  • Creating community in KSU's newest living-learning village

    Family. That’s the one word that first-year student Henriona Coalson uses to describe her on-campus living experience at Kennesaw State. “This has been as close to a family to me as I’ve ever had in my whole entire life,” said Coalson, a business and pre-nursing major, who lived in group homes while in foster care prior to coming to KSU. Coalson resides in one of the University’s living-learning villages, a community of students with similar academic, personal or lifestyle interests who live together in the same section of on-campus housing. She is part of the newest community, called ASCEND, which opened earlier this fall and serves first-year students who have dealt with homelessness, food insecurity or the foster care system.  –  November 03, 2020

  • Kendrick Brothers: Alumni making movies with a mission

    Brothers Alex (’94) and Stephen Kendrick (’96) have enjoyed making movies together since they were kids, when they would run around their neighborhood with a Super 8mm film camera and act out scenes as characters such as Alabama Jones and Savings Bond – their versions of Indiana Jones and James Bond. The two Kennesaw State alumni have come a long way in their filmmaking. Alex and Stephen, who both earned communications degrees from Kennesaw State, have made several movies in the faith-based film genre and since 2013 have operated their own production company, Kendrick Brothers.  –  October 30, 2020
