The fall 2016 semester was one of many new beginnings at Kennesaw State. With the largest enrollment in the university’s history, more students than ever were set to begin their school year on a positive note. However, not every student coming to KSU had a place to call home, whether on campus or off.
The fact is, there are several students enrolled at KSU who are homeless. So beginning this year, one university employee, Marcy Stidum, came up with an innovative response to this crisis – emergency housing for homeless students.
Kennesaw State’s Campus Awareness, Resource & Empowerment (CARE) Center oversees this initiative, as well as other efforts to help students who have experienced homelessness, food insecurity, and/or the foster care system. From running an on-campus food pantry and providing personal care items all the way to assisting with access to housing, the KSU CARE Center greatly supports students in need.

Before today you may not have realized how much we at KSU care about the well-being of our students. We don’t just care about the “U”, we really CARE about you!
