What Students Are Saying

4.00 Average Rating
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!!
Alicia from Kennesaw, GA
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:)
Jennifer from Marietta, GA
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.
Caitlyn from Kennesaw, GA
Come ready to work hard and get involved. This will make the time spent here successful and worthwhile.
Essance from Marietta, GA
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.
James from Roswell, GA
for dorms and such, get them as soon as the housing portal opens. no waiting. even look at some of the other dorms located on either campus, since kennesaw has a marietta location and a kennesaw location just in case cause they get filled quickly. also, go to any meeting there is, even if they are just "pre" meetings for something. you could work on memorizing the campus and such that way at least.

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.
Olivia from Kennesaw, GA
get a parking permit for the north deck, have your classes ready before your time ticket opens up, and always have a backup plan nearby just in case the wifi goes out.
adalynn from stockbridge, ga
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.
J-Elle from Kennesaw, GA
Keep your grades up and review clubs that you may be interested in before you get here. Try and live on campus.
