other states to have loads of fun!

    Great for these types of students

    Any Nursing or Business major should definitely consider Kennesaw State University! Of course, other students are more than welcome, it's just that these are our two highest programs!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We hole memorial services and candle light gatherings when needed. Also we have KSU Day which is super fun! It's like a mini carnival. We have prizes, foods, games, and rides out on the green! Also, the teachers are really lenient with letting us go have fun on this day.

    Bang for the buck

    Kennesaw State University is definitely worth the money. We have two of the highest rated programs here at Kennesaw. Those programs are our Nursing and Business programs. These programs are highly credited and will not cost you the amount of money as an ivy league school.

    What to do for fun

    JOIN AN INTRAMURAL TEAM!!! This is the funnest and easiest way to have fun and meet people. Also the RA's of the dorms set up get togethers so you can meet your fellow peers.

    Food and Dining

    The meal plan can get pricey, but we have different stations to choose from in our food court. We don't really get new recipes in that often, but when we do, I am excited to taste the new food. However, I still enjoy the food that is offered.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is one of the many reasons I chose Kennesaw State University! I am able to have my own room with my own bathroom. It is an apartment style dorm and I have three other roommates that also have their own room and own bathroom.

    Academic Rigor

    I have yet to have a professor/class that was bad. All of my professors have been wonderful and extremely helpful! Classes were not easy but they weren't hard either. The classes challenges you enough so when you learn the material, you remember it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Try to become apart of the campus! It is a great way to meet people and has many benefits!

    In three sentences

    On a scale of 1-10, Kennesaw State University is a 100! I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The campus life and all professors are amazing!

    Campus Safety

    It sounds like I'm just bragging on KSU, but it seriously have every single basis covered. If there is a problem, campus police is there in a minute. They are very helpful and kind. But be wary! Don't run through stop signs, allow pedestrians to cross, and don't park in faculty/staff/commuter parking. They take their job seriously, and they will give you a ticket. But if you're a good student like me, just sit back and enjoy Campus Safety do their job, and do it well. :)

    Greek Life

    Again, yes we have it all. That's one thing NOT to worry about. The greek life world is very much alive and well. If that's your bent, then you will certainly find a greek group that suits your fancy, whether it be for social or academic purposes.

    Clubs and Activities

    Just about anything you can name, we got it. Football, of course, is just around the corner.

    Great for these types of students

    Free-spirited; likes to have options; wants huge-campus-small-feel setting; city person; wants to be challenged and work with the best of the best; enjoys state-of-the-art opportunities and facilities.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We do have interesting art around campus. Some are from our dynamic art students, but there is some from other places, like a part of the wall from Berlin near the Social Sciences building. It is so wonderful to look at on the way to class. It has art all over it from people back then that signed it. It was makes me want to be better, because it is a piece of art that represents people who were oppressed and couldn't express themselves for a time.

    Bang for the buck

    Yes, yes, and yes. Kennesaw was my first and only choice for college. It was economical for a 4-year, and I didn't want for any opportunities, socially and certainly not educationally.

    What to do for fun

    Where to begin.... there's a mall about 5-10 minutes away, a huge strip mall also about 5-10 minutes away, including a movie theater (and a nice one at that!). About 20 minutes from Atlanta. Kennesaw Mountain is close for trails, biking, picnics, etc. On campus you have everything from guest speakers, activities on the Campus Green (a huge grassy field we use as the go-to place for fun), rallies, sports games, concerts, etc. The list goes on and on. PLUS, we're getting a FOOTBALL TEAM within the next year!!!!!! BRING IT ON!

    Food and Dining

    AWESOME dining hall. We got The Commons in 2010, and it has never disappointed. Even students with food allergies can find something tasty to eat there! And if not, the cooks are way cool that they will MAKE something for you! Sweet, huh? They are also environmentally aware. They collaborate with farmers and local growers for their food, and use water sparingly. Even the toilets have a system to cut down on water use! There are many stations- an Asian, ethnic, all-American, pizza/pasta, soul, greens/fruits, sandwich, all kinds! And then there are themes to the food stations- from Greek, to African, to Thai, and everything in between! Yum... seriously, good stuff.

    Dorm Life

    I commuted, so I don't have an opinion on this one. But my friends that lived on campus loved it. I have been inside them before (hanging out with friends), and they are very nice, especially the new ones. They are building even more now, since our attendance continues to explode, so I'm sure those will be state-of-the-art, environment-friendly like the other ones too! They will be available around Fall 2012, Summer 2013 I think.

    Academic Rigor

    They will challenge you, that's for sure. Yes there will be classes you don't care for, but every single one is there for your benefit, so make them count! I was a music major, and boy was I stretched!! They prepare you for the real world, in the classroom, and with opportunities outside of the classroom, in any degree you pursue- what more could you ask for?

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want the best education, take charge- if professors see you working hard, they will go to the ends of the earth for you. GO BY PROFESSORS' OFFICES!!!! Don't let I don't get it stand in the way of making a poor grade. Most students think it's sucking up to go the their office. It was the BEST thing I ever did, was to have relationships with my profs. Also, use your academic advisor. I knew too many people who chose not to, and got stuck just before graduation, making up classes they thought they took. And finally, plug in somewhere! You can always find a pocket of people with the same interests you do. Work hard, but have fun too!

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State is THE best kept secret ever; every degree program sets the student up to succeed. KSU is diverse, student body is awesome, professors are unparalleled in what they do. Lots of opportunity academically and socially, just look for it and plug in! :)

    There is really anything unusual, but you may bump into some interesting people.

    Bang for the buck

    Kennesaw is a bit of a penny pincher, but it's worth every dollar. The staff and faculty work hard to make sure your funds are used properly and that you don't spend or borrow more than you need.

    What to do for fun

    Fun is everywhere. Literally. You can have fun in the numerous media centers in the residency halls and through out campus buildings. There are always fun activities going on for all students. On your down time or between classes, you can have a little fun on the campus green playing frisbee, football, or participating at one of the many outdoor events.

    Food and Dining

    The Best. There are so many choices for food at great deals. They even have major restaurants on campus like Chik-fil-A.

    Dorm Life

    GREAT.! Every residence is just great. They're are four different buildings to choose from so your bond to find the perfect place to call home.

    Kennesaw State University is amazing in many different ways and not just academically.

    What to do for fun

    There are parties if you meet the right people, otherwise it may be hard as this is a commuter school and people are independent so live on campus. There is Kennesaw mountain, a mall, and many restaurants and bars. Kennesaw is getting a football program in 2014 and there is always intramurel sports

    Food and Dining

    The breakfast at the Commons is really good but the lunch is okay. The Commons is fairly new but is almost always crowded

    Dorm Life

    I live off campus but I know the on campus dorms and apartments are nice

    Academic Rigor

    Its a college. Some professors are great and others are downright awful.

    The academics is decent- nothing special. Some professors are great and will help you learn the material however others will not. It is a commuter school so meeting people can sometimes be difficult, Make sure to get involved through greek clubs, intramurels, or living on campus.

    Campus Safety

    Since I've been here, there have been few on-campus problems with safety. As soon as a problem arises, the KSU police are on it. There are constantly the KSU police and security riding around campus at all hours. It is a very safe campus and it is well patrolled.

    Greek Life

    It's not a well-known like West Georgia's Greek Life, but there are a ton of people that are in Greek Life associations.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a great number of activities and clubs here, but if a person wants once that hasn't yet been established, they have the opportunity to create any club or activity.

    Great for these types of students

    There are lots of sorority and fraterties around here it seems like. Poly Tech and Chattnooga Tech are also very close, so there is a great variety. Kennesaw is a very cityish place to live, so if you like the city, you'll love Kennesaw.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Kennesaw rents tents, hammocks, bikes, etc for free and people use those out on the green. People go to the campus green often to study. It's really nice there because people are socializing, relaxing, studying, and having a good time. It's best when the weather is nice

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition keeps going up because they are constantly renovating and building. Now, they're renovating the gym, building unnecessary new on-campus apartments, and they're also getting a football team. Because of this, tuition has gone up significantly. The football team and gym also won't be finished until after I graduate.

    What to do for fun

    Electric Cowboys, Marietta Square, campus green always has events

    Food and Dining

    Kennesaw is so proud of their food, but really, it's nothing great. It's very nice, pretty, and clean, but the food is average quality and it gets old fast.

    Dorm Life

    They have wonderful dorms. I live in University Place, which they have just expanded and built a number a brand new apartments. They are way over priced, but it's also extremely convenient to campus. The apartments are nice in University Place. University Villages is also nice, but majority of people living in that area are freshmen. KSU Place is the cheapest dorm living, but it doesn't have washer and dyers in the units, the beds are smaller, and you have to share a bathroom. It is also the farthest away from campus and is an older complex.

    Academic Rigor

    Kennesaw is known for being difficult in the sciences, which is 100% correct. Most classes are extremely fast paced, so if you get behind, you'll more than likely struggle. Most of the professors are wonderful though and want to help you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your homework and go to class, even if attendance isn't mandatory. College can be fun, but keep your priorities in check.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw is a very nice, clean campus with a wide diversity of students. The biggest downfall to Kennesaw is the fact that they make graduating impossible because majority of the advisers a. want you to fail b. don't care c. screw your classes up (DO NOT GO TO DEBRA PHILLIPS - biology adviser - she wants you to fail and is the worst adviser I've ever had.) Some of the professors truly care and want you to exceed, so they go out of their way to help you.

    Students that want to meet like minded people will definitely enjoy the campus at Kennesaw. There are so may different types of people that everyone can find a group to hang out with.

    What to do for fun

    Kennesaw's campus green is an enjoyable place for students to have fun outside with other students. Students will usually be playing ultimate frisbee or other sports. There is also the Student Center where many gamers may want to check out as their are locations used for computers as well as billards.

    Food and Dining

    The Commons at Kennesaw State University is known for being one of the nation's largest dining facilities for colleges. The Commons is a collection of global cuisine and a meeting and event space utilized by the entire Kennesaw community. Students also use The Commons as a place to study and work part time.

    Dorm Life

    Life in the dorms is very fun as everyone wants to meet new people. The dorm RAs plan fun events for people on their floors so that people can get to know each other better. The dorms are filled with people who just want to enjoy their lives on campus and conflicts are usually quickly resolved.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic parts of Kennesaw are filled with intelligent teachers. Some classes can be seen as quite difficult as teachers may not teach in a way you're use to, but the teachers that have taught me are all very knowledgeable in their respective fields of teaching. The academic advisors for fields of study know what kinds of classes are needed to complete your major and will try to create schedules for students to get them completed with their majors as fast as possible.

    Tips for prospective students

    For incoming students, I suggests exploring the campus as there as many interesting places at Kennesaw. Also, new students should definitely make a schedule to follow as getting distracted is quite easy on campus. Between the school work you'll have to do as well as maintaining a life on campus, it could be stressful. Also students should join a sports team or club as it's a great way to meet new people.

    You can go on The Green and play Frisbee or whatever game you want. Sometimes there a parties on campus hosted by RAs and other organizations. There are fashion shows, concerts and movie screenings. Just be on the lookout for flyers.

    Food and Dining

    There are a lot of places to eat on campus. The main cafeteria, The Commons, has about 7 choices but you have to catch it on it's good days. The best day to go is Thursdays. There is also THE HOOT that opens at 8:00pm by the dorms. There is chic-fila, Einstein bagels, coffee shops, sushi, and a sub station. But not all places take the meal plan.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is fantastic!! There is no curfew and no checking in visitors. There are RAs but some are pretty cool. There are always events to go to in the dorms that offer free food, activities and prizes. You should never be too bored, well except on weekends. Everyone tends to go home on the weekends. So if you don't have a car find a friend who does. :)

    Academic Rigor

    Honestly, it depends on your professor and how hard you are willing to work. Some professors can be laid back and will make class a breeze. Others will expect to you to work hard and study hard. Just pay attention in class, take notes and study and you should be fine. Just make sure you go to class because not going can really put you behind. Also make sure you take advantage of your professor's office hours.

