While attending Kennesaw State University, I have experienced a numerous amount of things. For starters, the diversity at KSU is very broad. There are tons of students from many walks of life that attend the university. Also, the Coles College of Business is one of the best business programs in the state! I feel as though that this university has more than prepared me for life after college.

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!
I love Kennesaw State University because the campus is clean, beautiful, and close together. The professors are well-qualified and the student body is diverse. Above all, it is affordable and highly respected!
