What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Get everything turned in early. I am currently scrambling to get enough scholarship money to return to my education. If you wait too long to get your scholarships and financial aid turned in, it will be difficult to impossible to get enough money so that you don't have to get a loan. Also, if you can, live on campus. I live at home and I can't tell you how many activities I've missed out on because of it. It isn't bad to live at home, but if you've gone home for the day, you don't feel like coming back after class to do things.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice to parents and students about finding the right college and making the most of their experience would be to find a college that has the most that it can offer it students for their money. Wiether they are competing in college athletics or they just want to focus on graduating and obtaining a degree. I think that they need to find whatever school can help them achieve that goal to get the most they can out of life.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

King provided many unique opportunities compared with my other considerations such as Christian community, a superb biology department, great facilities, and an excellent dining hall. The friends I made while studying and playing basketball at King will more than likely be lifelong, not to mention an important factor in my success at King. Also, the challenging biology department is very unique producing many medical professionals. Our student center complex is by far the nicest arena in our NAIA conference. Furthermore, the dining hall provides a healthy variety of foods, unlike most other colleges and universities I visited.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Choosing the right college and knowing how to make the most of the opportunity is an extremely important life decision. The best advice I am able to give is to visit several campuses. Take a scheduled tour and a non-scheduled tour in order to observe campus life. Talk with students on campus for a more accurate opinion of the school's professors, programs, facilities, food, and activities. Definitely choose a college that you believe will meet your academic needs, but do not neglect observing the sense of community amongst the professors, employees, and students. Also, talk with the employees of the business and registrar?s office if possible. These people are very important and can either be a headache or helpful. This was very important for me because the first day seemed to set the tone for the rest of the semester and any opportunity to avoid added stress is always appreciated. People will greatly influence your college experience. In order to make the most of the opportunity, get involved with the school and the surrounding community. The relationships you build and the impact you make on others, while studying at any university, will be critical to your success.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

King College has a very strong sense of community with highly qualified, caring professors and employees. King offers many great opportunities to be successful as a student, as well as later in a professional career. The education is of extremely high quality producing many doctors and nurses, as well as other professionals. The campus is located in the Appalachian Mountains in Bristol, TN surrounded with many recreational opportunities. Furthermore, the Christian support and life training are very important. King teaches and holds to high accord Christian moral values which prepare and train students for success in life.

Describe the students at your school.

Classmates at King College tend to be very friendly, but very reserved in a impersonal sort of way until you are able to get to know them better.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice that I would like to give to students about finding the right college is to first learn about yourself, and know what it is that motivates you as a student and also what causes you distraction. With that knowledge I would then encourage you to look at schools that give you the chance to learn academically, while also having the resources to provide social and fun distractions periodically, to help enhance all aspects of your life both as a scholar, and as a citizen of the world. As a parent who perhaps knows their child better than most, my advice about finding the right college is to first look at your child with as much objectivity as possible; as someone who has knowledge about the personality of their son/daughter you can advocate schools that set them up for success rather then failure. And to help them to make the most out of their college experience I encourage all parents to gradually pull back and let your child learn how to stand on their own. This I believe will be the final tool needed for your child to do well in college and in life.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about Kng College is that there seems to be a very subtle, but defined social pecking order based on your financial situation; it becomes very quickly known who attends King College on scholarship and financial aid, and who attends on personal family funds, in short somtimes King College, while an excellent place to obtain an education from an academic standpoint, does nothing to discourage the high school type cliques that form on campus, hence one of the main reason for lack of alumni participation.

King College allows you to prepare yourself for the future by exploration, study, and finding yourself, giving you the tools to start your future.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit several schools because sometimes your first choice isn't your best choice. Get involved in campus activities because that's how you make friends and learn about your school. Find out the activities that can be done around the city your campus is in...if there is alot of nightlife chances are the focus of the kids at that school will be drinking, if its has alot of outdoor activities, that will be the focus. Finding out about the town around the school is just as important as the school itself.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known how to think outside of the box more, and been taught more critical thinking skills

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Take your time, remember you are most likely going to be paying the school to go there. Make sure it is what you are looking for. Do not just settle for anything. Make sure you take the campus tour at the schools your looking at. Really take the tour seriously look at every little thing. Also look at the surrounding area. Make sure there are thing to do and stores around. The tour is the most important part in deciding the school you are going to.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Sometimes the teachers expect too much out of the students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't let money be an issue for going to the college of your choice, most financial aid departments will help you find the scholarships that you will need to attend their school. You will be there for years and it's important to be happy where you go to school because it influences how hard you work. Meet the professors in your field before committing because you'll be spending a lot of time with them, if you don't hit it off or if they don't take the time to meet you, it's an indicator of what's to come when you're in their classes. The professors that you have will be guiding you to achieve your dreams, don't choose someone who is not interested in you and your plans.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That I would change my major and have to stay another year without financial aid.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

How easy it is to lose financial aid, and if you do you're stuck because a lot of credits will not transfer to another school that's cheaper.
