King’s College-Wilkes-Barre Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


The most frusterating thing about my school is that the smoking policy is never enforced and students are forced to be around second-hand smoke, even if they don't want to be.


Financial aide process


The weather, it seems like it rains 4-5 days out of the week.


The most frustrating thing about my school would have to be the housing; I believe that there should be more of a variety, or at least more options. We just built a new indoor athletic facility, but I believe that housing would've been a better idea. The school also says you can apply to be in apartment style housing your sophomore year, but it's nearly impossible because it is based on the amount of credits you've taken.


The most frustrating thing about my school, King's College, is the lack of safety surrounding the campus. In the 2012-2013 academic year alone over fifteen robberies and muggings took place on the outskirts of campus. In order to go to the gas station, the drug store, a coffee shop, or even a friend's house off campus you must either walk with a few friends or drive there. The most frustrating part, however, is that Campus Security does not respond quickly enough to calls concerning violent behavior for me to feel safe leaving campus.


No wireless internet


The library is not open 24 hours a day or late enough. The library hours are not convenient for students who require late study hours, especially those students who are athletes, who participate in extra-curricular activities, or have part-time jobs. It is especially difficult to find a study environment or an open computer lab after the library has closed. We were able to ask the school to extend the library's hours during the last week of the semester to study for finals, but we only given an extra two hours.


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.


the area surrounding it


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.


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.