    Tips for prospective students

    Join clubs that offer early registration because classes go very quickly. Also participate in all campus events. It is a great way to meet people and make friends. Take advantage of a professor's office hours. They can really help you and it lets them know you care about passing their class. Visit your adviser as much as possible. They are their to help you choose your classes and to make sure you are on the right track with your major. Lastly, make sure you are taking enough classes each semester to get all your credits.

    They have an emergency police number you can call and a regular one, and outside almost every building is an emergency phone, and if anything serious happens, like weather or a shooting or something along those lines, they send out a mass text to every student and staff member.

    From what I can tell they almost every type of club or activity you could think of, even scrabble club.

    What to do for fun

    I am not really sure since I am going into my first year there, but they can give you a huge list of events, and their homecoming week sounds really fun.

    The Commons is the main dining hall and it is nationally ranked in a magazine, at freshman orientation it was fantastic.

    Never had a problem with security or any type of crime even when walking around campus at the middle of night. The area is well lit and is sort of contained from the rest of the city of Kennesaw.

    Food at the campus dining hall, the Commons, is excellent and varied. Occasionally there are days when the food can be less tasty, but with such a large variety of stations to pick from, one is bound to find something that they like.

    Every dorm here provides students with their own private bedrooms. I didn't rate this section with 5 stars because I am a person that would rather commute than live on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    It really just depends on your professor. I've had math courses that I was anxious about taking, but had an excellent professor that made everything clearer. On the other hand, I got stuck with quite an opinionated English professor. Just make sure to study well and you'll be fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    Visit the campus by taking a guided tour and by walking around and exploring on your own. tour guides don't always show you everything so be sure to do some investigating on your own to get a whole picture.

    In three sentences

    A small sized campus with the resources of a larger university. Convenient and intellectually stimulating (depending on your professor of course). Overall a wonderful bang for your buck.

    Food and Dining

    Another excellent aspect about Kennesaw State University is out dining facilities. They are amazing! We have different vendors throughout the campus. Our main dining hall is called The Commons. Everybody has a meal plan and you enter and swipe your KSU student ID card. The Commons is a fancy buffet style where they offer you eight different food selections. From Asian, International foods, home cooked foods, pizza, salad bar, coffee bar, dessert bar, and American foods. I can only say so much, but it is something you have to see to believe.

    Dorm Life

    On campus living is excellent. Our freshmen dorms are better than most of the top schools in the country. There are no community bathrooms. If you do have to share a bathroom, you only share it with one other person. Everyone has their own room and a decent size closet. The on campus housing department offers many social events for students to develop social skills and build lasting friendship. I love the KSU Housing.

    Academic Rigor

    Kennesaw may not be an Ivy League school, but our programs are very competitive. We have the top Nursing and business program in the state. Professors are very willing to help you with questions or concerns you may have.

    Atlanta is so close that it's so easy to go to the city and explore. There are usually a lot of activities or events going on around campus as well as the area.

    The academics at Kennesaw are challenging enough, without being too overwhelming. Most classes are only twice a week so you are able to have weekends to catch up on homework or social life. We have many well-respected professors and staff on campus. All of which, are eager to teach their students.

    Kennesaw is a great school if you're looking for diversity because there are so many different types of people on campus. The campus is always alive and the atmosphere is incredibly welcoming. I would recommend this school to anyone.

    Kennesaw is such a safe area but they go the extra mile by sending emails in notice of safety hazards as well as automated phone calls.

    Greek Life

    Kennesaw doesn't have Greek housing which is a major downfall. They also don't have to many options for Greek life.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Every year Kennesaw celebrates KSU day where they have a huge festival on the campus green with prizes and games that everyone can enjoy!

    Bang for the buck

    While living on campus is expensive that is really the only thing that is not enough bang for the buck. Tuition is fairly cheep and the fees are not to bad.

    What to do for fun

    For on campus fun, most people go to the campus green and play some type of sport. The students at Kennesaw are very active and outdoorsy.

    Food and Dining

    Kennesaw caters to a wide variety of tastes from Asian, Mexican, Italian and vegetarian on a daily basis.

    Dorm Life

    Kennesaw has great programs for resident life. They make it easy and fun to get involved. The actual dorms are very large and nice compared to most colleges.

    Academic Rigor

    Kennesaw has a range of class rigor. I have taken extremely difficult classes that I was trying my absolute hardest in and got my first C ever. I have also taken classes that were a breeze so-to-speak where everyone basically got an A.

    Tips for prospective students

    You know yourself better than your advisors and parents with this being said, only sign up for as many classes as you know you can handle. Whatever you do don't take all the general requirement courses first, mix in harder classes so you don't get overwhelmed in the end with all tough classes. Also, pick a major as soon as possible so you don't risk taking classes you don't need

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State University has an ideal location because it is not too far from the city yet it doesn't have that hustle bustle feeling. The teachers are genuine and passionate about their work which is extremely important in aiding to one's learning experience. While the classes can be large, if you ask for individual help most teachers are more than willing.

    Campus Safety

    Every now and then I get an automated call, text, and email alerting me of any possible or potential dangers happening on or around KSU's campus. Although, when I receive these I am typically not on campus, it's really reassuring to know that KSU is so informative on these matter and helps me to feel safer when I'm there.

    Bang for the buck

    The resources here are countless. From the Wellness Center to the Writing Center and more, you really have no excuse to fail with everything offered here.

    What to do for fun

    The Green at KSU is a beautiful spot where you can find all sorts of activity most times throughout the day. There's almost always someone throwing a frisbee or kicking a soccer ball, and the bike club sets up a booth every now and then where they display all sorts of crazy hand-crafted custom bikes that ride around the green.

    Food and Dining

    The Commons at KSU is a great place to go swipe your ID card and grab some really great and healthy food. However, due to these health initiatives you'll find that some food can be lacking in flavor. But, the food is still good and still healthy! Of course, there are always alternatives such as Chick-fil-a, Einstein Bagel Bros, and many others on campus.

    Dorm Life

    I am actually a commuter, but from what I've seen and heard about our campus dorms, they are some of the best in the state. Everyone has their own room, and KSU seems to be constantly buying more property and building even more high-end dorms that are very current and up-to-date.

    Academic Rigor

    This isn't high school anymore... It's time to actually buckle down and study for your tests, don't write your 5 page papers the night before, and stay awake during class! If you're like me high school was a breeze and college can be too if you make the effort to adjust your habits. If not, that final will sneak up on you fast and you'll be unprepared and stressed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Register early! General Education courses can get snatched up quickly. So, if you want a good schedule make sure to take care of all of your registration holds quickly and have your classes picked out ahead of time! A first year counsellor can be really helpful if you need some direction.

    In three sentences

    KSU is a great school with many resources that can help propel your success here. They have a great campus that can be fun to walk around. Also, there are countless extra-curricular activities that really help to round out your college experience!

    Kennesaw State has a variety of extracurricular activites that the students are encouraged to participate in. The athletic teams at KSU are championship caliber and always offer activities that the students can interact with. The student life department does an excellent job of coordinating activities for the student population that stimulate participation.

    Food and Dining

    The culinary center at KSU serves the best food that I have ever eaten. I have been introduced to so many different menu items that I would not have been introduced to at any other institution. The dining hall is designed to accommodate all palates.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in the dorms but I have actually done a lot of research on the dorms. The newest dorms have an apartment feel in that the amenities are the same that you would get in an apartment. I would recommend dorm life to the younger students in that it will promote socialization.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are challenging but fair and always avail themselves to the students. Kennesaw is a stellar institution of learning without the inflated price. I have been able to soar to new heights academically and I owe it all to my instructors who have allowed me to reach my highest potential.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would recommend Kennesaw State to students that are looking for a top notch institution that has many things to offer. If you are looking for a school with many advantages for a great price then this is the place for you. Kennesaw is a wonderful institution of learning for older adults.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw is a wonderful institution of higher learning. The opportunities for older students is amazing and I would recommend KSU to any older adult planning to continue their education. Kennesaw has afforded me he opportunity to reach my goal.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are serious and they expect you to be serious about your education. And if you're not serious, there is a chance you'll flunk out because this school is not easy.

    Tips for prospective students

    Campus Safety

    The safety on Kennesaw State University's campus is truly unsurpassed in comparison to other colleges and universities. Not only are both local county, city, and University police constantly patrolling the campus on everything from bicycles to SUV's, but there are also emergency stations located on almost every corner of the campus, using extremely bright lights to provide constant directions to the nearest emergency buttons which activate emergency services to your location immediately. The security of all the campus buildings, offices, parking lots and decks is also incredibly well managed, providing dorm buildings with card-only accessibility, gated parking lots, police patrols throughout the entire campus at all hours, and an emergency alert texting system which notifies all students of any emergencies, missing people, or campus safety drills.

    Greek Life

    The Greek life at Kennesaw State University is not only extremely accessible to all incoming and current students, but also very well organized and constantly growing. The culminating aim of the numerous fraternities and sororities on campus is to destroy the bad reputation of college Greek life, providing clean, wholesome, and fellowship-friendly environments for students of similar backgrounds and interests to enjoy planning events, communicating with the student body, and often sponsoring or fundraising designed to promote the self-sufficient Greek life system on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    The social and academic clubs and organizations offered to Kennesaw State University students are not only extremely well organized and managed, but also provide excellent opportunities for the students of such a large institution to meet and form relationships with other students, connecting the entire student body in a very relational way. Kennesaw offers everything from intramural sporting activities, to religious and ethnic clubs, to international seminars, and to visual and musical artistic organizations. The University has truly perfected its ability to outreach and connect to the large amount of students who attend, as well as bringing a sense of unity to commuting, international, and working students who would normally not have such opportunities at other institutions of the size and magnitude of Kennesaw State University.

    Great for these types of students

    Kennesaw State University is an excellent school for students who are passionate about studying, seeking professors and staff who enjoy their responsibility to educate future leaders, for students who wish to have access to multiple University events and sports, a simple commute to anywhere in the surrounding Atlanta area, and for those who truly enjoy the benefits of hard work and studying. Kennesaw professors and courses are designed to grow those who are motivated to learn, inspire, and lead others. The campus is also extremely family friendly and compatible for all types of working and family members seeking a college education.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The lawn, as it is known to students familiar with the campus, is not only the center of the main Kennesaw University Campus, but also is traditionally the place with the most activity and events on any given day. Along with the numerous amount of students simply studying or resting along the perimeter of this relatively quiet area of campus, many local bands play on the lawn as their local venue, Greek life and student clubs host special events, and the student body as a whole has been known to conduct intramural activities and hire outside entertainment to be provided to students on the University lawn.

    Bang for the buck

    In terms of academic quality, students truly receive the quality education they are paying for, yet at an affordable price. Kennesaw State University is also very cooperative to transferring students, providing credit for the majority of other college or university equivalent courses.

    What to do for fun

    The Kennesaw area has multiple well known restaurant chains, as well as many locally owned businesses and services to take advantage of in terms of things-to-do. Visiting the conveniently located Town Center Mall provides a very clean, safe environment to shop and eat. Also available and close-by to students living on campus are the school sporting events, including state-of-the-art fields, stadiums, and courts designed to provide a great all-around experience to bother young and old athletic fans alike.

