Diversity: We are all learning about cultural differences, religious differences, ethnic, political, economic background---or lack there of, and sexual orientation is celebrated. We have a GLBT organization and participate in the Gay Pride Parade in Atlanta.

We are not perfect, but with education and exposure we are closing the gap and learning to accept that we all are different in many ways.

4 College Junior

Diversity: The campus of Kennesaw State University is diverse in some aspects, and homogenous in other areas. The student body has a diverse economic background. For the most part, the student body's religious background is Christian. There is not a large diversity of sexual orientation but, for the most part, the student body is very accepting of what ever sexual orientation you may be.

Diversity: I feel that there is a hug diversity of backgrounds on campus. I do not like that some time we get students who are preaching and trying to push their religion off on the stundents

Diversity: There is a mix of people who come from all walks of life and also a good mix of nontraditional students

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Kennesaw definitely promotes the idea of diversity through clubs, sponsor groups, and student life throughout the school year. They are many diverse couples, friend groups, and interest groups throughout the campus. Seminar classes even focus so much as to spend at least 2 weeks discussing diversity and how important it is to society and the campus today.
