Kennesaw State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (20)
As with every thing else in life, it's what you make it - mingle, eat great food, study hard, party responsibly, get to know people who are not like you and learn more about yourself. I had a great time at KSU and will miss the community I've built for myself away from home. I had four years of helpful professors, supervisors, mentors and friends. While this is not the #1 school in the state by most standards, it's certainly prepared me for a prosperous career (I've been offered a job in my field). A great student is a great student, no matter what. Go Owls!
Kennesaw state was a wonderful school. The biology curriculum and professors adequately prepared me to enter medical school. The university fosters individual talent as well as community involvement. My work with clubs like AMSA was very fulfilling as well as a boost to my resume. I would definitely recommend this institution.
Kennesaw State's Political Science degree is definitely recommended to anyone interested in governmental processes, law creation, law application and politics. Their career services are immensely helpful in finding influential internships for school credit and are eager to help students with their applications and resumes for such positions. The teachers were an invaluable contribution to my education in this field of study and really encouraged me using the skills learned in class in outside jobs in the related field. If anyone is considering political science as their major Kennesaw State University will help push you towards completing the courses towards earning this degree.
The professors were all knowledgeable and helpful. They all wanted students to succeed, but did not coddle. There is a wide range of online courses, which makes scheduling easier. The classes were varied and interesting, and materials were not super expensive.
Kennesaw sees everyone as a number instead of a person. They keep charging you more and more and the money doesn't go towards more parking or more staff. Classes are very limited and hard to get into. Teachers aren't helpful and want you fail. Nursing is the hardest major at Kennesaw. You need at least a 3.85 in just your science classes. The next hardest major is business so if these are your career options I would look at other schools on top of Kennesaw. I would recommend looking at other schools over Kennesaw.
KSU was a great institution that has only seen growth since I started in 2012. For the size of the school, you still are able to get a smaller campus feel when in certain courses pertaining to your major. The integrative studies program did a great job supporting me when choosing which two concentrations I wanted to focus on.
I have been in the education field since graduating and feel that I was prepared very well. I know skills and technology related to my job that most other teachers were not trained in when they were in college. I think all my teachers knew their subject well and taught with enthusiasm especially the teachers in the college of education.
It's a great school. Although it has expanded quite a lot, it has still maintained a great homey and welcoming feeling.
My experience at KSU is by far my best college experience. They have given me practical knowledge that has enhanced my abilities in the classroom. They have pushed me out of my comfort zone and forced me to excel in the class. I truly believe that with the knowledge I have gained from KSU, I will be a better educator and leader.
I attended KSU for my entire college career, changing majors three times and picking up a minor. I found that the easiest parts were the middle years-- getting through the classes you need to get through. The campus is wonderful, the staff is helpful for the most part. Unfortunately, getting in and getting out are the hardest parts. You choose a major before receiving any counseling. KSU's mandatory freshman course is supposed to be helpful, but it focuses on how to study and attend campus events, not how to decide the rest of your life at age 18. Figuring out what exactly you need to do to graduate is also an issue. As you track your progress closer and closer to 100%, you need to continue communication with advisers from your program as well as for graduation to make sure you have your bases covered. You'll get mixed messages about whether certain classes count for certain credits, etc. If you can manage your own life and progress, KSU is a great school.
