Kennesaw State Spirit: KSU at 50 

October 7th, 2013 - June 20th, 2014

This exhibition celebrates the first half century of Kennesaw State University. The institution's growth from a local junior college to a nationally regarded comprehensive University in fifty years is astounding. Much of the credit for this development must go to the individuals who have served Kennesaw in myriad capacities over the years: administrators, staff, faculty, and students who personify the “Kennesaw Spirit:” This exhibit is dedicated to those individuals who have paved the way for Kennesaw's next fifty years and beyond.
Curated by the Department of Museums, Archives, and Rare Books.
