Fall 2019: Openings and Entrances


This is an important week at KSU as we open the 2019-20 academic year. Yesterday, we welcomed a record-breaking number of new and returning students with a First Day of School Cake celebration on both campuses. We partnered that event this year with the launch of our new “Find Your Wings” branding campaign, which will signal to all the values and opportunities available at Kennesaw State University.  

Accompanying the opening of this school year is the creation of a new entrance fitting for this exceptional university. We are in the midst of building a bold new entryway for the Kennesaw Campus, one that matches the outstanding quality of this university and announces to all who come to or near campus that they have arrived at Kennesaw State University.

This official front door to the university will create a well-defined and inviting entrance to the Kennesaw campus for students, faculty, staff and visitors, including prospective KSU students and their families. Located at the intersections of Chastain Road and Frey Road, and Chastain Road and KSU Road, new campus gateway signage will stand next to a new front lawn. In addition to this sophisticated gateway, the fences are being removed, and the sidewalk will be widened to enhance pedestrian safety and create a public space next to a beautiful new front lawn. The project is expected to be completed in January 2020.   

As you enter into this exciting new school year and eventually enter campus through a beautiful new front entry, remember that you are what makes KSU a world-class university. Best wishes as you find your wings at KSU this semester.
