In fifty short years, Kennesaw had far exceeded the expectations of its founders. Decade after decade, the dreams of campus visionaries reached fruition and became the foundation stones for the plans of new generations of builders. The first eight yellow-brick structures still stood in 2012, but not one retained its original name or function.
Kennesaw was blessed throughout its history with visionary leadership, an excellent faculty and staff, and a foundation of extraordinarily talented individuals who donated their time, creativity, and financial resources to the betterment of the university. Kennesaw was always blessed with outstanding students and alumni. Like many modern colleges created in the aftermath of World War II, Kennesaw’s average SAT scores did not begin to measure the true quality of nontraditional students who brought commitment, maturity, and life experiences to the enrichment of their academic careers.
