My opinion of Kennesaw state university is that they have a very great nursing program and so many scholarships to loook for. I love how they have police officers on campus to make ensure everyone is safe and is doing everything they are supposed to do. I love how the dorms are set up, you and your roommate have your own bedroom. I love to have my own personal space when it comes down to living with someone I barely know. They have very good academic classrooms; you can always ask any questions about anything you would want to know. Everyone on campus including professors is very nice and very easy to communicate with.
I believe that the University is a special one and I encourage students to come out and become a KSU Owl. There are a lot of people on campus and involvement would really improve anyone's experience at the school, this is only my first semester on Campus and so far I've loved it so perhaps I'm biased but it really is a good school with a great culture.
Kennesaw State University is a well rounded college with good vibes and energy, The compound is also very clean and the students are welcoming.
It's... something. I'm terribly grateful that it accepts dual enrollment students like myself, though. Not the most academic school, but perfect for high schoolers hoping to get some college experience! The housing is absolutely phenomenal, I took a tour, and the food on-campus is very available.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Kennesaw State University is 58%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would change a lot of things about my school work and focus in high school to better equip myself for college. First, I would save money so I could prepare myself for the financial toll that the unversity process takes. Housing, required meal plan, gas, books, and tuition add up over time. It is very diffucult to try to work enough hours to pay for necessities and get all of your school work done. Second, I would practice better study habits during my high school year so I would know how to retain all the information given by each class to be confident once tests arrive. Lastly, I would be more envolved with my school more. I partcipated in sports a lot but I wish I would have been more active in other aspects so when I got into college I would have a drive to continue in these activities. In conclusion I would have better money management skills, study skills, and school participation so that my transition into college would be a more wholesome experience.
Most of my classmates are young and irresponsible.
It is more of a commuter school.
I wish I had known about how many students attend the school. It is a pretty big campus with a lot of people. This is also a great thing for you get to meet a lot of people who share the same values and career goals as you. You are in constant contact with people of different ethnicities and backgrounds, which really makes you a better person. This is because you get to interact with others and learn more about them and where they came from.
The best thing about my school is the professors. Most of them have open office hours and are willing to help in any kind of way to help their students succeed. Students have lots of resources on Campus to help them accomplish their goal.
Really fun and all about being culturally diverse.
A person who prefers small classes and a small, tight student body should not attend this school. The school is far to large and has an extremely high population. It is also primarily a commuter college, so there are fewer residents than most colleges.
The location of the school. It's in a suburban area and only abput 25 minutes from Atlanta and it located across the street from a major highway.
Someone who wants a small school experience and plans to continue their education elsewere.
All residential housing has private bedrooms. All the other schools I applied to didn't have that, so that made Kennesaw really unique. You get to have your own space and never feel crammed.
The rediculous classes required for a major. My world history degree requires five foriegn language courses, which only take up my time and energy and cost money for classes I really need.
My school is best known for its ability to balance both rigorous coursework and an incredible amount of extra curricular activities on campus. We always pack the stadiums for all of our sports and cheer one another on. School is always students' number one priority to ensure success in such an intellectually challenging environment.
I would say that they are a mixture of overachievers and underachievers with very little in-between. Some students work really hard to get good grades while others put down those who work really hard to get good grades. Those others are happy turning in their 15-page paper that they wrote the night before it was due. However, those who work really hard care about what they are doing and what they are going to do in the future.
The amount of students enrolling and matriculating at our school seems to be growing exponentially each year. The open enrollment poicy should be curtailed and the school should start accepting students more selectively,especially based on merit, not location of students' home residence. There is a growing need for parking because of this open enrollment. A fair but innovative parking lottery system should be implemented and enacted very soon to address this growing problem.
The academics at Kennesaw State University are challenging, but not overwhelming. If students are looking for an easy ride through college, they could probably find classes to suit at KSU. If the students want a challenge, they can also most definitely find that at KSU as well. I am pursuing a career in paleoanthropology, so my classes are fairly difficult. My professors are quite flexible, though, and they work with me if I am struggling. They also have offered to contact their associates at other universities to try to find opportunities for me that would help me with graduate school acceptance and my future career. The upper level major courses are my favorite classes because I am studying about my favorite things. I love learning, though, and I have found many of the general education courses surprisingly interesting. There are so many professors at KSU and so many classes offered that you are bound to find a class you will enjoy even if it a subject that you do not enjoy.
