My time at King has been nothing less than amazing! From the very beginning, the enrollment and financial aid process went smoothly - without a hitch. I was so relieved. The university's reputation is what it is for good reason. Their standards of excellence far surpass other universities I have attended. The sheer plethora of knowledge that I have gained from my education at King far exceeded my expectations. Being a Communication major in my last semester, I am confident that I will graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in life and in my new career. The material that is covered is relevant to today's work environment and demands. You will not find a more professional and helpful staff or line-up of professors. They make it abundantly clear that they are there for you and your success. I have never made a better decision for myself.
I am an History major studying at King University through it's online program. I can take my classes at an increased pace, and they are only for 5 weeks long. The professors are very capable and understanding, and really practice a Christian lifestyle, which is something I find very important as a Christian student. The tuition is affordable, and I am getting significantly more back through education and experience that what I had expected. Attend King if possible, it will be one of the best decisions you make!
My experience at King has been exceptional. I have learned so much for the future. I am currently in my last semester of the COMM program which offers so many opportunities to improve your interpersonal and professional communication skills. I am blessed to have chosen King as my school to further my education. This university has taught me so much about what it takes to be an effective communicator. If you're looking for a school that has a great program that will increase your oral and written communication then it is the school for you. As I finish up my last semester I look forward to continuing my learning success. Attending King was one of the best decisions I have ever made!