    Food and Dining

    The dinning services at Kennesaw State University uphold excellent standards in terms of food preparation, presentation, and quality. In comparison to other Universities, Kennesaw dining goes above and beyond the required specifications, providing quality food and service throughout the entire academic year. The food itself is never tasteless, over-cooked, or dissatisfying.

    Dorm Life

    Although I am a commuting student, I have multiple friends and acquaintances who reside in dorms at Kennesaw State University, and I have only heard great things about the condition of the units, neighbors, and services within the dorms. All of the dorm options on campus are extremely spacious, in excellent condition, and are nearly flawless in terms of aesthetics.

    Academic Rigor

    Kennesaw State University is not an easy college in terms of academia by any standards. However, like most large universities, Kennesaw also employs professors who are more focused upon providing busy work in order to advance their own research than educating the students. I have only personally encountered this once however, and it should not be considered an adequate reflection of the rigor of the University.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would advise future students to study a map of the campus in order to have a general idea of buildings and classes in relation to their location and classes. I would also advise weekly meetings with each professor in order to establish a grounded student-teacher relationship. I would advice upperclassmen to consider commuting in order to save on living expenses and have the ability to work part-time off campus.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State University is a great school for commuters, study-abroad students and very technologically interactive. The campus itself is extremely clean, well staffed, and contains well qualified and dedicated professors in each field. The school does a fantastic job at making everything very accessible and student-friendly.

    Campus Safety

    You're protected. Trust me, security is the LEAST of your worries here.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life isn't really that heavy up here, unless you have the funds or enjoy that sort of thing, you'd probably be better off joining a sports team or a club.

    Bang for the buck

    You definitely get what you pay for. Just be aware of the things that you are paying for, that you may not be taking advantage of such as a personal trainer, dietician, tutors, and even starting your own group or club!

    What to do for fun

    If you're planning on living on campus, you're almost guaranteed to have something to do. Your RAs should keep you busy and if you keep check your student email often, which you should, you will be alerted about a plethora of events you and even your family/friends from home can attend !

    Tips for prospective students

    Sign up for housing early, pick out a decent meal plan, and make friends as often as you can!

    KSU is very diverse. It teaches you to be academically and personally independent. It also teaches you to be organized and how to stay on top of things that are significant to you.

    Campus Safety

    Ultimately I feel safest on campus. There are always RA's on call every night for any problems or disturbances in housing. Just walking to class of driving in to park. There are always KSU Police at the ready for any problems that may arise.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The Campus Green I have to say is always the place with the most people when there are events. So far, the Farmers Market is on the green every single Wednesday. There has been a few block parties there and fun festivities always offering FREE stuff.

    What to do for fun

    There is always something on campus to do. There are events posted on the website for almost everyday. For example, the was a screen on the green event twice in the first month of school. The Greeks are always hosting something somewhere. If not them, once you're a student here, you are bound to meet students just like you who are also always looking for things to do. The Res-Life here are always creating new events for everyone to come together. If all else fails, Bob (our school shuttle bus) will take you to Town Center Mall or Town Point where you can shop. Everything is close-by. Oh and the CCT bus system does come on campus if Bob cant get you where you're trying to go.

    Food and Dining

    The KSU Commons has won awards for its awesomeness. Kennesaw has their own land where they grow all of the foods cooked in the commons in support of sustainability. The Commons has to be the largest and most diverse place to eat on campus. If not the commons, there's the HOOT is the place to be. It's the most convenient place to eat because it's right in the housing quarters. Also in the student center, there's chick-fila and other restaurants.

    Dorm Life

    The apartments are awesome. In every apartment everyone has their very own room and adequate amount of space to do as they please. All of the appliances a person needs are readily accessible. On campus living is the most convenient ever. It only takes about 10 minutes to get anywhere on campus from any of the housing arrangements. Kennesaw also has the best Res-Life around, always there to get everyone informed and connected with events and fun times.

    Academic Rigor

    All together i can say that the classes are not too hard or complex. The discussions and lectures are challenging and relate to everyday situations usually to lave you with something to think about. Study, study, study, that's the most important thing. The work may be easy to understand but not all of that easy to interpret. A lot of information is taught in every class. So its important to read ahead and stay connected or you will surely fall behind.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take college seriously. Honestly there's a large amount of money going in to your attendance of school. This is your own personal investment, make everything count. Be on time, this really shows the professor your determination. The sooner the your professor learns your name/face the better your chances of success.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State is a clean, sustainable environment always looking for new ways to move forward. Everything on/off campus are all very easily accessible and walking distance. The diversity on campus is amazing. Everyone you meet are always friendly and the living is awesome.

    Campus Safety

    KSU police patrol the campus very often. If crime does occur, they send out an email, text, and phone calls. They keep students updated as well.

    Greek Life

    Our greek life is very popular. We just added the Kappa Delta sorority. We do not have greek houses but they still have events on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is literally a club on campus for anything you can think of. I was part of one of the athletic clubs and had a lot of fun. I made a lot of friends, played games, and hung out with them anytime we were not in class. I would definitely recommend joining something.

    Great for these types of students

    There are coffee shops located in several of the buildings so you can be energized to study all day and night. There is also a separate gym for students that play club or intramural sports.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We don't have any unusual traditions really. There is one fraternity that will wear a pin on either their clothes or their bookbag for a week. If you point it out, they are required to get on one knee and sing to you in front of everyone.

    Bang for the buck

    Hang out in the student center or on the campus green in between classes to meet new friends and to join clubs or organizations. People are very friendly there and always willing to help.

    What to do for fun

    There are lots of clubs/organizations. We have a lot of sporting events to go to. There is something to do either on campus or close by.

    Food and Dining

    The food is some of the best food I have ever had. Certain times of the day it is very crowded and it is hard to find a table to eat at.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live on campus, but I have lots of friends that do. The rooms are very nice and you meet lots of people. The rules aren't too strict but they are reasonable.

    Academic Rigor

    As long as you study and do your work, you will have good grades.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not procrastinate and do not be afraid to ask for help.

    Campus Safety

    There are many emergency buttons all over campus. And the KSU police are always available. If anything unusual happens every student receives an email telling them to be on the look out. Saftey is really important to the school and it shows.

    Greek Life

    Always have the best parties!

    Clubs and Activities

    Many different clubs to choose from and join. And if you cant find something, gather a group and make one! Campus sponsored activities aren't hard to come upon. Just sign in and enjoy!

    Great for these types of students

    Kennesaw State University has a little something for everyone, and anyone who attends will find something great about it.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition is a good price for the school. The only thing is there are fees that add up eventually. If you live on campus that is another extra expense. The school makes up for all of the money with the things it gives back, like free events and things.

    What to do for fun

    The school offers many events to attend, and there are a lot of off campus businesses to go to if you have a way there. Parties are limited, but you can make the most of them with friends.

    Food and Dining

    On campus food is good, but it may get tiring after awhile. The commons has a lot of choices to choose from on certain days of the week. There are also other little restaurants in some buildings that can replace going to the commons all of the time, but that takes extra money. The food is definitely satisfying for a college student.

    Dorm Life

    Every on campus dorm is like the Ritz Carlton compared to other colleges. Yes rent might be expensive, but it is completely worth it. You have everything you need available to you and tons of personal space.

    Academic Rigor

    It depends on your class types and major. The difficulty ranges, but in the long run it is good place to further your education.

    Tips for prospective students

    All the professors are completely different, so be ready for anything. Some classes can be completely 'high school easy' and others will take a lot of work and study time. But study time is super important anytime.

    In three sentences

    I love it here. The campus is beautiful and most everyone is friendly and open to make new friends. There are a lot of events for students to attend and opportunities for free stuff! Complete Awesomeness!

    Campus Safety

    Kennesaw is a safe area. It's a great location and campus police are friendly, but they get the job done. Talking to an officer is great because they make you feel safe and let you know they're here for our safety. They are usually retired officers from all over so they know what they are doing. There are also RAD self defense classes available for those who want extra security.

    Greek Life

    My roommate is pledging, and she enjoys it. She's met quite a few people from it and I think she has no regrets. Our Greeks are deeply involved in service, but then again so is the entire KSU family. Make sure you check the fraternity and sorority website for more details.

    Clubs and Activities

    The diversity of clubs and activities is frustrating because it's no way you can do them all. There's something for everyone and if not, it's easy to start. We even have a paintball team!

    Great for these types of students

    Kennesaw is great for ALL types of students. It's still transitioning from being a commuter school, so those who like tradition may want to consider somewhere else. Or, they can do as our new club does and start tradition! The motto of the new club KSU Black and Gold is tradition begins here. Academically, KSU is great for all types of students that want to further themselves and not only get a degree, but get a career after college.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Our homecoming this year is for volleyball instead of the usual basketball (we're still working on getting a football team.) If you see the big round circles on the ground near the Village and the Village Suites, go to the center and clap. (Not every time, but what happens next is a sort of cool surprise.) We're currently getting ready for Monster Ball at the end of October! Make sure you explore the hidden nooks and crannies on campus, like the gazebo near the Social Sciences building. Visit for more traditions!

    Bang for the buck

    Depending on where you're coming from, it may or may not seem expensive. I'm from Georgia, so the in state tuition and Zell Miller scholarship helped me out. This school is worth the money if you take advantage of everything you pay for. Check you're OWL express account and look at the balances. You'll see that you pay for certain fees that most people might overlook. Go to the gym, talk to your RA, attend the workshops that interest you, and excel in your classes. Now is the most important time than ever to take advantage of your education, because you're paying for it. At Kennesaw, they try to give you plenty of opportunities to get bang for your buck.

    What to do for fun

    There is literally always something going on around campus. There is also some type of workshop, fitness class, cookout, or anything you can imagine. There are plenty of clubs to join. Students get points for going to sporting events which eventually add up to prizes. If you know the right people, the party scene is fantastic. This is not at all a party school, but all I will say is there are plenty of opportunities to party.

    Food and Dining

    The Commons was nationally ranked or something like that, and the food is really good. Don't be afraid to try some of the different eateries. The dessert round-about is amazing, so make sure you know where the gym is. And if you every get tired of the whole burgers, fries, and pizza routine, there are other options in the Commons as well as outside. The Peace Cafe in the University Village Suites is really really really good. They can get pricey, but it is worth it. The Hoot is located in University Village and is very popular for late night eating. It's quick, they accept meal plan swipes, and everything I've had from there is good. There are also places around that give discounts with your campus ID like Wendy's, Waffle House and etc. There are plenty of options, and I don't have any complaints.

    Dorm Life

    I LOVE my apartment. I'm in University Village, a freshman dorm, and the word dorm is an understatement. It's basically an apartment with a kitchen, furniture in the common area, and everyone gets their own bathroom. The Village Suites are slightly more traditional college style with a kitchen for the entire floor, residents share a bathroom, but they get their own room. The only problem that I hear students complain about is the wifi. Overall, I recommend looking at ksuhousing.com and visiting the school in person.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are challenging because they wake you up to a whole new experience. It's a completely different style of teaching than most high school students are used to and requires a different type of studying. It might be hard to learn exactly what you need to understand or study from a lecture, but professors are understanding. If you make an effort in class, read the syllabus, and talk to the professor with any concerns, you should do fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you have a clear way to pay for things. Consider work study, getting a job, or do as many scholarships as possible. It's a lot more expensive than you think! If you go to the Waffle House late at night (which I'm sure you will) speak to Ms. Regina. And the wifi here isn't that great in residential areas. Visit somebody's dorm to get a real experience before making a decision about where you live. Find someone who's already been here to guide you. Get informed and get involved. You won't regret it.

