3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It isn't the best, but its not the worst.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttles don't run often enough, and they only run to the Genetti's parking lot. However, the shuttles will pick students up from the closer parking lots on cold days which is really nice.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone is very accepting of each other.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I have heard that the parties are good. Campus is dead at night time most of the time.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: You can smell it on some people, but mostly not noticeably

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There aare alot of white people on campus. Very little Hispanics

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I personally do not live off-campus but my friends tell me that its hit or miss. Many houses for rent aren't exactly in the best condition.

Transportation: Transportation at King's is okay, but its not great. There are only 2 shuttles operating at one time, and that's on the weekends. Weekdays, usually there is only 1 shuttle operating. On top of this, student parking isn't exactly close to campus.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The academics at King's are some of the best in the country. But, of course, there are some exceptions. But these are few and in between. As a whole, every offered major program is staffed by intelligent and very hospitable professors.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity here on campus is rather big. Every ethnicity is present within the student body and there is no discrimination.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Computers are widely available all across campus, although it would still be ill-advised to not bring your own laptop to school. Also, don't expect school computer labs to be equipped with top-notch computers, as most labs on campus are equipped with rather outdated dell all in one computers. There is only 1 mac lab on campus and it is not open to everyone, only CS students.

College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life on King's campus is largely invisible. This is due to a horrible hazing accident which occurred a couple years back. Since then, the College has cracked down on Greek life, leaving any semblance of Greek life rather limited.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's not great, but Wilkes-barre is okay. There are a large number of shopping centers, including a Wegmans, but other than that, Wilkes-barre is pretty level. The center of the city has a theater which is frequented by celebrity's, as well as numerous other eateries and attractions - including a rock climbing attraction.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Generally, King's College is secure. However Wilkes-barre isn't exactly a violence free city. This is especially noticeable since King's College has an open campus. In the end though, health and safety is okay, just not great.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are students that party, but mostly they're the kids on sports teams.

5 College Freshman

Majors: There are a large variety of majors.

5 College Freshman

Majors: This school has an outstanding CIS and CS departments.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are plenty of computers to use on campus and they work very well.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The school doesn't have a lot to do with sports.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Most students aren't involved with drugs.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The academics here are very good

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The school shuttle is good for getting you to walmart or the mall.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's in the middle of a city, so it's classic city living.
