  • Researcher to discuss properties of plant growth

    Kennesaw State University’s Office of Research is hosting a one-hour web show every other Friday at 4 p.m. to showcase the varied research being conducted by KSU faculty members. “Research with Relevance” spotlights Kennesaw State researchers in a live interview followed by an interactive question-and-answer session with the virtual audience. In this week’s episode, Mario Bretfeld, assistant professor of biology in the College of Science and Mathematics, will discuss his research on the thermo-biological properties of organic and conventional tomatoes grown at the KSU Field Station.

  • Written by Whitten | Giving Thanks for a Resilient Community

    During the past eight months of this pandemic, my family has taken notice of the extra pleasure we seem to be finding in celebrating birthdays or planning a day off together. Perhaps it is from the break in the routine of daily life during this time, but it is also from a new time spent in more meaningful conversations (often over Zoom).  –  November 24, 2020

  • Kennesaw State graduate thrives in film industry

    In a Savannah movie theater 22 years ago, a 4-year-old girl sat, entranced, watching the blockbuster Titanic with her mother. It was an event that would make a lasting impression on her life and career. “It was the first movie I sat through and watched the whole thing – and it was a long movie – not saying a single word,” said Katie Boaen, now working in the prop and set decorating departments of Georgia’s thriving film industry. “I was captivated by it at that age – the scale of everything coming together; I remember it to this day.” Boaen is “a huge movie buff” who has always liked storytelling and mixing it with art. She graduated from the Joel A. Katz Music and Entertainment Business Program at Kennesaw State University in 2018. Her end goal was to turn a hobby into a profession and earn some income in the process.  –  November 20, 2020