    In three sentences

    This is a great school depending on what you're looking for. The professors and students alike are GREAT. All in all, you're experience is what you make it.

    Compared to other universities their size, Kennesaw is not an expensive school. You get your money's worth.

    I go to Kennesaw for classes and that's about it since I don't live on campus. But they are always throwing events and fun activities.

    The commons has a great selection of food. I always tend to find myself though going for the grilled cheese! It is just something so simple yet they make it so yummy!

    I do not live in a dorm, however I hear it is great.

    Campus Safety

    There are campus police who aren't only KSU police but Cobb County police as well, so they can do everything that a regular officer does. There are many emergency posts around campus in case of trouble, and the campus is well lit at night. I have never felt unsafe here at campus.

    Greek Life

    The Greek Life is definitely growing here. There was just a new sorority added this year, 2012. Take advantage of the opportunity. I have had friends who love it and some who don't. It's all what you make of it.

    Clubs and Activities

    I am involved in several clubs and they are so easy and fun to keep up with! get involved and especially get involved in one of the many Christian organizations here. There are so many to choose from and they all love the Lord.

    Great for these types of students

    Anyone who wants to be in a diverse environment with international students and who want the options of submerging themselves in either the small town feel or the city life all at the same time.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I don't know of any strange or unusual traditions here at campus. I will look out for them though!

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition is never a fun thing to talk about, but Kennesaw hasn't had a huge problem (for me) with tuition. Definitely apply for scholarships! As far as what you get for your money... Kennesaw is definitily an experience that you won't regret. I have learned so much about myself and about different cultures and people while being here at such a diverse and growing campus.

    What to do for fun

    You are right outside of Atlanta so obviously there is the city for checking out and having a good time. However, you also have Kennesaw Mountain and you are close to the North Georgia mountains, so take advantage of the diverse options! There is so much to see and do!

    Food and Dining

    Who doesn't love the Commons? You have a ton of food t your disposal, with a Starbucks-like coffee station, salad/sandwich bar, home cooking, international food, and more! Again, who doesn't love the Commons?

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is amazing! The dorms here are top-notch and nationally ranked, so you know you have it good. You get your privacy but at the same time you are pushed to make connections and meet new people. The Res. Life and RA's are interested in making your time here in the dorms the best possible and work with you to make that happen.

    Academic Rigor

    The college used to be a community college when it first started. In transition to the larger university, I think some of the rigor still needs establishing. That being said, I notice the difficulty of many classes here at the university and can honestly say that Kennesaw is challenging its students more and more to think outside the box and challenge themselves to do better in academics and wellbeing.

    Tips for prospective students

    Kennesaw may be growing super fast and it may feel like it is easy to slip behind in the crowd, but people are making good grades everyday. Don't be afraid to utilize the facilities and the faculty to help you stay afloat. The faculty appreciate that you care enough to ask and the facilities are an amazing help. Also, take advantage of the cultural events (specifically the international events). It is awesome to see different countries be presented by the students and really come to life on the campus.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw is an amazing university that is growing in leaps and bounds. The teachers are as helpful and available as they can be, but of course that is harder in the large classes. Seeing the university grow in the student life, diversity, campus and community is pretty neat to experience.

    Campus Safety

    This campus is very prepared for whatever comes its way. The KSU police have their own system that sends out mass texts and phone calls should anything be happening- this alerts students where to go and what to do. If anything happens during class, the police are able to hack into the computer base system at the university and post what is going on for the professors and class to see.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is well on its way to developing and growing more and more every semester. There are a handful of both sororities and fraternities to choose from if you decide to. They do not have greek life housing however.

    Clubs and Activities

    KSU student life has got it going on! With Volunteer KSU, Kennesaw Activities Board, and Student Life -- there is something for everyone here to plug into and find your niche.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The campus green is at the center of campus. The grass is taken better care of there than any other spot. This is because it is a large beautiful circular field surrounded with a brick laid frame, trees, and park benches. This is where students hang out, play frisbee, hang in hammocks, or do their homework. It is the center of life on campus.

    What to do for fun

    KSU is located about 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta- so that should speak for itself. There are also plenty of shopping areas, restaurants, movie theaters, and hiking trails located just miles from campus. There is a lot that goes on on campus depending on what you decide to get involved in.

    Food and Dining

    I only wish that KSU had another place on campus exactly like The Commons. At The Commons, organic and locally grown foods are cooked and served. There are numerous options to eat from such as italian, salad bar/sandwiches, home cooking, the grill, and asian and world food. There are also some killer desserts. The food is healthy, considering other college dining options. KSU is working on getting a phase II built with other options for eating similar to The Commons.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms at KSU are top notch! For freshman dorms you have your own room, kitchen area, and only have to share a bathroom with your one roommate. They are well cared for and the residents life is well trained and does a great job making campus living fun and joyful.

    Academic Rigor

    The academia at KSU is great at offering a wide selection of courses as students come in figuring out what major they want to pursue. The professors know what they are doing and have a great background in the major they are teaching in.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep an open mind as you come into this University setting. The professors do a great job working with you as you figure out what path in life you want to take. They understand the pressure, and help make it as easy as possible for you. Plug into the many student life opportunities so that you can meet friends that will last you a lifetime.

    Kennesaw State University is a beautiful place where you can further your education at a higher level.

    Kennesaw State's main dining area is the Commons. It's buffet style and there are a lot of options. They have everything from southern food, to vegan and organic food. There's something for everyone. Also, the Commons is a campus dining award winner. There are a lot of other places to eat on campus besides the commons. There's delis, coffee shops, and on the go food places.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms on campus are expensive, but they're worth it. There's always events and the RA's are great.

    Academic Rigor

    A lot of the classes are challenging, but if you study, and do the work you will succeed. There are a lot of smaller classes, so you won't just be a number in your class. Most of the professors are very helpful.

    Campus Safety

    There is the Kennesaw State University Police who are always on campus. They not only check for parking, but are also there to prevent crime! The campus is gated, and since my starting here, I have yet to hear about anything bad happening on campus.

    Greek Life

    Although I am unaffiliated, the Greek system seems to have a very positive affect on campus. They have tons of open events, and you never hear any negative comments about their activities like you might else where. They are active on campus, which is great way to have the campus seem more bonded.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are tons of clubs on campus! It's very easy to find something that interest you and something that fits your schedule.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for those students who like to be outside or those who like to always have something to do. There are plenty of places around campus to study, hangout, or just relax. As for events, there is always plenty of things going on, even outside of greek life.

    Bang for the buck

    You pay for a small collage, yet get a huge university feel. You are surrounded by people and so much to do, but you are only pay that a little higher than local collages. The professors are great, just like the campus.

    What to do for fun

    Mostly, I love to hang out on the green! It is a great place to meet new people, play frisbee, or just relax between classes. Its also a perfect place for studying consider campus is surrounded by WI FI. I also love to stay involved in different clubs and work out at the gym on campus.

    Food and Dining

    I LOVE the food. They have a great food court where some of the food is even locally grown! They try to use as many local vendors as possible. The food court also has tons of options! There are plenty of other places to eat on campus as well though, which are all conveniently located around campus.

    Dorm Life

    I did not live in a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    All of the teachers are very well qualified in their fields. They have all of the difficult majors (Math, Chemistry, Biology), and the professors in these fields are wonderful. The classes are challenging, as they should be considering it is college.

    Tips for prospective students

    My main tips would be 1. Tour the Campus. You will fall in love! 2. Get to know your professors. It really will help when you don't understand the material, are falling behind, or just need someone to come back to later on. 3. Talk to students on campus. They will be the ones who know the most about the campus and can help you determine if Kennesaw is right for you (It Is!).

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw has a beautiful campus with tons of activities and events going on all the time. All of the teachers and staff are qualified, patient, and extremely helpful; I have already seen an adviser and a staff person at the main offices who both helped with my questions. Overall, I think that any student would love the atmosphere that Kennesaw provides with its combination of academics, athletics, and community.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Not that I am aware of.

    Bang for the buck

    KSU is not very expensive and you get what you pay for.

    What to do for fun

    There are countless activities to do while on and around KSU. There are sporting events to both watch and participate in.

    Food and Dining

    The dining hall is brand new! It has a great variety of food on a daily bases, but there is not enough places to sit during the busy lunch times (12-2).

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are wonderful and very effective but the cost is very high, especially if you realize that you're only paying a 4th of the rent for your on-campus apartment.

    Academic Rigor

    It depends on the classes that you are taking but the academic rigor for most general education classes is in the middle.

    Tips for prospective students

    Use ratemyprofessor.com before registering for any general education class. Make sure that you come up with multiple class schedules when registering in order to prevent getting stuck with a schedule that you are unhappy with.

    Food and Dining

    There are many food options on campus, and they have one of the top dining areas in the US. They actually have been ranked higher than Harvard's dining area. My personal favorite would be On the Fly because I can get it to go and still enjoy a healthy nutritious meal!

    Dorm Life

    I live off campus about 10 minutes away from campus, but I have a few people that I know that live on campus, and they have all said how top notch, nice, and convenient they are.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses I am currently enrolled in are pretty difficult because they are for my nursing major.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay focused because the professors really make you earn your A. They truly care about each one of their students and strive hard to enstill the very best characteristics in their students!

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State's Campus and atmosphere is amazing and probably one of the most breath taking, scenic views during all seasons. The professors are truly caring and the staff that works there is very helpful in helping students make sure that everything is in order and complete. I feel at home every time I am on Kennesaw State's campus and I would not have chosen any other university to get my Bachelor of Science!

    Campus Safety

    I always feel safe when I am on campus. They have many safety spots that are located throughout the campus, so if something does happen be sure that you know where these are located. At the beginning of the school year, the RA's gave us the number to KSU police.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life is big on our campus, but not too big to where you feel pressured to join any of them. But if that's something you have always wanted to do I would definitely recommend that.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs that you could join that would fit your personality. There are over 300 student groups. Homecoming week and Get in Gear week is very popular among the students.

    What to do for fun

    there are over 300 students groups here so definitely get involved with those. We have many events that these student groups host. One of the bigger events is homecoming week and that is when some celebrities come and perform for our school.

    Food and Dining

    Most people who live on campus eats at a place called the hoot and it is really good, it's basically like a quick takeout. If you eat between classes you can eat in the commons and boy they have a large variety of food. IF you want to eat healthy or something bad they have it all there.

    Dorm Life

    the first week or so of school is when we have something going on everyday. Anything to watching a movie on the green or just a dance. This school wants everyone to have a good time so they put a lot of money into such events. The dorms are awesome. You don't have to share a room or even better, you don't have to share bathrooms.

    Academic Rigor

    Most of the classes I have taken have been very rigorous. The professors don't let you slack off and if you keep missing class your grade will definitely show it. Kennesaw State offers many hybrid and online classes, you should definitely take advantage of that.

    Tips for prospective students

    Check with your financial aid status daily to ensure that you get all of the money needed before school starts. If you live on campus, make sure you never stay locked up in the dorm. Kennesaw State makes sure we have a lot of events so you can start making friends quickly.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State University is a great school. They definitely want the students who live on campus to have a great experience. The students and faculty has always been so nice to me.

    Campus Safety

    Campus is in a relatively safe part of the metro Atlanta area and have little crime sprees. The crimes that have been committed are reported quickly and usually absolved just as quickly.

    Great for these types of students

    -Returning to school for a second time -Work full time -Have children -Need to commute to save money -Have retired and are interested in classes

    Bang for the buck

    Kennesaw is cheaper than most schools and if you are from Georgia and can utilize the HOPE scholarship, it makes it worth it. There are excellent teaching, nursing, and an upcoming business program for those majors. Most of the liberal arts majors are a solid undergraduate education especially if you are looking to go beyond just your bachelor's degree. I paid pretty cheap for my books and have minimum expenses beyond tuition.

