Kennesaw is definitely high on my list to attend the institution. I've taken multiple tour of the Kennesaw campus and have enjoyed every minute of it. The university really prepared the guide for whatever question because anything I asked, the tour guide was more than willing to answer and even if on the off chance they did not know, there would be a student commuting to a class who could cheerfully respond. Of course, every campus could use some improvement but it seems like Kennesaw actually cares about its campus and is constantly improving even if those are trivial fixes! I love Kennesaw, GO OWLS!
Review Kennesaw State University
At first, I would get nervous and almost cry when someone mentioned the word "college" to me. I went to an open house at my school and absolutely fell in love. The food was amazing, the classrooms are all decent sizes, and the professors I have had have all been wonderful. When I started I didn't really know anybody and my roommates were all a lot olde than me. I quickly made friends who will most likely be lifelong friends. The acedemics have been challenging but bearable. I have really enjoyed my college experience so far and I can't wait to see what the next few years hold!
As an on campus resident I have really enjoyed my time being a Kennesaw State University Owl! I have done a lot of things during my first semester at Kennesaw State. I joined the thrive program which is a program to help freshman keep their hope scholarship. I made life time friends in this program and am even doing a community service project with other members in thrive this semester. The teachers I had were very good at what they do and always set aside time to help you if you come
to them. Living on campus was a great choice because I meet a lot of people through the Resident Assistant programs. I also played co-ed flag football and here I meet a lot of people. Overall my experience at Kennesaw State was a good one and I recommend it to anyone who wants to further their higher eduction.
