Established in 1982, Kennesaw State's athletics program first competed in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. In the mid-90s, the Owls migrated to the NCAA, where they claimed 7 Division II championships in activities as diverse as men's basketball, cheerleading, and women's soccer. Just as a real owl hones its night vision until it stops stubbing its talons on branches, the school continued its ascent until it joined the Division I Atlantic Sun Conference, netting two national tournament appearances in women's soccer as well as championships in men's track and field and women's cross-country.
Allyn Glover, the mastermind behind 13 Stories Haunted House, began testing his friends’ courage at the age of 13, when he constructed a homemade haunted trail. Since then, he has fine-tuned his scaring capabilities with the help of animatronics, elaborate sets, quality makeup, and a cast of actors. At 13 Stories Haunted House—which features old elevators that send visitors plummeting down all 13 floors—the aim is to turn visitors' hair white, much like when someone switches your shampoo with a big bottle of whiteout. On the off chance the house doesn’t do the trick, the Big Top Secret in 3D outdoor attraction attempts to scare guests with horror-filled images brought to life with the magic of 3-D glasses.
Atlanta Dance's seasoned instructors lead all fitness levels through country western, swing, Latin, and ballroom dance styles in a flexible schedule of group classes.

Feet flow within a supportive environment, fostering steadfast rapports among pupils as they conquer salsa's six sultry maneuvers or pay homage to all-American ballroom routines in the foxtrot's intricate choreography. Superfluous curves flee from Zumba's Latin-inspired beats, which chisel abs as hard as diamonds and legs able to roundhouse-kick through a parking meter with heart-pumping swivels and energizing undulations.
