History

The university has undergone a number of changes in name (and mission) over its short existence. The university was officially founded on October 9, 1963, when the Georgia Board of Regents approved the establishment of Cobb County Junior College. By August 1965, it was officially named Kennesaw Junior College with Horace Sturgis serving as its first president. In 1976, it became a four-year college, Kennesaw College, which allowed it to grant its first bachelor's degrees to seventy students in June 1980. Shortly after, Kennesaw State's first president retired and in 1981 Betty Siegel, know as "The Betty" to many people, became the second president of KSU and the first female university president in the University System of Georgia.
