"If you are looking at this University to complete an online course of study; I highly recommend you DO NOT register. I TRIED registering online, NEVER went to class did not have confirmation from KSU that I was even enrolled to start class and they charged me $2,000 and now it is on my credit report. I NEVER even got started in their course. LEASE BE CAREFUL when enrolling, make sure you are excepted, they charge you anyway!!! VERY disappointed in the lack of professionalism, and integrity in this University. Kim Layton"

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2022
"The Kennesaw State University School of Music is a wonderful place to study music. Not only are the professors 100% invested in your sucess, but are also some of the best performers in the United States and abroad. The student body is also caring and are willing to help you, should you need any assistance. The facilities used, such as the practice rooms are state of the art and are soundproof and the school is an all Steinway and Sons school, and is recgonised by the national associations of schools of music as being a premier school. Student life is also one of the best in the state of Georgia and being close to the city of Atlanta will offer its students acess to venues such as the Atlanta Opera, and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Attending this school is worth both your time, and your money."

"Kennesaw is a theory school, nothing more. They'll teach you all about the things you'd need to know to help write your professor's research article, but that's as far as they're concerned. They put more emphasis on research papers and standardized tests than practical training in any capacity. Their policies for enrollment and graduation are convoluted to the point of hilarity, until they block you from graduating because you didn't properly fill out a form. The campus is also huge, and parking is a nightmare. There are never enough spots, and parking is ridiculously expensive for how poorly managed it is. They're increasingly blatant about their greed, and push students to buy expensive meal plans and "specialized" books for courses that are of course written by their professors. The professors are either polite but distant, power-obsessed megalomaniacs, vain bullies obsessed with the smell of their own flatulence. All in all, it's a fine way to waste half a decade."

Courtney Williams - 7/27/2019
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2017
"I found the classes that were required to be interesting and stimulating. Unlike the traditional student, I worked forty hours a week and took the maximum credit hours available so I did not have time for extracurriculars outside of class so I cannot give an opinion on what is offered to the students over at Kennesaw State. Overall my majority of my professors were supportive and some provided my letters of recommendation to get into a Grad program. Classes are larger but seats do fill up rather quickly so make sure you have your advising in advance to know what pathway is the most necessary."

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2018
"Kennesaw State was an excellent school with great facilities. The class sizes were a lot smaller than those of the bigger state schools, so I really felt like my voice was heard by professors. I studied exercise science and we had some of the newest technology across the country. Also our teachers were really dedicated to finding the newest and most accurate information for the students. They attended a big exercise science conference every year to get the newest info and even encouraged students to come with them."

"Kennesaw State is a great university that is close to home and affordable. The campuses are nice and the food is great. Parking can kind of be a nightmare depending on when and where your classes are. The Biology department is great and my only complaint is that they need to find a dedicated pre-medical advisor with good resources for pre-medical students. The current advisors are fantastic, but it would be nice to have a pre-medical department. I also think that there needs to be a better and easier way to join research in undergrad."

KSUalumni2078 - 6/4/2019
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018
"While KSU was fine in terms of academics, student life, and facility quality, they dont care about students getting jobs at all. Me and many other graduates I know have all been having a very hard time finding jobs with our Communications degrees. No biggie, well just go to career services and have them guide us: except its literally one guy. One human being and like two assistants just do resume edits and mock interviews. Wheres the leads? Wheres all these companies in Atlanta who are supposedly partnered with our school?Wheres the detailed guidance to help us who just gave you a least $40,000 each and 4-8 years of our time? You have 1 person to help with the whole reason anyone is there? Kennesaw is a for-profit only school. And I say school because while we all should appreciate an education for an education, it should also pay for itself in time once you graduate and once you land your first career path oriented job. But again, Kennesaw does not care at all about you one single bit. Theyll completely change the name of your degree in your last semester without telling you and will offer no help or reconciliation (happened to me) and then not care if you find a job. Its all trash. KSU is trash."

"KSU is an amazing school. They are committed to providing their students with the best education possible and continue to make improvements to push closer to the feel of University. If I were able to attend a traditional classroom setting I would, without a doubt, be completing my graduate studies there as well!!"

Dekota - 3/19/2019
Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2019
"Kennesaw State is the not a good decision at all for construction majors. The program is ran by a delusional engineer that has no field experience and is out of touch with the industry. Kennesaw is now a R2 research university which is great for other programs but hurts the construction program because now ALL professors employed by KSU MUST have a Doctoral degree. The construction program and students benefit more from professors that have actual WORK experience. There is no one in construction that has a doctoral degree. So now all the instructors for this program will have never worked in the field, and do not have actual knowledge. They will only know what has been written in a textbook somewhere. Besides the points above the construction department has experienced uncontrolled growth just in the 3 years I have been here. This growth has led to class shortages and graduation delays. My own graduation date has been pushed two semesters as a result. There simply isn't enough classes nor seats in each class for the number of students they have in the program now. Another problem is what classes the school does offer within the program 4/5 times they have scheduling conflicts to where a student can only take one class or the other without having to fight for an override. Basically the gist of this is if you're planning on a career in construction, go to Auburn or Clemson. If you plan on construction engineering go to Georgia Tech. KSU will only s**** you."

"Kennesaw State University is an absolutely wonderful value for the cost of tuition. The B.A. in Geography program at KSU provides instruction not only in the human dimension but the physical/technological dimension of Geography as well. The school currently offers one of the only online bachelor's degrees in Geography and does so at a cost per credit hour far below that of the other schools. Overall the school performs well in the realm of Anthropology and Geography (in my experience) though I cannot attest to the quality of its other departments. I would suggest KSU to anyone looking for an affordable, fair quality segue into the fields of Geography, Natural Resources, Anthropology, or Archaeology (as well as many other related fields such as GIS)."
