Kennesaw is definitely high on my list to attend the institution. I've taken multiple tour of the Kennesaw campus and have enjoyed every minute of it. The university really prepared the guide for whatever question because anything I asked, the tour guide was more than willing to answer and even if on the off chance they did not know, there would be a student commuting to a class who could cheerfully respond. Of course, every campus could use some improvement but it seems like Kennesaw actually cares about its campus and is constantly improving even if those are trivial fixes! I love Kennesaw, GO OWLS!

At first, I would get nervous and almost cry when someone mentioned the word "college" to me. I went to an open house at my school and absolutely fell in love. The food was amazing, the classrooms are all decent sizes, and the professors I have had have all been wonderful. When I started I didn't really know anybody and my roommates were all a lot olde than me. I quickly made friends who will most likely be lifelong friends. The acedemics have been challenging but bearable. I have really enjoyed my college experience so far and I can't wait to see what the next few years hold!

I applied for housing minutes after it opened so I had no problem getting the dorm I wanted. I love where I live. I love the setup of our dorm, which is two bedrooms, a kitchenette, a vanity area, and a bathroom. The amenities are easy to use, and laundry is free which is great. I love the people that I have met on my floor so far and my residents' assistant is awesome! We have floor movie nights and dinners and it's been a great way to meet people that live around us. It's pretty expensive to live here though.
