King's College - Pennsylvania Reviews
I was a graduate student at King's from 2009 to 2015. The people in the Education Department are the BEST! They treated me very kindly when I went back to school to pursue teaching certification. When I couldn't find a teaching job right away, they welcomed me back to pursue my Masters degree in Education. They found me the financial aid I needed, and they even provided me with housing on-campus. "King's on the Square" was amazing!
Beautiful campus, great professors, and relationships with colleagues that will last a lifetime! Highly recommend the psychology program.
Visited multiple times since my sophomore year of high school and felt confident in my decision to go here. The positive is that the education is top notch ( and that is what we go to college for) and the professors are thorough and offer a good understanding of what you are learning. They give you feedback and are invested in your success. The negatives I have found are that the school thrives off it's D3 sports teams and everything revolves around them, which makes up a very large part of the student body. The food is horrible, nothing like at the open houses, and the neighborhoods surrounding the campus are sketchy and I hear gunshots from my dorm at least once a month. The atmosphere, because it's such a small campus, is the same as being in high school with the same sports jock mentality. So if you are looking for a quality education, King's is great, if you are looking for the whole package of what college life should be, you won't find it here.
