At KSU, we put our students first in everything we do all 42,000+ of them and this starts from day one. When you enroll at Kennesaw State, you learn from our world-class faculty and gain academic support from in-the-know advisors. You’ll find your community by becoming involved in one or more of our 300+ student organizations, living in one of our on-campus residence halls and refueling at one of our award-winning campus dining options. And you’ll find your spirit cheering for one of our 18 NCAA Division I sports teams.
