Kennesaw State University Reviews
As a student who has joined KSU in 2016, specifically in the Marietta campus, I can say that my overall experience has been filled with ease and purpose. I never had trouble when having to reach out to people or asking for help whenever I needed it. It's a fairly large campus with friendly staff members as well. Moreover, the courses that are provided for students come in variety of fruits and serves its purpose well. The professors I've had so far are majorly willing to help and are caring towards a student's education and path of success. In terms of the campus' security, it's fairly safe as there are police spread out in certain areas of the campus. The diversity of the college is also great, which is probably my favorite aspect about it, which made my experience easy and enjoyable. The food is pretty good too! Only wished that there were more highly rated food restaurants located in the center of the campus that way it'd become more accessible and desirable for students/teachers.
Overall, the campus is clean and nice. Registration usually goes smoothly and everything is pretty clear. There are a lot of services on campus, like printing, free tutoring, 3D printing and more! The food is mostly good, however, many food places are often very crowded. On the downside, the administration a lot of times is very disorganized and has issues communicating with students. Not a lot of safety provided to the students on campus as anyone could enter and walk around the campus. Housing administration is one of the worst organized administrations, as they make a lot of mistakes and do not replying a timely manner. It is not the worst school, it is actually very decent, however, there are a lot of things to improve upon.
Kennesaw is a great school. It's not the hardest school to get into ,but when you do get in it's fairly hard to get classes because they get full VERY quickly because it's such a large campus. The food on campus is great. The meal plans can be a little expensive, but the food is great. You can choose from the commons (the cafeteria), Panda Express, Stacks, and Chic-fil-a. There also so great off-campus restaurants within close proximity of the school. Housing is another great factor of the school(one of the main reasons I chose it). You have great options at pretty low prices per semester. The only down side is like classes, housing is EXTREMELY COMPETITIVE! Overall Kennesaw is not a bad school.
