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!
