Kennesaw State is an excellent school with an abundance of resources. The diversity is amazing and the school spirit is awesome to experience. There are a variety of clubs and groups that students may join and be apart of. The classes are also taught very well and the professors are extremely knowledgeable.

Nice campus, new facilities. Most professors are great but ive had a couple bad ones. Party life is what you make of it. Greek life is your best chance to go to good parties, otherwise you just need to know the right people and socialize.

It's hard to make friends here as a minority student. All of the other organizations and some people are open to having new people or even being friendly and I have a hard time finding that experience
