    the dining halls have a wide selection of choices and it can be good to mix and match to create your own meals. the food selections are different through out the week. however, the weekly menu does not change and after a year or so can become monotonous.

    the food is really incredible for a college. i have eaten the dining halls at georgia, auburn, tech, southern, and alabama, and none of them come close to commons. the food is fresh and rich in variety. really great stuff.

    We are currently ranked #4 in the COUNTRY for campus dining. While you may think eating on campus would get tiring, the food choices and varieties allow each and every person to enjoy food each and everyday without having to repeat. And another huge bonus of the dining hall... Waffles are served all day long!!!!

    Beware the freshman 15 coming in! Food is #4 in the country (first, second, and third go to John's Hopkins, Columbia, and Bowdoin, which are all private). KSU is the #1 public school in the country for food. I could eat all day here.

    On the Kennesaw campus food is almost always good but the Marietta campus can be hit and miss. Sometimes the Marietta side has some really great food and sometimes it doesn't it just depends who's in the kitchen.

    You will love the Commons, the dining area, that has a variety of foods offered ranging from international to vegetarian. It can get very crowded at times but other than that it is very enjoyable.

    The Commons is delicious. Use your dining dollars and Common's swipes sparingly because the food is just that good. There is a Chick Fil A, Burrito Bowl, Freshens, Starbucks, Jazzman's Cafe, Boar's Head, The Hoot, and a Sushi Place. Then in the Commons we grow our own produce, so everything is really fresh and good. From pizza, soul food, american, a deli, and globetrotters. There's always good food to be had.

    The food at The Commons (our dinning facility) is pretty good. It has the feel of a food court where you can eat a combination of Southern food, Italian, Organic, and other options. There are also other places around campus to get a quick meal. Our student center has a Chick-fil-a and a sushi bar and our business building has a Starbucks cafe. I'm sure that you'll find some place on campus that has something you like.

    The Commons is rated as one of the top college dining halls in the country. It's set up buffet-style so you can eat as much as you want when you're there. There are also a variety of food options and different dishes are served throughout the day.

  • Apr-17-2016 I am a current student here

    no housing. really cheap compared to other places and in return the events and trips are pretty lame. there is a lack of community that makes greek life great and effective that causes philanthropy and other success building aspects of greek life very sub par. fraternities and sororities here are nothing more than a way to get cool t-shirts and have a shelter to drink at instead of going out. its what you would call lame, and a waste of money.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
