A Message from the Dean of Students Office

Kennesaw State University

Welcome to the Kennesaw State University family! We at KSU know that students and parents have many great choices available to them to meet their higher educational needs, and we are honored that you chose us as your college home.

How a student connects with an institution during the first few weeks on campus is critically important to long-term success. The most important role for the Office of the Dean of Students is helping students and their families navigate the challenges of the collegiate experience all while connecting you with the myriad of resources KSU has to offer. Just as the academic deans of each of the colleges lead and support the in-class experiences of our students, the Office of the Dean of Students helps to support the co-curricular experiences that support all of the ways and places that students learn and grow.

Navigating a large university can be challenging for both students and parents. When in doubt, think of our office as a concierge to the University. We cannot resolve every issue a student may face, but we can guide the student in the right direction to find the help the student needs. No matter how large KSU grows, every student matters to us. Ideally we want our students to feel empowered to reach out to us, and during the transition we partner with parents and families to encourage students as they develop their own sense
of independence.

KSU is a special place, and we appreciate how great our students and their families are. In a few short years we look forward to greeting you at graduation as your student crosses the stage into a new and exciting life as a member of our KSU alumni. In the meantime, we hope to see you at Parent and Family Programming events, especially Family Weekend! If you ever need to reach us, just email [email protected] or call (470) 578-6367 (KSU-ODOS).
