    The King's College - New York Reviews

    King's itself is a very good school. There are members of the student development team who have more power than they should, have favorites. Thankfully, this only effects a few students.

    Your house at King's can have a huge effect on the experience of freshmen, especially with underage drinking. I have had many friends who almost left King's because they have a stringent house advisor, especially in the House of Lewis.

    I also wish that the new Career Development director was more involved with students. If you are not aggressively willing to work towards the career you want, the Career Development Department might not be of much use.

    However, the academics are great. The campus housing itself is above average. I think the student body itself is really unique and special, and the staff and faculty care about the students and mission of the college a lot! I love the school, and would not have been satisfied anywhere else even with the problems with Student Development.

    The King's College is an excellent university! Rigorous academics, the incredible life experience that comes from your campus being New York City, professors who care deeply about their students and take the time to mentor them, and a community that fosters growth, both intellectually and spiritually. If you are looking for a Christian, classical PPE core curriculum, small (550 students) school in Manhattan, The King's is for you.
    The King's College is a very unique approach to higher education. A classical liberal arts education with a Christian worldview–situated in the heart of New York City–and dedicated to the idea of pushing college students to become adults in every sense of the word. King's doesn't believe that you have to wait until after you graduate to act and earn the respect characteristic of a grown man or woman. From the business casual dress code, to renting your own apartment, to getting plugged in to a local church community, to emphasizing jobs and internships for every semester that you attend, King's applies a holistic philosophy of enabling young adults to take their place in the culture and workplace. Expect a culture of strong Christian community–the college and its students take their commitment to mission seriously–but this school is for those who have the drive and the will to succeed and establish their own faith not to be hand-held through it by the institution.
