4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Kennesaw State University is close enough to the city of Atlanta to provide various activities and experiences, but far enough so as not to disturb or distract from your studies. The shopping is great because KSU is located very close to a shopping mall. Since KSU is near Atlanta, there are always different cultural events going on. There are sports games to go to, concerts, the aquarium, the zoo, etc.
