Describe your favorite campus traditions.

It is accrediated in business (accounting, finance, marketing, etc), education, and the pa program. They have small class size and will give you the attention needed. Also, the professors are here to help you achieve your goals.

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

I would tell myself to get over whatever it was that made me shy and make the most out of life. During the first two years but especially my freshman year, I only had a couple of friends and didn't do much. Now I go out and hang with friends and meet people that I could have met early in my college career.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you want to be meeting new people all the time. King's is like its own family where everyone knows everything.

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

I would suggest prospective students to choose the college that they feel most comfortable at when visiting, after all, you will be spending the majority of the next four years of your life there. When visiting colleges, make sure you find out about clubs and other activities that the campus has to offer because you will have more time than you think to get involved at your school. Once you get to school, attend all the orientation events because this is where you could meet many of your friends you will have for the next four years. Don't give in to peer pressure, being your own person is the best thing you can do. And remember to have fun!

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

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.

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

When you look at the school, be sure to go when class is in session so you can get a feel for the people there. Don't be afriad to ask questions to students/ faculty about the school. Students should definitly get involved around campus and have fun. Study hard and have fun...but not too much fun. College is a great experience and it flies by, so enjoy it while it lasts!!

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

King's is located near a somewhat dangerous neighborhood. Although the city and school are starting to clean things up and the danger level should change because of this. The only thing to do on weekends seems like partying, so if you don't party, you may be at a loss for things to do sometimes.

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

The best advice I would give is to visit the campus and sit in with some of the professors in their classes. This is the best way to tell if you feel comfortable at the school. If you feel uncomfortable your learning experience will suffer! Make sure the school has classes that interest you and fit your needs and wants. If you're interested in varsity sports or extra curricular activities and certain clubs, see if they offer them and go to a game or function. Financial aid is always a worry for students and parents. Stop by the financial aid office and see what they offer! Many have their own grants they award to incoming students. Take the time to visit and do some research on your school choices. Make sure the school is right for you!

What's unique about your campus?

The student to faculty ratio was better than many other colleges, approximately 15/1. It was great to be able to have the professors full attention instead of sharing it with one hundred other students in the same class. Many colleges hold the class in a huge lecture hall while at King's it was in an actual classroom!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I don't believe there is a kind of person that should not attend this school. King's accommodates any student no matter what the situation. Whether it be a learning disability or financial hardship, King's will help any person recieve the education they long for!

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

Plain and simple: just follow your heart. If you do what you feel is the best for you, you will have the best experience. Get involved and make your voice heard. Also, make sure every decision you make is a responsible one because the smallest mistake can change your life forever.

What's unique about your campus?

The class sizes are just right which enables the prof. to be able to give you an needed individual attention. Most prof. are easily accessible. The campus size is also just right. The buildings arent on top of eachother nor are they widely spread apart that you need a bike to get to and from builidings. It's great because when its cold or rain the walk between buildings is 3 min or less.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The parking. It is absolutely terrible. Parking passes are expensive and the lots the are reasonably priced are about 2 blocks away. The cheapest lot isnt paved so when its muddy or icy, be careful. Your other choice is meter parking, however the spots are vey limited and chances are if your mete runs out, w-b city parking enforcement is always around to give you a ticket.

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

First, as a returning adult student, I would begin by encouraging students to do what it took me ten years fo figure out, that is, to do what it is that you love doing. Once you figure out what that is, it is extremely important to find a college that has an excellent reputation in that field. For students who are more comfortable in a small community and in smaller groups, a small college would most likey be the right choice for that individual, where as students who thrive in a big city would more likely enjoy a large university. These individuals would probably feel stifled attending a smaller school. Class size is an important consideration as well as financial aid packages offered by individual colleges, extra-curricular activities and student housing. My advice to parents is to help your child research and choose the best school for their personality, needs, and intended major. Keep in mind that, in most cases, this will be their home for the next four years and therefore this is a very important decision as an unhappy student will not work to his or her fullest potential.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I think that Kings College is best known for its accommodation. Kings is usually very willing to work with students to ensure that they have the ability to attend college there; the college offers a great deal of financial aid and the people who work there are very welcoming and helpful. In addition, classes are usually small which allows professors to accommodate more easily to each individual students needs by granting them the access to get to know their students better. The staff at Kings College is always working to make the college experience better for the students.

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

Students should always go where their hearts direct them and parents should always be supportive. College is an important experience for all people and students should go where they believe is best for them. College is about finding oneself and discovering who you are, in addition to preparing one for a future career; if a student chooses a college based on anything other than where they want to go, they may not be getting all that they can out of their college experience. This is why parents need to support their children and urge them to choose the school that is best for them; if a student picks and attends the college that they wish to go to, they will succeed better than if they attend a college that someone else forces upon them. So students, pick the college the suits you best and that you could see yourself happy at, and parents help your kids through the process by supporting them and realizing that what is important is that they are going to be learning about themselves at college as well as gaining experience for a career. College is a vital experience in a person's life.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I find the most frustrating thing about my school to be the fact that a great deal of the campus buildings are somewhat old; therefore classrooms can be too small for larger classes and elevators can be slow, which can ultimately lead to one being late for class. The newer buildings have bigger classrooms and faster elevators, however when a majority of one's classes are in an older building, it becomes somewhat frustrating attempting to maneuvar around the complications that old buildings can present.
