Frequently Asked Questions

  • Student Competition Teams at Kennesaw State are student-run organizations that compete in academically related competitions. Teams travel around the nation (and the world) to represent KSU as they compete against other colleges and universities.
  • Participation in Competition Teams is limited to currently enrolled, degree seeking students. Specific teams may have additional requirements, such as training, mandatory meetings, etc. It’s best to contact a specific team for more information.
  • No. Though some competition teams are focused specifically around academic work in a particular area (e.g. mechanical engineering or foreign policy), teams are open to membership from all majors. It’s helpful to remember that in addition to their competition, teams are also student organizations needing assistance with marketing, finances, recruitment, and other team functions.
  • GHC students can participate in some aspects of competition teams at KSU. They can assist with the work of teams on campus in preparation or construction, but they may not serve as officers in the teams or travel with and/or compete with a team at the competition.
  • Dual Enrollment students can participate in some aspects of competition teams at KSU. They can assist with the work of teams on campus in preparation or construction, but they may not serve as officers in the teams or travel with and/or compete with a team at the competition.
  • Contact the individual team. Visit the Competition Teams Directory to find the team you are interested in joining. You'll join the team by visiting Owl Life. In most instances, members are asked to attend meetings and assist with team operations. 
  • Yes. Membership is not limited to one competition team. That being said, before joining multiple teams, you should consider the obligations of both teams in addition to your academic coursework and other responsibilities.
  • Competition Teams first and foremost are Registered Student Organizations (RSOs). As such, the first step to creating a new Competition Team would be to research the steps to creating a new RSO. In addition, Competition Teams are uniquely attached to an academic department who sponsors the team’s activities. Based on the type of team you are considering creating, you should contact the appropriate academic department as well. Lastly, if you need any additional assistance or insight, feel free to reach out to the Department of Student Activities for assistance.
