| There are good instructors, but be sure to read reviews on them. There are MANY that just don't need to be there. Too many out of work public school teacher with masters and some that have just been there way to long. If you are a naturally good student and know how to play the game, you'll be fine. But if you need actual help - not just on an occational assignment - this is not the place to be. This is a communtor college with dorms and from the accademic stand point - you will be just another number. The instructors in the gen ed classes are not always good. You have to play their game and it's often all about them. Seriously consider a GOOD community college to get through the gen ed courses before you transfer. Since the Regents Writing Exam is gone KSU has made a HUGE change in the ENG courses. They are meant to weed out the average student. Why go where you will not do well, when you can attend somewhere else and not have to go through hell just to pass a Freshman english class.KSU is growing fast. I've heard that want to be the next UGA. KSU is a lot of fluff. The costs have sky rocketed in the last few years. Even the non-resident students have to buy the food plan which is priced way too high. My sister graduated in 2009 and looking back at her experiences compaired to mine, this is a far different school. Think twice before making this your first choice. |

| I really like Kennesaw state university; it is the faculty I have issue with. They are not helpful at all. They call themselves ACADEMICIANS and treat you like dirt and uneducated individual who don?t worth much. My advice to you is not to register with the department of Language, French. They don?t speak the language themselves and can?t teach it. |

| I knew that I wanted to learn, get involved with the school, and move on to grad studies. I transferred to ksu, thinking that I would graduate quickly...uh no. I only have a few classes left, but classes I need are quickly filled and there is only like one or two sections avail. for the whole semester! In the psyc dept. they will only take 1 upper-division psyc course from outside of ksu, so you can't just take it somewhere else then transfer it in. |
*I am really considering transferring!
*Another thing...I started to notice some students who have been at ksu for years...like 7-10yrs! I thought it was odd, so I looked up the graduation rate for ksu. I had to really search to find the info. Only 7% of ksu students graduate within 4yrs! 7% out of over 20,000 students is not many. It only goes up to about a 33% graduation rate in 6 yrs. Wow! So that's why I have met so many people who have been there for years. I would encourage anyone to look up the information as well.
*I would not personally recommend this school for future students. I am also very glad to see such a strong representation of ksu through these posts. LISTEN TO THEM!!
