I love this small private school! Everyone on campus is kind and willing to help out. The professors are wonderful and want to see their students succeed. There are many activities on campus from intramural sports, yoga, movie nights, trivia night, plays and musicals, and debates. The area surrounding campus is okay, but I would not recommend walking alone at any point in the day. The campus is about two blocks from the city center which has plenty of restaurants, and the King's bookstore.

Attending King’s made me inspired to be a teacher even more. The education field, as well as the business field, is quite beneficial. I have no complaints about my professors as they make me feel welcome and included. I personally benefited from studying abroad in Africa as King’s provided immense support. Prior from me attending LCCC, King’s has been such a positive transition. I commute to save money, but I heard from fellow peers that housing is satisfying yet competitive. The student life is really involved in the community. Our town is known for good pizza, so we have neighboring food joints that really hit the spot. There are few nightclubs that are worthwhile. Parking would have to be the most annoying. The campus is quite small yet personalized with trees, a courtyard, and benches that highlights King’s scenic environment. If you’re a fan of quaint, suburban colleges that have amazing professors and small classrooms, King’s is a school worth looking into.
The school molded me into a better person, student, and professional. Perfect school for someone who wants to be directly involved with the inside and outside campus community. You know everyone and make long lasting relationships. High growth potential as an institution as well. Constantly making positive changes. Solid leadership.
