Number 5: KSU Gives Students Opportunities for Research at the Undergraduate Level

Did you know Kennesaw State has been designated by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Learning as a research university? 
That’s right!  And KSU even boasts an Office of Undergraduate Research dedicated to promoting high-quality undergraduate research opportunities across all majors. 
But let’s back up for a moment and define what exactly we mean by “undergraduate research” and how these opportunities will benefit you.  According to the Council on Undergraduate Research, this research is defined as “an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline.”  This means you have the opportunity to contribute something meaningful to your field of study before you get your degree!  Talk about a resume builder! 
What’s more, there are even ways to be awarded funding for your work as well as for you to travel and present your findings. 
We’d love for you to come join the growing number of undergraduate researchers at KSU.  Your opportunity awaits!

Number 6: KSU Athletics Carry a Winning Reputation

Big-time athletics often set the tone for an exciting atmosphere on a college campus, and even more so if they come with a reputation of winning.  That’s exactly what you’ll get at Kennesaw State!
Just to highlight a few examples, our football team was in contention for the postseason in only its second year of existence, baseball had a 2014 Super Regional showdown at Louisville, women’s basketball is now being coached by a legend, our volleyball team is a conference champion, and we sent a track and field star to the 2016 U.S. Olympic trials.  
Our athletic teams make us proud and unite Owl Nation unlike anything else on campus.  They lead the way for school spirit, which in KSU’s history has never been higher.
And don’t miss this - once tuition and fees are paid, students gain access to all home athletic events at no additional cost. 
So come be a part of the growing tradition that is Owl Athletics, and let this winning reputation reflect on you, too!

Number 7: KSU Ranks in the Top 50 Worldwide for Game Design

Our Bachelor of Science in Computer Game Design and Development is just one of the many innovative degrees you can get at Kennesaw State.  It’s also one of the best of its kind in the world!
The Princeton Review has rated KSU at number 37 on their list of the top 50 schools for studying Game Design at the undergraduate level.  The program has drawn considerable attention from outside the university, including from The Atlanta Journal Constitution and Microsoft.
Students enrolled in this program aren’t just playing games, they’re developing digital media for education, entertainment, healthcare, and research, too.  This leads to a very broad level of expertise in computing hardware and software, so the careers open to these students are as varied as the content they‘re creating.
Does the idea of studying human-computer interaction, simulation, artificial intelligence, or the history and theory of gaming sound exciting to you?  How about developing content for emerging domains like MMOG or mobile gaming? 
If so, let KSU’s degree in Computer Game Design and Development be the launching pad for your career.  When it comes time to graduate, you could be among the best in the world at what you do!
