“There is something at this school for everyone: tons of clubs and organizations, great food, nice residence halls, and awesome people. It’s gorgeous in all seasons, especially fall. If KSC doesn’t have the major you are interested in, you can design your own. There’s so much to love about Keene State!”– Jenny Stronk, Communication
