I would definitely recommend my community college to anyone looking. The staff is extremely kind and accessible as well as the students. For the most part, everyone is pretty friendly and welcoming. The campus is always extremely tidy, I absolutely have no complaints about my college.

Lauryn - 08/28/2019

If you are looking for a family in the college campus life then Kennedy King College is the way to go. Like in a family you have your up and down moments. But there are enough resources such as tutoring lab for every subject or the hidden pool with a beautiful view and secret entrance only "the cool kids" know about. The only thing you will regret about going to Kennedy King College is not coming sooner. So on behalf of everyone here, I would like to say "Welcome"!

Victoria - 05/09/2019

I like Kennedy King College. The professors and staff are very helpful. If you are a serious student, you will get involved in the school events, either by working at the school or by simply being on campus. Its a great school with very intelligent, diligent students.

Next, you should get a job to help pay for school instead of attending a school where it would be more difficult to find a job.

  5. Describe the students at your school.

    There really isn't a way to describe my classmates in one sentence, I mean some of them, usually the older folks, are really eager to learn and they stay focused 24-7, but others are treating college just like another level of high school by being petty, loud, and talking back to professors, not realizing it's harmful, & a waist of everyones time and money. But I did meet some people who were dedicated, and we had study groups and met often! because of dedication and effort we all passed!