    What to do for fun

    Fun is relative to the person--there are always speakers or movies to be seen on campus. Campus activities are pretty high but advertising is often quite minimal so you have to know where to look and who to ask to discover your options. Clubs, sports and events are always available if you go looking for fun. If not, the mall and lots of shopping and food places are nearby. Clubs and bars are at a minimum and concerts are more likely to be in downtown Atlanta, a shot off 75 near campus.

    Food and Dining

    The Dining Hall is decent but relatively expensive and if you are not used to the whole campus seems far from buildings like the English and Social Sciences building. There are plenty of other options like delis, coffee shops, a Chik-fil-A, an Einstein's, and other food trucks come near campus to vary your food options. Dining Hall is your cheapest long-term option though.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live on campus, but I have friends that lived on campus that spend most of their weekends at home or visiting friends at other schools. Most kids live off campus in apartments near the school so I recommend being prepared for an alternate college experience.

    Academic Rigor

    Kennesaw has both difficult and easy teachers; you simply need to do a little research to find challenging teachers in subjects that interest you and maybe more generalized teachers in difficult subjects or subjects you are not as interested in.

    Tips for prospective students

    Work on your time management skills. Ask questions if you take a tour at Kennesaw. Practice your essay writing. Do not take all of your Core class requirements in the first two years--spread it out so you do not overwhelm yourself as a junior and senior.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw is a different kind of school than your average college with cheaper fees, more varies students and excellent faculty members. Kennesaw has been a blessing in disguise for my college experience and it is definitely worth checking out. Having adult college student friends to 18-year-old traditional college students as peers helps grow me as a person and widen my perspective on the world.

    Campus Safety

    The security is always about and makes sure that the campus is secure. They monitor parking deck entrances and have bycicle officers that roam around. They also have telephone stations for an immediate contact to campus security if anyone was in danger. There are many safety classes and self defense classes available to students and they will email, text, and call students to let them know of any campus related emergencies such as a fire or chemical spill near by so that students are aware of any dangers around campus.

    What to do for fun

    There are many club sports and recreational sports that are an amazing way to meet new people and enjoy the nice weather. There are plenty of parties about the college for certain events such as the Halloween party. There are plenty of fraternities and sororities to join and meet people and they each have special events. There isn't a time where you will be bored if you are on campus with some friends.

    Food and Dining

    One of the great things about KSU is their food and dining. The commons is in the middle of campus and is really nice. All you can eat buffet of anything from sushi to pasta and pizza to burgers and sloppy Joe's. They have certain foods for certain days too. On Fridays the Asian kiosk makes Sushi rolls. On Sundays, the dessert station makes Sundays. It's always a place to eat and is a nice little hang out with booths and table for plenty.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live on campus but from what I hear, the dorms are fairly nice. There is a new housing option just slightly off campus that has great rooms. However I commute to school and thus wouldn't know too much.

    Academic Rigor

    One thing that you will have to get used to as a new college student is teaching yourself the material. With a fifty minute chemistry class, there was only time to learn the most important equations and procedures. Often, there were other key equations that we would have to learn from the book. Though KSU may not be as rigorous as Georgia Tech, it was still a new inviroment and is not for the lazy.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you have decided a major, double check your schedule with your adviser because you may not have signed up for the proper classes during orientation. Be social and meet people; they will help you study and grow as a person through out your college experience. Never be a stranger and be sure to use all your meals from your meal plan; many people had more than ten left over each semester.

    In three sentences

    Very nice and social people. No need to be a stranger and the teachers love to help students. There are also many student resources that will help students advance in their major or be more active in sports and the community.

    Academic Rigor

    KSU offers a wide selection of curse programs. However, if you are interested in more specialized areas of study (or gradate school for that matter), you might want to seek other schools specially tailored to your specific career goals.

    Campus Safety here is number one! While walking on campus I always see security driving around or on their bikes. It makes me feel completely safe. There are also posts all over campus with buttons that can call the campus security and they will be there as fast as they can to assist an emergency.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life may have little options to choose from, but they are all fantastic! Greek life are always helping other organizations and even each other. They promote their selves in positive ways!

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many choices for a person to make! All the clubs and organizations are well known and get their name out there in a positive way.

    Great for these types of students

    Every student! Kennesaw State is very diverse and holds many different kinds of people with all sorts of personalities.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The only thing I could consider 'unusual' would be different types of protests they have on the Campus Green. The Green holds many different events and 'parties' from things such as free doughnuts, to an inflatable bouncy house!

    Bang for the buck

    As hard as college is, it is also the best time a person will have in their life. Kennesaw State offers that experience at such a well performance and it will never be an experience I will ever forget!

    What to do for fun

    The city Kennesaw has many options for people to have fun. There are bars for those who are of age, many different restaurants to go out to eat, and the mall is right down the road! Getting involved with an organization on campus brings out many opportunities that will also insure fun with different events that they host on the green or in the University Rooms.

    Food and Dining

    There are many options at Kennesaw! The Hoot, the Commons, Chick Fil A, Boars Head, and many more. Almost everything can be used with the swipe of your student ID but if you do not feel like using up swipes, you can pay with cash or card. Everything is top of the line and you will never leave unsatisfied!

    Dorm Life

    Kennesaw has dorms available at all times and the RAs are very helpful! There seems to always be something going on but it will never keep you up when you need to sleep. Dorm life is something that I recommend to everyone.

    Academic Rigor

    I have never made below an 'A' in high school but when I got to Kennesaw state I made my first 'B'. It's definitely taught me that I cannot get through college without studying and studying hard! The hard work will pay off!

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips for prospective students is to keep checking your Ga View Vista, now will be Desire2Learn, at least three times a day and their student emails. Also, study hard and get involved! It's the best way to have a successful academic career

    Although I have been attending for only a short amount of time, I would say Kennesaw State is an amazing school! I have had no problems getting connected with people if I had a problem, and most things are clearly stated on their web page. Kennesaw is also very accessible and I love the fact that it's such a close knit community.

    What to do for fun

    I participate in almost all of the activities and events they have planned. My dorm sponsors a lot of events because they want us freshmen to have fun with one another. I join different organizations and clubs just to stay busy. I also go to the gym with friends to stay healthy.

    Food and Dining

    There is a lot of variety at the Commons. They have omelettes, biscuits with gravy, sausages or bacon, hash browns, fruit, yogurt, and grits for breakfast. For lunch, they have burgers, pizzas, chicken wings, vegetables, and vegan dishes. Remember freshman fifteen is no joke!

    Dorm Life

    Awesome! I live in the University Village Suites and I feel spoiled. It's like $500 a month, but it's worth it! You have your own bedroom and share bathroom and kitchenette. The laundry room, study areas, and entertainment areas are shared between all the residents.

    Academic Rigor

    It really depends on the class you take and which teacher you choose.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go to RateMyProfessor.com to determine the professor that will interest you more. You should always go to the professors' offices if you need help. They are there for you!

    Dorm Life

    I've visited my friends in dorms and it seems really nice. I just don't live on campus because I feel I live too close.

    Academic Rigor

    It varies; I remember my ENGL 1101 class was way easier than the equivalent high school course, AP Language and Composition. In contrast, I struggled through CHEM 1211, but in high school I breezed through Chemistry.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for all the scholarships you can; Kennesaw even has its own college specific scholarships. Figure out who your counselor is ASAP and schedule a meeting with them. They can answer all of your questions and save you from taking classes you don't need. You don't have to live on campus to get the full college experience. I commute 30 minutes to class and I still can participate in events on campus and hang out with all of my friends.

    In three sentences

    I don't think I could has chosen a better, cheaper, or closer college for my intransitive degree. The student body is very diverse, which is nice because it exposes me to interesting people I've never met before. I have made tons of friends easily since everyone is so nice and the professors really care; the class sizes are not that much of a bother since they are a pretty reasonable size and it hasn't distracted my learning.

    Greek Life

    Kennesaw State does offer Greek Life for those that are interested!

    What to do for fun

    There is a lot to do on and around the campus. KSU offers a gym, sorority/fraternity thrown parties (always approved by the school in the student center), and entry to home athletic games for free. There is even more to to around campus! Towne Center Mall is less than 5 minutes away and the B.O.B (Big Owl Bus) also provides transportation there. There are plenty of shopping plazas, places to eat, Mountasia (they offer putt-putt golf and other things), a bowling ally, three near by movie theaters, a skating rink, and an ice rink all within about 10 minutes or less from the school.

    Food and Dining

    The Commons offers great food for any special diet you may have. The offer pizza, salads, homemade dishes, oriental style food, food from around the world, and even tofu! The Commons posts full descriptions of what they serve near the food so you never have to question rather your food has things such as gluten in the dish. Entry in to The Commons require one swipe per person which is included in tuition. There are many places to eat on campus that require cash or credit/debit card payments including a Chick-Fil-A, Eisenstein's Bagels, a sub shop and another coffee shop. KSU has also just recently allowed food vendors to bring food trucks to campus.

    Dorm Life

    In 2009 I lived in the freshman housing and it was pretty decent. They kept everything clean in the building and their were monthly fire drills. KSU housing department tends to have events for students living there,for example: movie nights, parties, and casino night, so I would defiantly recommend freshman trying to find their way on their own and in college live on campus. If you do not wish to live on campus, there are many college style housing located around the campus that the B.O.B (Big Owl Bus) provides transportation to and from school.

    Academic Rigor

    As stated before, many of the teachers work in the field that they are teaching, for example, my psychology teacher worked as a lawyer on her days off from school. I feel this is important because the books are not always updated to what the right now is, so with them actually being out there, they can update us and bring in real life examples.

    Tips for prospective students

    The teachers aim to help their students, DO NOT be afraid to ask questions! If you are a shy individual, each teacher sets aside office hours, where they allow you to talk to them on more privately, and there's always the email option. Remember for any college you may get accepted to, YOU ARE PAYING THEM! Use every opportunity to get the service you are paying for, do not let your money go to waste. Surround yourself with positivity when you get to college. Things can get stressful!

    In three sentences

    KSU offers many opportunities to meet friends and they have a great selection of food in the Commons, it is buffet style. Their teachers are knowledgeable about their subject, many currently working in fields related to the course so they tend to update information that is not yet in the books.

    The commons is a new addition that was added several years back, but it is the BEST! In the commons there are 7 different restaurants all at your disposal and all you can eat. They have a different menu every day so you will never get bored, and they are open for breakfast lunch and dinner.

    Dorm Life

    They just got done adding a ton of on campus living. They are brand new and modern, absolutely amazing. Not to mention the fact of the experience that you gain by living on campus and all the new friends you will make.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers are great, but the work is very involved. There are a lot of group projects and real world situations that they put you in so that you are better prepared when you graduate. The work is tough so be prepared to earn your grades.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved. That is the biggest thing I can recommend. They have so many different groups and activities to be involved in that it would be a shame for you to miss out.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw is a great school with many opportunities for growth and development. They have a spectacular international program as well as a wonderful business college. The faculty and staff are amazing and have a knack for incorporating real life scenarios into their teaching.

    Campus Safety

    KSU, like many other college campuses, is equipped with its own police force, that works in conjunction with surrounding Cobb County police. Emergency boxes are everywhere as well, just in case, and the KSU police do provide escort service, especially for all the ladies out there at night time who would rather have peace-of-mind when traveling back to their dorms. Overall, the campus is quite safe and the police response to any issues is within minutes.

