Kennesaw State University Reviews
Let's start with the campus. KSU's campus is genuinely pretty. The buildings seem new, are well maintained and the landscaping is beautiful. Parking is ridiculously cheap too! There are plenty of dining and coffee options, including Starbucks, and the gym has everything you need, whether you're into cardio or weights. I only have experience with nursing teachers. The classes have been easy so far but I wish the material was a bit more rigorous, to be honest. Some of the professors seem incredibly knowledgable and some...not so much. The one thing that attracted me to KSU was the availability of help. If you have questions for admissions, counseling, financial aid, or program specific information, they always answer within 24 hours and they treat you like a person, not a number. Both faculty and staff are helpful and just seem nice. I have had nothing but pleasant interactions with faculty, staff and students. It's just a welcoming environment.
The school is fantastic! The campus is gorgeous, my professors are all great teachers and seem invested in my outcome. There are many research opportunities, and they are plenty willing to pay for me to travel and present my research, as well as having several on-campus research conferences/presentations. My only complaint is the meal plan, which, though delicious, is FAR more than I could possibly eat in a semester, leading to a lot of money going to waste.
I love the environment on campus! Everyone is so friendly and it is really easy to be a part of the community! The campus has so many opportunities to join clubs, groups, and academic as well as social circles. There are even days where the local farmer's market comes and sets up! The campus itself is also lovely - the Campus Green especially! The Commons also has the best food, which is important for college. All in all, this school is definitely worth going to.
