Discount tickets to campus art/theater/dance performances.
Discounts at Local Businesses
Members receive a Retirees Association I.D. card. Many businesses in Cobb County offer discounts to the KSU family, so present this and enjoy your reward for many years of service.
KSU Bookstore Discount
The Bookstores offer discounts to retirees on many items. Percentage varies, and textbooks are not included.
Free Parking On Both Campuses
Make a copy of your ID card and leave it on the dash of your car when parking in the Visitors Lots on the Kennesaw campus or the Marietta campus to enjoy free parking. Check the campus maps for locations of visitor parking lots.
Card Access to the Employee Fitness Center
You may also present your I.D. card to the Employees Fitness Center and it will become your door access after you complete paperwork to join the Center. Fitness Center membership is free to KSU retirees.
Check-out Privileges at the KSU Library
The I.D. card can be used to check out books or videos and use other services provided by the libraries on both campuses. Most digital resources are only available to employed faculty/staff and students per licensing restrictions.
Opportunities for Service
Graduation – Retirees provide a valuable service by ushering at the commencement ceremonies every semester.
Helping at campus events – From time to time, departments on campus may request retirees to serve as ushers, hosts, docents, guides, proctors, facilitators or speakers for events.
Be sure to continue to check out this web site and the Golden Owls Retirees Newsletter for other benefits coming soon.
Thank you for your willingness to stay connected to the new KSU.
