Check out these little-known facts about Kennesaw State University’s College of Continuing and Professional Education. You might find something that will surprise you!
Yes, it used to be an outlet mall.
KSU Center, that is, until the early 90s when it became home for our college.
We like prizes.
Specifically, Braves tickets, Target gift cards, KSU swag bags and more … you never know when a Facebook contest will pop up and you can win big! It’s all to say THANK YOU for being a lifelong learner!
