If I could go back in time, there would only be one thing that I would tell myself; to "stay ahead of your work!" While I took a few advanced placement courses in high school, they were nothing compared to the workload of 5 or 6 college courses, and getting on top of my work was a challenge at first. Other than this, I adjusted to college life very well; I was ready to start learning about things that I loved and to meet new people. It was surprising how well I adjusted because I went to a school in a different state, where I didn't know a single person, except my roommate who I had only talked to briefly. Everyone there was so nice and they were genuinely interested in my success, especially my professors, which gave me all the confidence I needed in order to do well. Attending King's College has been the best decision of my life, and I can't wait to see what's in store for my senior year.
The worst thing about my school was the amount of cliques that existed there and the fact that most students went to high school together. In addition, the small size of the school presented limited extracurricular activity opportunities including sport clubs and intramurals. The surrounding area was also pretty limited with activities for students, so house parties were a regular thing which I did not attend due to my disinterest in them.

Anyone can attend this school because of how open and diverse this school is; even the most shy person would find people that could become lifelong friends.
King's College was my first choice from various factors including cost and closeness to home. The friends I have made here will definitely be friends for life. As long as you get involved and keep busy, the experience at King's is worthwhile.
If you like big crowds, loud fraternity parties, going out on Wednesday nights do drink, and other typical college settings, this college isn't for you. We are small tight-knit school where everyone knows everyone through somebody.
I would say the most frustrating thing about my school is that sometimes things take a little longer than expected to process. Things such as financial aid and grades.
Most of my classmates (not all) were distant, snobby, lazy when it came to studying and school work, uninterested, lacked motivation, and spent most of their time concentrating on making plans for the weekend rather than on the class material that was being presented.
Kings College is a great school because it is a small college which enabled me to have a personal realtionship with my teachers. The ratio between the teacher to student is 18 to 1. This has always made me feel comfortable asking questions during class or seeking extra help afterward. I am currently into my 2nd year and have achieved a gpa of 3.8. I feel that my success has come from the staff's motivation and my hard work.
King's College focuses service more than anything else. We are determined to give back to the local community that has welcomed the students and staff to its city. The faculty is dedicated whole heartedly to its students, and put in time beyond the class and required office hours to make sure students get the assistance they need. The school has a 99% career placement rate within six months of graduation. The family atmosphere makes King's a great place to continue one's education.
I wish I knew that the surrounding nearby area can be unsafe to walk alone at night
Its located in a city so there are lots of places to eat if you dont want to eat at the school. We have a lot of teen clubs close by if your're looking for a place to go out with friends. They have newly renevated apartments that are suite style.
King's College London is an amazing school in the heart of one of the most international cities of the world. Going to a university abroad for a Masters degree is quite a learning experience and I'm cherishing every moment of it.