I can't speak for much being a School of Music student, but fraternities and sororities are very popular on campus.
I decided to go to KSU because it has a really nice nursing program, and this school is really renovating itself. The campus is really beautiful and it is relatively close to my home. I also really liked the dormatories and the people when I came here for a college visit with my school. Kennesaw State University also gave me enough scholarships for the first year and I did not have to pay for anything.
The dorms at KSU are really nice; they are more like apartments than typical college dorms. The dorms in which I live are set up with four individual bedrooms and bathrooms, with a living room area and kitchen as the main part of the apartment. Other dorms only have 2 bedrooms, so you could choose to share an apartment with only one other person. Some of the dorms have two bedrooms with a kitchenette and a shared bathroom and no living room; these are a bit more like typical college dorms. No pets are allowed in any of the complexes. Some of the dorms are substance free, and others are not, in which case you could have alcohol if you are over 21. The dorms come with cable hookups and ether net plug ins, as well as telephone jacks (all of which is included in your monthly rent except for the telephone, if you choose to get a land line). The dorms in which I live have a clothes washer and dryer, a refrigerator/freezer, stove/oven, and dishwasher in unit. Other dorms only have a select few of those appliances. My dorms also have dressers in the bedrooms, a large desk attached to the wall, and 2 long bookshelves attacked to the wall above the desk. They are quite nice dorms, and everyone is always surprised that college students here have such nice accommodations.
When I first came to KSU, I loved the dining hall (called the Commons). And I'm not the only one; it's really nice, especially compared to other university dining halls. The Commons has different areas of food, including a deli/sandwich section with salads and a grill, an Asian section, a pizza/pasta section, a home style comfort food section, an international section that features foods from different cultures, a burger/hotdog/grilled cheese section with french fries and other typical American foods, and a coffee bar with teas, specialty coffees, desserts, and fresh juices. So it's pretty great, unless you're a vegan like me. They do usually have at least one vegan item at the dining hall, but I never know when that's going to be, and I've wasted a meal swipe on more than one occasion because the only thing I could get was a spinach salad. Because it's so nice, though, it's pretty expensive to get a meal plan or to eat there without a meal plan by paying with cash. The company that supplies the food and some of the employees is Sodexo, which is not one of my favorite companies. They don't have a good reputation for fair treatment of their employees, and they are non-compliant with "farmed animal" welfare reforms. But if you don't care about any of that, that freshman 15 could easily turn into freshman 50. Aside from the dining hall, there is an Einstein Bagels in one of the classroom buildings, which is nice. There is also another Sodexo owned coffee shop in another of the classroom buildings. The student center, which is in the middle of the campus, has a Krispy Kreme section and a little Chick-fil-A section, a PJ's coffee, and a deli sandwich shop. So for the average college student, KSU has plenty of dining options.
I am majoring in Physical Anthropology, which is a less popular major than typical majors like business or political science. Therefore, the classes for my major are much smaller than some of the other major classes. There are usually less than 30 people in each class; I would say the average is around 20. The general education classes, however, are much bigger, some with 250 students per class. I like that, though, because sometimes I prefer anonymity in the classroom as opposed to everyone knowing who you are. The teachers are still available for consultation, though, and it is rather easy to get to know them despite the larger class sizes. The smaller major classes are nice too because you can get to know your professors really well, and they really work with you to achieve in the classroom and well as in your future career. You also get a change to meet people who are the same major as you, which is a nice change from everyone else in the general education classes. Although, the diversity in the general education classes is nice as well since I enjoy talking with people about school and their majors and future plans. I think it's a big misconception that the general education classes are easier than the major classes. I took 3 general education classes this summer because I thought that it would be easy, only to wind up having to do more work in those classes than I do in my upper division anthropology courses! (That is not to say that my upper division anthropology courses are easy; there are simply hardly any, if any at all, small assignments, with the main portion of your grade coming from a few large assignments.
