I am a Freshman at KSU this year, and I love it. Most high school students think of Kennesaw as the school that is easy to get into when you are not accepted to higher-rank schools, but I think it is a great school. The campus is beautiful and the classes are great. I was afraid there would be many seminar-like classes, but I was pleased to find that I only had one class with 200+ students. The teachers are good, and the online system used to keep up with grades and assignments is great.

I attended KSU from Spring 2005 until just this past May 2008 when I graduated with honors with a double major of Computer Science and Information Security. I am a Non-Traditional Student, in other words... I was 37 when I made a decision to return to college for an updated degree. The class sizes are usually limited to no more than 45 students, with most being around 35 when they begin. Yes, there are some classes of 100+ students, such as American Government, however this is NOT the case with most classes. While attending KSU I worked as a Student Teaching Assistant as well as a Student Mentor for several younger students. I was involved in several student organizations including ISSA and ABLE and found the student body to be well rounded and diversified. The student body consists of students from more than 140 countries and the faculty nearly as many. If you are looking a 'Party' school KSU is not the place as there are very few on campus living students due to the nature of the campus. KSU has been a commuter school for many years but this is slowly changing. If you are looking for a state university where you can learn and grow... KSU should be at the top of your list.

The class sizes are so big that professors don't know what your name is, let alone if you are even in their class! The art appreciation class had 106 people in it! My American Government class had over 60! Its ridiculous. Besides that, most of the tests are done using multiple choice so they can grade them quickly - rather than essays, which is a real test whether or not you 'get it'. I found a better education elsewhere. I recommend it ONLY if you can't afford to go elsewhere!

I have a son that will be a sophmore at KSU this coming fall semester. He absolutely loves it and so do I! It's always easy to get the beginning financial papers in and he tells me all the time that he's glad he chose to go there. There a wide variety of things to do there, along with sports, extra curriculur, etc. For being such a big and accomplished school, the prices are actually cheaper than lots of other schools in Atlanta. It's located right off highway 75 and is in the heart of Kennesaw. The on campus housing is also great!
