When the lectures and assignments are online, the management could be better in some sense because sometimes when i would do my assignments online, for some reason like it would sometimes glitch or wouldn't send so inside of sending it through my school email, i would have to send it through my other regular email from yahoo. When you do assignments, if either you're in class or online, the internet can be garbage in certain standpoints. The benefit I can stay about it is that it's easier to get to your assignments on it instead of having to run to class to get the assignment. You can also email your teachers through it as well through outlook. With moodle, it's a lot of technical difficulties because it's even times you turn in assignments, some teachers will say they don't get the assignments and that can be confusing and then frustrating because you can actually already did the assignment, send it, and they'll say either didn't get it or it can be a error within the site.

I feel that kings college is a really good school for people that wants to be local but yet somewhere that's not too big. With kings being a small school, you can get to your classes quicker and resource buildings when needed quicker as well. Even though the Cafeteria doesn't but sometimes has good food, the Cafeteria/ food court is right on campus next to the girls dorm and boys dorm. one thing that I like about kings is the Kings flex on the ID card. For example, if you don't like the cafeteria food, you can work for outside restaurants including Vesuvius, Carnertins , Chic-fil-a, and pretty much majority of the food places in the downtown Wilkes-Barre area. Also, being able to use it in Barnes & Nobles to purchase books& apparel is cool. Some of the things that I feel and should improve with kings college is visiting hours making them longer, better food choices at the cafeteria, more interesting campus events, bigger dorms/rooms, adding fraternities on campus, & reasonable prof.
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!