    Greek Life

    I do not have much experience with the Greek life on campus, but I do know that one drawback is that no common houses for each Fraternity or Sorority are allowed at KSU. If you expected to live in a Greek house, sadly this is not the place for you. Otherwise the groups meet at the KSU student center and still plan a host of events!

    Clubs and Activities

    There are too many clubs and activities to list. Some include: sports clubs, hobby clubs, religious clubs, and more!

    Great for these types of students

    If you don't like the idea of a massive campus, but do like the idea of still having plenty of students walking around, this is the place for you. KSU is up-and-coming and soon to finalize its football agenda.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    What can I say, you have to be here to experience much of the traditions. Greek life always has something planned.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition prices are great for the quality of professors here, as well as overall experience. The only issue is if you live on campus, housing can become expensive, compared to off-campus accommodations. The meal-plan is also decently priced in respect to the unlimited food you have access to once inside the dining hall, which is named The Commons. Again, the unlimited plan is overkill and buying a smaller sub 200 meal plan is a more down-to-earth money saver.

    What to do for fun

    The green is a nice place to relax and throw some frisbee, or even take a nice walk. Concerts and other events seem to be thrown for students every few weeks, so there is always something to look forward to! KSU also has its own wellness center equipped with a ton of exercise equipment and resources!

    Food and Dining

    The food here is very delicious, and the only reason it did not garner 5 out of 5 stars is because it can get repetitive. Burgers and pizza every other day as alternatives to eating the gourmet flare meals, which can sometimes taste rather different, can become tiring. The food is touted to be very healthy, most of which is organic and sourced in the vicinity of Kennesaw.

    Dorm Life

    A variety of dorms surround the campus exterior, and provide a nice place to live. The dorms are styled like apartments, and really make you feel at home. Residence life is also helpful.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes here are definitely tough. Smaller sized colleges are sometimes wrongly attributed to easy A's, but this is not one of them. Trust me, the science program is more than a challenge.

    Tips for prospective students

    Living on, or at least near campus is easier than the commute, especially being in close proximity to Atlanta traffic. Do not buy the unlimited meal plan, no matter what your stomach tells you, it is not worth the extra cost in the end. Enjoy yourself when you get here!

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw is an up-and-coming college, growing each day in student body and size. Campus life is calmed, yet abundant. The campus is its own small world, where the site of familiar faces each day is refreshing, as opposed to being lost in a crowd.

    There are on-campus cops and emergency buttons located around campus and the stadium (down the street). Pretty safe campus. You get weather and security alerts on your phone and e-mail account.

    Greek Life

    There isn't a Greek Row but, there are sororities and fraternities. They're listed on the school site.

    Clubs and Activities

    Plenty of organizations to join.

    I wouldn't say that KSU has a specific type of student that should attend. Everyone is really different.

    There isn't going to be a football team until Fall 2015 but there's still Homecoming. They have a Intramural Flag Football game instead.

    Bang for the buck

    Not a very costly school.

    What to do for fun

    Town Center Mall is a few minutes away, Mountasia (go-cart, mini golf, arcade, & bumper boats), Bowling and Paintball are close by too. There are two theaters close and plenty of stores on Barrett Pkwy.

    Food and Dining

    So many places within a few minutes of campus and most delivery places deliver to dorms. The Commons (cafeteria) is all you can eat and is set up like a mall food court/buffet. Lots of options to choose from. The Hoot is the late night place to eat. There is Chick-fil-a, Einstein Bagels and a few other restaurants on-campus.

    Dorm Life

    I've never lived on campus. I live close by, in off-campus housing. More and more off-campus housing is opening each year and the shuttle buses stop at them. From my friends places, the housing is better than other schools. You don't share bedrooms. May have to share a bathroom depending on the floor plan you choose.

    Academic Rigor

    Some teachers go by a point system and others a letter system. Course syllabi's explain this and what the schedule of the whole semester will be for the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Choose class times and courses carefully because you're only allowed to miss a certain amount of days before points are taken off your final grade. It's just like being in high school with a few more expectations and less time in class. You can usually get your schedule to be Mon-Thur.

    In three sentences

    One of the largest campuses in GA. All of the teachers I've had have been nice and the students are, too. There are a lot of retail and restaurants near by if you want to get off campus.

    There is a gym on campus, and it offers fitness classes such as Zumba, Gutts and Butts, and Cycling. Student organizations sponsor dances once in a while, those are usually fun too. You can also play inter mural sports where all you do is sign up for a team and show up to play every week, hint hint there is no charge!

    Food and Dining

    The Commons is very nice, however if you commute better watch your swipes. The food choices include Asian cuisine, burgers, salad and wrap station, pizza, pasta, fried chicken, and my favorite the dessert bar!!!

    Dorm Life

    Freshman dorms are very expensive! Find a cheaper alternative. Also if you don't wish to spend sleepless nights rent somewhere campus students forget normal humans are asleep at 3 A.M.

    Academic Rigor

    Procrastination is a no-no if you are intending to pursue a science related major. Some general education classes are very straightforward and do not require much work, however do not fall behind in these classes because of laziness. Study all through the semester if you do not want to pull all-nighters before finals and midterms.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid to ask questions, older students are more willing to help than you think. Form study groups when there is an exam!!! Join on campus activities and clubs because college is more fun when you meet all kinds of people and have new experiences.

    I personally do not know much about the Greek Life at Kennesaw State, but the people I know who have pledged love the sororities they are a part of and praise that it is affordable.

    Campus Safety

    We never have crime really. I mean, people leave their stuff all over the place (and I'm talking about laptops, phones, etc) and I've only heard of something getting stolen once and I've been going there for a year. Really safe campus. I even feel safe walking around at night, and I'm a particularly paranoid person.

    Bang for the buck

    It's definitely one of the cheaper colleges/universities, but that doesn't mean it's lacking in quality. Worth to go to especially if you're only going to knock out some gen ed courses before you head to a more rigourous college. Fees and eating costs are a little high, but still not extravagant.

    What to do for fun

    There's really not all that much to do... They have events on the campus green every once in awhile, but I always seem to be in class whenever they're going on, but most everyone else seems to enjoy them a lot. In terms of fun around the college, there isn't all that much to do in Kennesaw except go to the mall or go see a movie...

    Food and Dining

    Not that great... At all... Extremely overpriced for what you get and there never seems to be enough seating. It feels like the Dining Hall (the Commons) tries at the beginning and end of the semester but kind of gives up in the middle... Desserts are always excellent though! Started a new take-out program to that only cost a couple of bucks and the container's reusable. The Hoot used to be really good, but there was a kitchen fire and I'm not sure they're going to reopen it, but the food was really goo there.

    Dorm Life

    Don't actually live in the dorms, but definitely want to! There's extremely nice, and unlike other colleges, Kennesaw gives you your dorm for a full 12 months-- even over the summer. There's a lot of dorm functions and celebrations to. Not that expensive either-- I just can't justify it when I live ten minutes away...

    Academic Rigor

    Not all that challenging at all. Mostly, it's stuff I went over in high school-- the only difference is there's a lot more kids in my classroom this go around. And I took AP, so I've exempted a lot of coursework and it's still wickedly easy.

    Tips for prospective students

    Look at all the different degrees offered first and the courses offered and see it Kennesaw's a right fit for you. Always, always, always take a look at your professors before signing up for their class-- makes a big difference. And plan out your schedule in advance-- this makes a big difference when it comes to registrations for classes-- especially if you have late registration (like as a freshman).

    In three sentences

    A fairly nice campus with almost all new buildings, Kennesaw is a nice university to spend time at and all the classrooms are comfortable. While the coursework isn't at all challenging, a good number of the professors seem quite passionate about their jobs and you'll end up loving them. Overall, it's a pretty nice school-- and cheap!

    Food and Dining

    The main dining hall called The Commons consists of several different types of food you can eat and is very delicious. You can also go to other little eateries across campus like the Chick-fil-a, and the Boar's Head Deli. Overall the food here is very good and also since the campus is located by a shopping mall you will never run out of food choices.

    Dorm Life

    While I personally never stayed in a dorm, I have visited them and they are by far the nicest dorms I have ever been in. As a freshman you are eligible for apartment style living.

    Academic Rigor

    While each class may range in the amount of work you have to put in, all the classes at KSU are manageable. It is very feasible to get all A's here if you manage your time and take advantage of every opportunity the professors provide you with. Also there are many study and tutor options available for anyone who is struggling.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you get your application in early so that you can get a financial aid package settled out and can know what you are going to pay in advance.

    The food at Kennesaw, is absolutely without a doubt the best school food I have ever tried. They have tons of options for everyone's interests. Breakfast if by far my favorite, it's like a never ending buffet. The Commons is also a great way to meet new people so don't be afraid to just sit in there for a couple of hours.

    Dorm Life

    Living on campus is always fun. You make friends really easily and your out of your parents house which allows you some freedom in what you do in your daily life. The dorm rooms are nice, and have tons of space. They have an overall nice quality depending on how much you are willing to pay for housing.

    Academic Rigor

    The school has great classes. However, it gets extremely difficult sometimes to balance your entire work load. There are constant assignments to remember and finish. But, teachers and other students in your classes can help. Make sure that you allow yourself some easier classes when you are taking one of the harder courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    For students coming for close by, going to college close to home isn't a bad thing. I have been trying for months to get my parents to let me go far away for school, but being close by my family is a lot better than being far away. KSU allows me to be close to areas where there are activities while also being close to family. So don't rule the school out if you live near by. When choosing your parking area make sure that you look at your schedule for school. There is nothing worse than choosing a parking area that is on the opposite side of the campus. If you are not a morning person, do NOT take an 8 am class. You will not get up for class, and it is a waste of yours or your parents money if you fail the class for not attending it. When you sign up for your classes, make sure you keep a balanced load. You do not want your entire schedule to consist of extremely difficult courses. Start out simple for your first semester. You will get extremely stressed and frustrated if you overwork yourself. Make sure to study everyday. Having days where you do not study at all, is amazing when your in the moment. But later on your realize that you may have needed it at the time. So study for just an hour on days you have no classes. Get involved. Going to a game with friends, or joining a Greek society is a great way to make friends and stay involved in the school.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw is a great school with tons of social, academic, and recreational activities to become involved in. The campus is easy to navigate and everyone on campus is willing to assist you when there is a need for it. Teachers are amazing at what they do, and are always willing to help students in any way possible to make sure you as a student receive the best grade you can in that class.

    What to do for fun

    There are posters on campus of all the upcoming events like socials and parties. There are also all sorts of clubs to join and if you don't find something you like you can start your own club! Joining a club helps you meet people with the same interests as yourself, which equals loads of fun.

    Food and Dining

    Food galore! Kennesaw State's dining hall has so many options, even if you have allergies or are vegetarian. The food includes: Italian, classic American, salad bars, southern foods, and Asian. My favorite is the desert! Try the warm peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream. You're welcome.

    Dorm Life

    I didn't live at the dorms,but my friends would always invite me over. There are always events going on and its a great way to meet new people.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes at KSU are challenging, but it's not impossible to get A's. Follow the instructors syllabus exactly, stay organized, and you will do great! Kennesaw offers tutoring services and one of the most popular is the writing center, which is great for getting papers proof read before submitting.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. If you need a quiet place to study check out the third floor of the library! 2. Go to the gym early in the morning if you want to use the squat rack. Otherwise, get in line. 3. Don't go to the cafeteria at 1pm. We call it feeding time and there's no way you'll find a place to sit unless you go in earlier or later.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State is a very welcoming school. There are always students on campus studying outside and enjoying time between classes with friends. The campus is large and there are plenty of places to hangout, both quiet and loud.

