I honestly like Kennedy King college a lot. I am currently working on becoming an Automotive mechanic, and the classes and professors are super nice! I feel like in the two years I'll be studying, i'll graduate well prepared. there are a lot of resources at the campus to help prepare you aside from the classes and professors, such as the library, the student help center, the advisers, the financial aid office and more.

Kennedy-King College is truly a hidden gem in Englewood. It offers many great opportunities that would meet anyone’s needs. I love taking classes in the U building where the Culinary Institute is located. You’ll run into many students who are driven and love what they do, from inspiring bakers and chef, to creative graphic design students. All over campus the staff are so nice and the professors are very professional and well educated. The student body of course is a different story. There’s going to be people there who don’t take their education seriously and others who are a joy to be around. Overall Kennedy- King is a great school to begin your college years.
Kennedy KIng College is a fairly average college. This school is filled with amazing professors that actually care about the success of their students. The diversity of this school is also great. There are a plethora of students here from different ethnic backgrounds, and different walks of life. The admin at Kennedy King College could use a little work, but besides that this school is a very good with a ton of potential to be an amazing school.
