The students of Kennesaw State University have voiced support for a football fee to be added to their semester tuition with the goal of establishing a football program at the school.
Of the 7,358 students who voted in last week’s survey, 55.5 percent of them voted to add the $100 per-semester fee, which would be initiated in fall 2012 at the earliest.
The positive vote followed the release of a report by KSU’s Football Exploratory Committee, released in mid-September, which concluded there was solid support for football on campus.
Headed by former Georgia coach and athletics director Vince Dooley, the committee’s much-awaited report recommended that the university move forward with plans to field a football team. At that time, KSU president Daniel S. Papp promised to gauge student support further before a decision was made.
