Welcome to the Owl’s Nest
“The fall represents a new beginning, a new adventure for everyone.”
— Kennesaw State President Sam Olens, Opening of the University, Fall 2017
If you’ve seen the student-produced #HootyHoo video, you know that Brooks Payne, Jacob Morgan, Rasheed Hall and their crew got it right. They captured the essence of what it means to be a part of the Owl’s nest, where we work hard and play hard.
Here’s some information to help you settle in and get going:
From First-Year Convocation to movie nights to Bazaar on the Bricks, the Kennesaw and Marietta campuses will be chock-full of entertainment and activities to welcome you to campus and get you back in the groove! Discover activities (and free swag!) each day.
Moving into on-campus housing? Be sure you have everything on the pre-arrival checklist and get insider tips on what to bring to campus.
Whoooooo’s ready to cheer on the Owls? Check out the season schedule, stadium policies, tailgating information and student ticket access.
Be a true Owl and learn some facts about the great horned owl species. While you’re at it, take a moment to learn the fight song and alma mater. Then, make yourself truly official by signing the Owl Creed.
