Spring Semester Wrap Up

Kennesaw eNews

By Ashley Berberich

Summer is just around the corner! From using Meal Plan swipes to textbook buybacks and rental returns, here are a few things to keep in mind before the semester’s end.

Textbook Buybacks and Rental Returns

University Stores buys back textbooks all year long, but our spring book buyback week runs from Tuesday, May 1 to Tuesday, May 8. Your student can look up how much their textbooks are worth here.

All textbook rentals are due Wednesday, May 9. If textbooks are not returned by May 9, the credit card associated with the signed rental agreement will be charged.

Questions? Please contact University Stores at 470-578-6261 (Kennesaw Campus), 470-578-5111 (Marietta Campus) or email [email protected].

Meal Plans

The last day to use Meal Plan swipes and Dining Dollars is Monday, May 7. Dining Dollars may be used at any eatery on campus, and your student can pre-pay using Dining Dollars when they order food for pick up through the Tapingo app. University Dining also has several Dining Dollars specials:

  • Starbucks at the Social Sciences Building is selling study session sets for $25 and $50 Dining Dollars with goodies such as ground coffee, sweets and more!
  • Stop by The Commons or Stingers dining halls for To-Go Value Meals ($10 Dining Dollars for three items, limited to one of each) including chicken tenders, pizza, garlic knots, fries, soda and more.
  • Cram Sessions will be held from Tuesday, May 1 to Thursday, May 3 at the dining halls. Students can stop by to study and enjoy their favorite breakfast foods between 9 and 11 p.m. for $7.50 Dining Dollars or one Meal Plan swipe.

Benefits of Living on Campus

We’re now accepting applications for 2018-2019 housing! Students who live on campus are a short walk away from their classes, the rec center, on-campus dining halls and more. Housing and Residence Life at KSU also offers support to students like tutoring in the residence halls and on-site computer labs. Six housing choices are available to upper class students, all with private bedrooms except Howell Hall, a traditional-style resident hall. Students who live on campus are shown to earn better grades, make more friends, and have an overall better college experience. Click here to apply today! Please contact Housing and Residence Life at [email protected] or 470-578-5483 if you have questions, or visit to reserve your room today.