    Campus Safety

    It's all old people. And lots of cops.

    Greek Life

    It's growing, and it's more inclusive and accepting than other schools with longer standing charters. If you can't get involved at another school, KSU is probably a great option.

    Clubs and Activities

    There's a lot out there, but between the vast number of students and the limited amount of space, information about activities is hard to get.

    Great for these types of students

    Homebodies, kids who want to feel like they're still in high school, kids who want to become involved in a small and up-and-coming Greek system.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Not many. It's a young school, with an older student body.

    Bang for the buck

    The price for me (in-state student, on a 100% tuition scholarship) has doubled in the past three years, and I have yet to see any benefit. Parking has not improved, food services has not improved, classroom services has not improved. But for what it's worth, it's more affordable than many other schools in the state.

    What to do for fun

    Atlanta is a really cool place, and it's only about a half-an-hour away. Marietta is pretty neat too. There's stuff to do on campus, but with so many people and such a big area, it's been really hard to get involved with on-campus activities. Too many people for such small offerings.

    Food and Dining

    There's one dining hall with limited take out options. There's also a Chick-fil-a. Once again, a HUGE school and a HUGE campus with the options of a much smaller school.

    Dorm Life

    It's very expensive, and since I live at home I can't say much. But my friends who have lived on campus are happy with the situation, but most move back home after a semester because of the cost.

    Academic Rigor

    It's as hard as you make it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved early on. It's a huge school with minimum options.

    In three sentences

    It's been okay. It's a lot like my high school. It's kind of regular.

    What to do for fun

    There is not much to do for fun around campus.

    Food and Dining

    KSU's Commons has the best dining facility ever! The food is fantastic and the dessert is divine. They are also transitioning to become a more greener facility and with the food it provides the students.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are great. There are apartment and suite-style dorms. Prices for each community are a bit reasonable. There are a ton of events set up by Residence Life and the RAs.

    Academic Rigor

    General education classes are super easy. However, classes that are more geared towards your major are a bit rigorous - nothing too difficult to overcome.

    Tips for prospective students

    Rent or buy old textbooks from online sites (Amazon, Chegg, Textbooks.com). It is also possible to find textbooks online in pdf formats. Use ratemyprofessors.com to see which professor is the best in a prospective class.

    Kennesaw State University is a very welcoming campus that is also filled with beautiful scenery. The campus is active and the student body is super friendly. It is the top third university in Georgia and the best producer of educators.

    Campus Safety

    There is a good amount of safety at Kennesaw State. There are emergency help buttons spread throughout campus and the KSU cops are just down the street if needed.

    Greek Life

    There are a lot of good quiet places to study and get some work done on campus. The Commons, the library, the social-sciences building's cafe, PJ's Coffee, student canter and more! In the english building there is the writing center to help with any essays and there are numerous amounts of tutors ready to help out. Plus you can connect to Wifi all through campus and there are free printing places in the dorms, as long as yo provide the paper!

    Clubs and Activities

    There are some great clubs on campus but my favorite is Nature Bound. It is a environmental based club that does a number of out door activities and trips. There are a lot of great clubs to choose from, especially for international students!

    Great for these types of students

    Kennesaw State University is great for students that want a university feel but not to be overwhelmed by a gigantic campus. It is good for students who do not have cars either. if not living on campus, there are many close by apartment complexes that are in walking distance or may even have the B.O.B. bus stop there. It is also a great school for people who want a homey or close nit feel. the school is a good enough size that it, like i said before, feels like a university but is comfortable and easy to make friends there, and many will know each other.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    One place you'll see everyone on a beautiful day is The Campus Green. Everyone will have brought out their hammocks and Frisbees. You may even see a few people whip out their tight ropes and have them tied to the tree trunks! There are always usuals you will see gathered around the sectioned smoking sections around campus that seem to be a hangout spot along with the small amphitheater near the social science building. Not really any strange traditions but you will get used to seeing people zoom by you on their long boards and bikes on their way to class.

    Bang for the buck

    Kennesaw is very well priced for the education that you are going to get, along with the professors and beautiful campus. Dorms are a bit more pricey but they are definitely worth the money, they come fully equipped!

    What to do for fun

    There are a few places around Kennesaw that are fun; some good bars, Town Center Mall ( which has the owl bus access), movie theaters, Kennesaw Mountain, and Lake Acworth is close by for nice days. And atlanta isnt too far away either. But even just chilling on campus and sitting on the green is great, when the weather is nice, everyone is out here enjoying it!

    Food and Dining

    The Commons is great, especially now that they are accommodating to more types of diets and dietary restrictions. After two semesters of living on campus and basically living off of The Commons it can get just a tad repetitive, but its still very satisfying!

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life at KSU is truly great! They have some of THE BEST dorms in GA. Rooms are great size, clean and the whole experience is fun and new!

    Academic Rigor

    Kennesaw is a very good school, that comes with a great higher education, but that means you are going to have to work. You'll have your free time but expect to slack off like high school. Every grade is very important and can change your whole experience in a class. Study!

    Tips for prospective students

    1) Do not plan your schedule for socializing. You are at school for education, and though college is a fun time in your life, take it from some one who knows how much focusing more on your social life than classes can screw you over, that you really need to create a schedule is best for you education, first. 2) If a teacher allows extra credit, do it! Always, even if you don't think you need it. Believe me you will always benefit. 3) Take advantage of study groups and tutoring supplied on your campus. Tutoring can get very expensive, but if your school has free tutoring (which KSU does), then definitely take advantage of that! 4) Buy your books used not from your school, and at sell back time your school will usually still buy them back from you even if you bought them else where. Books purchased from campus are most of the time more expensive and you might be able to get a few extra bucks back at sell back time! 5) Research your professors before class registration and have a list AND alternate possibilities ready. And then take full advantage of drop/add. It will be you best friend those first two weeks of classes.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State University is a truly welcoming school. I was nervous as an incoming freshman, but the beautiful campus, the great staff and the wonderful higher education received there made it so easy to call it my home.

    easy but if you dont do your work well... you start college to study right? so why bother about how difficult it is cuz college is difficult.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are a business student, like a quiet environment and enjoy food... well this is the place. for the students who plan on partying this college organizes parties almost everyday but there aren't many clubs around. if u drive that problem is solved too.

    It has a great business school and the staff/ faculty are always there to help. The meal plan is great and the cafeteria serves every taste you'll probably like. The housing is probably the best compared to.... well anywhere.

    They are pretty good at sending out scholarships. Just check out the scholarship page and fill them all out.

    What to do for fun

    There is so much you can do for fun. Join a club or a sport! Everyone at Kennesaw is willing to help you get adjusted to school and honestly it's easy to make friends. I commute, so I thought I wouldn't get the full college experience, but boy was I wrong! I was able to make so many friends within the first week just by joining a club. There are also a bunch of areas around the school that you can check out, like the mall or some restaurants nearby.

    Food and Dining

    Food is one of the best. Apparently they beat Disney as far as dining is concerned, so if you want good food this is definitely the school to go to.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in a dorm, so I have no idea, but from what my friends tell me the dorm life there is awesome!

    Academic Rigor

    Kennesaw State University values education over everything else. There is no room to fail or get behind in classes, so do your best to stay on track. The teachers are willing to help you so long as you make the time to ask questions and get help.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you apply for scholarships early and do not slack in your classes. Stay sharp and join some clubs, but in all honesty you should be fine.

    Campus Safety

    Campus Safety is very good. The police force is always there when you need them, plus they will give you their phone numbers to contact them at any time of the day, no matter where you are. This comes especially handy if you have classes at night. You always feel safe knowing they're around.

    Great for these types of students

    Any student who wants to feel at home while in college should definitely give Kennesaw State a look. The overall atmosphere is really calming.

    Bang for the buck

    Student Life hosts so many activites during the year. But one of the most exciting parts are the musical artists that come down and perform at Kennesaw State. Just recently, Big Boi from Outkast came to perform, and a few months before that, Future performed. They're so much fun. And the shows are free for all students! It's a great way to take time off from school work.

    What to do for fun

    There's so many clubs and recreational activities to do once you get up here. There an event called the Week of Welcome the first week that classes start. Every club and organization is down on the Campus Green, and they give you the opportunity to meet them and see what you want to do. In the surrounding area of Marietta and Kennesaw, you can also go ice skating, mini golfing, go to the movies, the mall is right down the road. There's a lot of things to do!

    Food and Dining

    First, I should talk about The Commons. There's such an abundance of food available to you through there. Anything you want! Vegetarian, Soul Food, Italian, Japanese. You name it, it'll be there. And the food is always fresh. But, there's other options on campus. There's two coffee shops, one in the Social Sciences Building, and the other in the Student Center, and they have all types of pastries and drinks to choose from. There's also a Chick-Fil-A Express and a deli in the Student Center. Both of which are really good.

    Dorm Life

    You meet people that you would have never met in regular circumstances. These people end up making a lasting impression on you, and will become one of the funner parts of living in dorms. There's also so many activities that the community assistants set up for you. Cookouts, study sessions, get-togethers. There's plenty of ways to get active and get involved with other people.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are very well set up. They're challenging enough for you to not be bored in class, but the teacher combine their hard work with an equal amount of fun. They really know how to get you involved in class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to do your assigned reading. It really comes in handy. Check D2L! If you're commuting by bus, make sure to time when you come down for it.

    In three sentences

    It's close enough to Atlanta to go see and do things like concerts, festivals, and such. Try to get all your classes on two days so that you have the rest of your time free. Use ratemyprofessor and myedu to check for good professors. Always register the first day as early as possible to get the best classes!

    Campus Safety

    The campus is patrolled by campus police and we have emergency call boxes located all around campus. We are also in a good part of town so there isn't any danger from that.

    Greek Life

    The Greek life at KSU is very involved in the community, and all the fraternities and sororities get along on campus and they're aren't any rivalries. We do not have Greek Houses, but there are Greek Houses located in off campus housing. They all have a lot of fun and have mixers and parties, and they are all nice people.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a huge range of activities to get involved with on campus. If you don't find one that fits your interest and wish to start one, it's really easy to do so. On a campus this big, you're bound to find a group of people who are interested in the same thing!

    Great for these types of students

    Adult Learners, Commuters, Traditional, Non traditional, Veterans, Foreign Exchange, Etc. There are programs in place to help anyone.

    There is a certain place you can stand near the University Village Suites, that if you clap it makes a squeeking sound that only the clapper can hear.

    Bang for the buck

    All colleges are a little over priced, but overall Kennesaw has good value. Classes aren't extremely large, buildings are clean and up to date, housing and dining is award winning, and the campus itself is beautiful. There is always something new being added to campus as it's ever expanding.

    What to do for fun

    There are often activities on the Green that you can attend and people are always hanging out outside. Off campus, there is a lot of stuff to do. There are plenty of restaurants and stores, and we are just moments away from a mall, but we are also surrounded by museums and historical landmarks, as well as a lake and state parks. We also have activities such as mini golf, bowling, laser tag and movies.

    Food and Dining

    Our student dining hall is ranked one of the highest in the nation and has even beat out those at culinary schools. We have several other dining choices on campus that accept the meal plan as well. The food is delicious and there is a good variety, by fall of 2014 we should have a new taco bar as well.

    Dorm Life

    Easily some of the best on campus housing opportunities out there. I live in the on campus apartments in which you have your own bedroom and bathroom with a full size bed, and the apartment shares a kitchen, laundry room and living room. Study rooms are also available on every floor.

