I Came To Kennesaw State University With Transferring On My Mind And Now I Am Set To Graduate From Here

I wanted to attend to a well-known named university.


For those of you that do not know what Kennesaw State University is, it's an upcoming, local D1 university in northern Georgia. KSU has 2 campus locations, making it the 2nd biggest college in all of Georgia. If you attend Kennesaw State, you thought the process was more than likely to take your core classes and transfer to a "better" college.

I came to Kennesaw State with the intention of transferring to a bigger D1 university in-state or out-of-state after taking my core classes (like 95% of the study body). Kennesaw is mainly a commuter college, and it is only 25 minutes away from my parents' houses (without traffic). I figured it was the ideal school to attend to for the time being. I did not join any clubs, extracurricular activities, intramural sports, and etc, because I had the mindset of transferring anyway. So, what was the point?

I did not care to get to know my classmates, my professors, and advisor. I did not want to meet up after class hours to study or just to get to know them more because I was transferring so what's the point? I got into a handful of other schools in Georgia and out-of-state, therefore I was very ready to transfer.

The more I thought negatively about Kennesaw, the more I did not enjoy being there. I wanted out more than ever. I found out my junior year that Kennesaw State University Coles Business School "Michael J. Coles College of Business" is the best business school in Georgia and one of the best in the nation, especially for my majors. I did my research further and noticed that Coles Business School was growing rapidly and improving year by year. Later, I knew that this small D1 college was more fitting for me than a gigantic university campus.

If it was not for KSU I would have made the friends I made here, the surprising and remarkable grades, the great opportunities I've achieved and received, I would not have the confidence to apply to graduate schools and actually got accepted to most of them. I would have joined The Odyssey Online and found my passion for writing and managing stellar people. Kennesaw State University has changed my life for the better, and soon I will be a proud Alumni no matter how small it stays or how big it gets.

Hooty Hoo.

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
