Kennesaw State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (27)
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.
The school is very strong academically. Many of the professors have real-world experience that play a large part in their teaching and material. The school continues to grow, and with the addition of a football team, the unity of the school will come together more.
Kennesaw State s a wonderful university! I loved the time I spent there and am proud to be a KSU Alumni!
Stay on top of all your paperwork. Be sure to study every chance you get. Voice recording my notes brought me the best results on exams.
