The Peak Magazine

The Peak, formerly the Engineering Technician, was established in 1948 at SPSU and became The Sting newspaper. A year after consolidation, The Sting magazine changed its name to The Peak, committed to bringing news and entertainment the students of KSU want. Our publication is a great tool for all organizations to use to promote their activities, events and causes. The staff works hard to engage students in campus life and conversations. All content is student produced. Peak publishes monthly and is available in print at news stands across campus and online at ksulifestyle.com.

Student Media Board

The Kennesaw State Student Media Board was a standing committee of students, faculty, staff and others that met monthly during the school year to oversee and advise certain areas of the KSU Student Media operation. The board was primarily advisory in capacity, but did have authority over the selection and, if necessary, dismissal of editors in chief and other top student managers that the board appointed. The board also reviewed grievances and complaints and advised student media to ensure that effective service is being given to the student body and to protect the rights of these organizations to operate free of censorship. The SMB was dissolved in 2017 when Student Media as a department was discontinued. For more information on the KSU SMB and past minutes, visit the Student Media Board page.
