    good luck paying off student loans when every reputable employer laughs at your resume after they see 'kennesaw state univeristy (enter general degree with no concentration or helpful minor) and throws in the trash to get it out of the way of your high school friend's resume who went to tech. the standards and kids produced here are sub-par and underprepared for a next-level work environment. you will graduate a soft, typical millennial with a degree worth as much as the homeowners fee for the plastic siding, cookie-cutter, minivan neighborhood youll soon live in.

    Honestly, I think the tuition is reasonable, they just have a lot of unnecessary charges for every little thing, but a lot of them are state wide, so KSU has no control over it. The prices of the dorms is what it kind of expensive, but worth it in the outcome.

    Sometimes feel like tuition is going into the wrong place and since the merge the tuition costs did raise but life on campus is a tad bit better. There has been improvements and the merge will take some time for everything to get adjusted.

    In state tuition is definitely a bang for my buck in my opinion. As far as I have seen everything is included in your tuition. This is including being able to use the Wellness Center clinic, meal plans, transportation fees, etc. (For full time students meal plan/transportation fees are required)
