The Commons at Kennesaw State

I photographed The Commons dinning hall at Kennesaw State University for a living section feature for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday, July 20, 2012. The Commons can seat 1,350 people in the 54,000 square foot facility and uses locally sourced meats and produce. The dining hall is also part of the Farm to Campus initiative which receives produce from Apple Springs Farm in Ball Ground, Fountain Gate Community Garden in Kennesaw and the Governor’s Garden in Atlanta as well as others.

  1. Nice article about Kennesaw Dining, especially liked that you included students, parents, etc so people could relate. Even more surprised to see one of my coworkers included in your article. Looks like Deb Masdea decided to go back for Sushi.
