3 Favorite Things about King's College:

  • King’s offers various activities so you will never be bored.  Some activities are on campus while others are beyond the city of Wilkes Barre.
  • The professors at King’s are truly here to help the students.  Their office doors are always open for students to come in for help with classwork or to stop in and say hello and steal candy
  • We are ALL family here at King’s College.  The friendships that I made here are amazing and the memories will last a life time.

Advice for an incoming student:

Do not be afraid here at King’s!!!  Everyone on campus is here to help you succeed. Do not be afraid to ask for help whether it is through your professors, Residence Life, or Financial Aid.  Also, get involved through the many different clubs and activities on campus.  Your time here at King’s will be more memorable if you meet new people and actually get involved with activities.

3 Favorite Things about King's College:

  • The friends you make here become your second family.  Once you meet a group of people that you really bond with, you become inseparable.
  • My professors are my teachers, advisors, mentors, and friends.  The advice that these knowledgeable individuals give me every day helps me beyond academics and into my real life.
  • The campus is beautiful and the squirrels are super friendly!  The Facilities department deserves a huge round of applause because our campus always looks so pretty and inviting.

Advice for an incoming student:

Find time to have fun and meet new people!  Too often new students will sit in their dorm room or commute back home and never take the time to get involved with ALL the activities campus offers.  Come into this new and exciting atmosphere with an open mind to new experiences and new types of people as well because it will help you to become a better you.
