4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: KSU is in the metropolitan Atlanta area, so a 30-minute drive will get you everything the city of Atlanta has to offer. There's a mall right near campus that the buses go to, and there are a lot of strip malls with basically anything you could think of. It's a nice little residential area, but traffic can get really, really bad.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: it is near atlanta, which is nice. kennesaw has some charm but is kind of rough near the campus, many apartment complexes and busy shopping centers

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: KSU is a nice college town with several different opportunities, but it does tend to get boring because everyone goes home on the weekends. There is a local club called Electric Cowboy which is fun to go to to dance and hangout, but there are some creeps there. Unless you want to drive to Atlanta which is about 20 minutes away there is not much to do party wise, but there are several malls and movie theaters and fun centers to attend for entertainment.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Kennesaw is a great spot, It is not too far from the city, and it falls in between rural and urban.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are all kinds of places to shop and eat, but not many attractions unless you head into Atlanta.