    Academic Rigor

    Some professors are a lot more strict than others, some have broader grading scales, and some classes only offer a few grades in a semester. Of course, different classes will have different effort level required but over all the classes are average, as long as you go to class and take notes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Check out what people have said about your professors on ratemyprofessor.com before you commit to a class to be sure you can deal with that class, and sign up for classes as soon as possible. Don't be afraid to go out and meet new people on campus, most people are pretty open and accepting.

    What to do for fun

    I usually spend most of my time in the library, but when I do stuff on campus, it's usually on the Campus green. There is always a frisbee game or a fraternity get together or hammocking going on at the green. It's a fun place to go and socialize after class or a hard test.

    Food and Dining

    KSU's dining is spectacular. Our commons always has really good food. They have pizza, pasta, Chinese food, wraps and sandwiches, burgers, and salads everyday. They also have things like Taco Thursdays when they have Mexican food. The breakfast is delicious. Everything is always so good there.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms at KSU are not your typical dorms. They are more like apartments. I have my own room, and I share a bathroom with another girl. There are two other roommates in our apartment as well. We have a full sized kitchen, dining room, and living room. Plus, we only pay $465 a month, which is really not bad for the resources we have access to.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are challenging, but the professors make it worth the challenge. If you are struggling, all you have to do is ask for help and they will do everything in their power to help you understand it.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would definitely take advanced courses if possible. They really help prepare you for any college, especially KSU. The classes really challenge your thinking ability. They want to see you work for the grade instead of just giving it to you, so study and put 100% into your works. If you don't understand the material, meet with your professor, they will help you. They know college will not be easy, so they give up some of their time to help you achieve success.

    The academic rigor in this school is about average for general education courses, but they are fairly challenging in the fields of chemistry and other natural sciences.

    Tips for prospective students

    It would be a very good idea to think about living away from home and not commuting. The on-campus facilities are amazing for first-year students and others, and I highly recommend living in the student housing.

    Food and Dining

    How can i explain this? Imagine the best food you've ever tried throughout your childhood and into adulthood, from the restaurant down the street to going on vacation and going to a restaurant. The commons is just like that. It is insanely good and they always have a huge variety of food.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms give you that hotel feel.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes can be hard, but if you devote your time to studying and show up to class. You will pass and do well in class.

    Tips for prospective students

    look up your professor before signing up. Get text books from amazon.

    Campus Safety

    The campus feels very safe. There are alarm posts located all around the buildings, parking lots, and parking decks.

    What to do for fun

    On campus, there are many clubs to join and friends to make. There is an occasional fraternity/sorority party. Off campus, there is Sky Zone, the Town Center mall, the Electric Cowboy; other than those, there isn't much to around the city.

    Food and Dining

    The Commons serves a variety of delicious food throughout the day that can satisfy any diet. They have received various awards for the quality of their food.

    Dorm Life

    The maintenance staff works diligently to keep the rooms up to par and the buildings clean. There is always a weeks notice if the staff or RA's have to go into the dorms. Honestly, the dorm life experience depends on the roommates.

    Academic Rigor

    The difficulty of the classes somewhat depends on the professor. There are many opportunities to receive assistance outside of class though.

    Tips for prospective students

    New students should definitely make the most of their time and join a club. The microwaves are higher power than most, so be careful and try not to set off the fire alarm. They should also think twice before rooming with a friend; it seems like fun at first, but think thoroughly before making the decision.

    In three sentences

    The campus is easy to navigate through and clean. It's a small walk from the dorms to the Commons and classes. There is a wide variety of people and activities to stay busy.

    Greek Life

    Definitely join greek life if you are interested. I am in a sorority and I would be so bored on the weekends if it wasn't for our socials and getting to know the fraternities.

    Great for these types of students

    People that want to go to a fun school but don't want to deal with the chaos of having a crazy bar life right down the street.

    What to do for fun

    There are a ton of things to do. I am in a sorority so that keeps me busy. Kennesaw mountain is a great place to hike. Even though we don't have a downtown there are still fun parties on the weekends and a few bars around the area.

    Food and Dining

    The commons is good but gets old after a while.

    Dorm Life

    I live in the University village in a four bedroom, and it literally feels like an apartment.

    Academic Rigor

    It depends on the classes you take.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you have to live on campus live in the university village apartments. They are so nice. Get involved! It can get boring if you aren't involved in anything that can keep you busy.

    Campus Safety

    Those emergency buttons and call stations are everywhere, the KSU police is everywhere. They take every report seriously. I have never even once begun to feel unsafe on campus. Also, ask anyone from the class of 2017 about the fire alarms in the University Village Suites. Let's just say there's no way there will ever be a fire that all of the Suites doesn't know about..

    Greek Life

    People seem to think Greek Life here leaves a little to be desired. A lot of people on campus are in a sorority or a fraternity, but there aren't Greek houses, and it's not really as big a deal at Kennesaw as it is at a lot of the other schools in the state.

    Clubs and Activities

    There seems to be a club for basically anything. KSU Step It Up, for example, is the club that painted the stairs in Central Deck. Whatever you like to do, you'll be sure to find a club that shares your interests at Kennesaw.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who can drive. If you can't drive, sometimes you'll be a little limited, especially since Kennesaw is such a commuter school. A lot of group meetings and hangouts will be somewhere off campus, not necessarily in walking distance.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The Central Deck stairwells are painted. The doors are painted different bright colors for each level, and the walls have things like sunsets painted on. It's really cute, pretty, all of that, and it gives you a reason to walk the stairs instead of taking the elevator.

    Bang for the buck

    This school has everything, or at least it will by Fall 2015. The dorms are the ridiculously high quality- even the worst dorms are better than some of the best dorms on other campuses. With the renovations and additions to so many buildings, there's no way but up from here.

    What to do for fun

    This is where Kennesaw lacks a bit, but all you really need to do to have fun is get a few friends together and just hang out. Atlanta isn't very far away, and there are various places just around the town. The campus itself has multipurpose rooms and places to hang out, but you kind of need to have at least one or two friends in order to have a good time.

    Food and Dining

    Great, great, wonderful dining. As with any place, it gets old after the 1000th time you eat there, but there is a plethora of choices. Basically any type of food you want is at your feet at Kennesaw.

    Dorm Life

    Ever single one of the dorms is high quality, and goes far beyond typical college dorm expectations. Living on campus is less stressful than commuting. THere are typically a good number of events going on, as well.

    Academic Rigor

    I haven't really ventured into any world other than General Education, but Kennesaw definitely takes schooling seriously. It's incredibly hard like Georgia Tech, but, depending on the class taken, it can be challenging.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go to every single event you possibly can, be as social as possible, and live on campus. This school may look small, but it's got a lot to offer.

    In three sentences

    Small campus with a big college feel. Probably the most exciting, rising star college in the state of Georgia. Affordable, but very high quality.

    Food and Dining

    The Commons is everything you love about buffets. They have almost 80 different options of food to choose from daily. The Commons was ranked with top colleges on BestColleges.com as one of the best dining halls in the US.

    Dorm Life

    We have some of the best reviewed student housing in the US.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes aren't very difficult. KSU is not Georgia Tech.

    Tips for prospective students

    Kennesaw isn't a normal university. When looking through applications, KSU almost rarely takes GPA into account. KSU is very adamant about being as diverse as possible, so they look at every little factor concerning extra-curricular activities. Test scores are taken into account though, so do beware of that.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State University excels in the area of diversity. It is the third largest university in the state of Georgia, and has one of the largest nursing and business programs in the south east United States. Kennesaw State University is a wonderful school to study at.

    There is always stuff going on around campus. So much free food, ha. But on the weekends, there are parties. And Atlanta isn't that far away. There is a mall here in Kennesaw and many places to go eat.

    Food and Dining

    There are a lot of options. Our dining facility is voted one of the best in the country, although you'll tired of the food there quickly. There are many different options on campus though, like Chik fil A, Starbucks, Wow Cafe and more.

    Dorm Life

    There are apartment style and suite style dorms. I think they are a little expensive. I pay 555 a month for a 4 bedroom, 2 bath apartment. They are nice though. Very pretty. Especially University Place.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers vary. I've had teachers that are excellent at what they do, and I've had teachers that didn't really care. Just review your teachers before selecting.

    full-time employees, teachers, family-oriented students_ KSU provides various online degree programs. The programs allow you to work at your own pace while continuing to be with your family or maintaining a full-time job.

    Food and Dining

    I am an online student.

    Dorm Life

    I am an online student. I am sure that KSU provides ample enough space for the on-campus students.

    Academic Rigor

    For my online courses, I have had plenty of support while completing my program. I feel that the coursework is the same as attending school on campus. The courses are very hands-on and provide opportunities to apply real-world experiences.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to get documentation in on time. I have had great experiences when trying to handle things over the telephone. Email is a great way to communicate with them as well.

    What to do for fun

    KSU offers a great place in the center of the University called the Green, where one can hang a hammock, throw some pig skin or show off their skills with ultimate frizbee. It's a large, grassy area with enough room for many a student to enjoy the sunshine. Dance and fitness classes are also offered at the University too.

    Food and Dining

    KSU proudly offers a recently renovated dining hall, where there are tons of different types of food served all day for any craving known to man. It's huge and has great views of the beautiful campus!

    Dorm Life

    I have no personal experience in living in a dorm at KSU, but I have heard they are a bit small and the walls are kind of thin. But if one wants the real college experience I think they will find it here. Any college dorms you go to will be similar. College is supposed to be loud, fun and filled with cram study sessions!

    Academic Rigor

    If one wants an A in a course, they have to apply themselves at KSU. The general education courses are not rocket science hard, but one still needs to focus and have enough time to study for each course in order to do well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't panic if you're unsure of what you should study or what field you want to work in in the future! You have time to figure all that out after trying out some helpful workshops and courses offered by the university or talking with an advisor.

    In three sentences

    Kennesaw State University is a constantly evolving and growing University. The professors who teach at KSU are amazing forces of nature forever encouraging and motivating their students. If one is unsure of their future or what degree they wish to pursue, the qualified and well-organized staff at KSU are always prepared to lend an ear and give students suggestions and opportunities to help them find their own path.

    KSU/Cobb county police will literally arrest you for any reason they can find. They will even go as far as to make something up just to arrest you.

    Kennesaw is a school you go to to knock our some core classes because it is cheap and easy. You do not go to get a degree. There is no other reason anyone should attend Kennesaw. The system is so confusing and slow the people working for the school barely know whats going on half the time. The teachers think they are better then they really are, and frankly the campus layout sucks. It is hard to navigate around campus and the way the parking decks are set up causes traffic to be hell in the mornings making you late almost 90% of the time to your morning classes.

    What to do for fun

    Get Involved! Whether with sports of the huge amount of clubs offered on campus, get involved with something. On a sunny day the campus greens are crawling with kids playing music, football, ultimate Frisbee, and even role playing RPG clubs.

    Food and Dining

    The food service is spot on and two coffee shops on campus make sure you are getting the caffeine intake you need to live through college.

    Dorm Life

    I did not live in the dorms but from what my friends said about them, the dorms are wonderful and they are set up as a unit. The dorms are next to the campus and are their own little city space with shops and places to eat on the outside, on the inside that look like hotels.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are designed to push you and make you work hard for the grades you want, but teachers also are right there to led a helping hand.

    Tips for prospective students

    Never be late to classes and let the teachers know why you weren't in class if you cannot make it. Make sure you take advantage of the meal plans on campus; the cafeteria is phenomenal. Be sure to get involved with some group or project on campus.

    In three sentences

    KSU is a community inside its walls and the teachers and staff are all a part of every students life. The School strives for unity and offers many chances to get involved with other students on campus. Overall I would rate KSU a 9 of of 10 in school rating.
