About Sports and Recreation

Housed within the Division of Student Affairs, the Department of Sports and Recreation fosters the holistic development of KSU students’ physical, social, and leadership development through sport and recreational activities within a fun and supportive environment. We embrace the opportunity to provide programs and services that encourage students to develop or enhance a healthy lifestyle. We also strive to provide a range of activity choices on the Kennesaw campus and the Marietta campus. All programs and services are facilitated in-house by top notch professional staff members and student assistants. The programs provide an opportunity to compete at various levels, improve leadership skills, socialize, develop positive fitness practices, cultivate a connection to the university, explore the outdoors, and just have fun.






Giving Opportunities

Sports and Recreation has opportunities available to support our facilities, programs, and services. We strive to provide quality programs, excellent service and premier facilities to the students of Kennesaw State University as well as the campus community. There are opportunities for students to participate, find employment, enhance learning, develop lifelong healthy habits, engage in leadership offerings and cultivate a KSU experience that will make favorable memories long after graduation.
