4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Housing can be a bit difficult to find. Students do not have a reputation for being the best tenants, and landlords have no trouble filling their rooms. Low rent = shabby housing. If you have a bit more to spend, though, you will have no trouble finding a wonderful apartment at a great location. All that is needed is a little effort looking.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: It is incredibly easy to get financial aid. Almost all students get some sort of aid, and the process is very easy.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Healthy food at a great price. The cafeteria is subsidized and does not have to make much of a profit to operate, which gives the students a great deal on healthy food.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: As a Christian college there is definitely a trend towards the stereotypical white christian here. The campus is largely very accepting of differences though. Intolerance is difficult to maintain in a city as diverse as NYC

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The Financial District slows down at night, but, with the whole city available to you, your options are hardly limited by neighborhood. There are plenty of options available to you in any price range. Free comedy shows almost every day throughout the city, plenty of beautiful architecture and cultural hot spots. You can find literally anything you want an almost any day.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The options are never ending and reachable at almost any hour. You can go out for any kind of food, and if you feel like staying in your delivery options are unlimited.

3 College Freshman

Weather: NYC doesn't get a lot of sun during the school year. The start of the Fall semester is good, and near the end of the Spring semester you will get some good weather, but other than that you will be constantly bundled up against the rain and snow.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Expensive in garages, impossible to find on the streets. You really should not bring a car if at all possible.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: You're living in a city with the best public transportation system in the US. It doesn't compare to Western Europe, but if you've lived anywhere else in the states, prepare for the easiest travel of your life.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone wants you to succeed and wants to help you. The house system immediately gives you a team of friends who want, and will actively work, to get you the best results in any endeavor. The professors will personally help you and recommend you to their colleagues in the city who need interns and employees. Projects abound in any field you choose.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are in no way a strong point at Kings. Facilities are all rented, or public spaces are used, and the few teams are not well supported. Most students who want to use a gym for personal fitness either get a membership or use the gym in their building.

5 College Freshman

Computers: The library almost always has an open computer. Students can print from anywhere (even at home!) to the library printers. The media lab ALWAYS has open computers and an incredible wealth of creative software available to students.

The midtown student housing does have trouble with internet connectivity from time to time, but the IT department gets it fixed quickly when you bring it to their attention.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Very few people drink on campus. The honor code makes a lot of people who otherwise would drink on campus afraid that those who do not will report them.

Aside from alcohol other drug use is fairly sparse, but diverse. I've heard of a lot of different things, but never of anyone having anything close to a "drug problem". One of the facts of life living in NYC is that you can get your hands on anything you want if you look hard enough. Students are in general very responsible with this.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Midtown Housing - You'll always have something to do at any hour. Your friends that visit will get the typical NYC experience when they step out of your building. Midtown is crazy busy, and you'll be living just a few block from Times Square. The apartments are a little small, mostly one or two bedroom with a living room and a kitchen. Both buildings have a gym.

FiDi Housing - Definitely the nicest housing. These buildings have almost everything you could possible want. Granite counter tops, nice floors, free breakfast in the lounge every morning, a gym for residents. They even have a basketball court on the roof. The neighborhood calms down fast as people leave work, so you won't have quite the same nightlife experience as those students who live in midtown.

Brooklyn Housing - Very quiet (and pretty) neighborhood just a block from the East River and the Brooklyn Promenade. The rooms are all very small studios with bunk beds. The building is the smallest of all student housing facilities, and almost every room is rented out by the school.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: In New York you can find a variety of options for food. From dollar pizza to gourmet cuisine there's something for every palate. You can spend as much as you want or little as you want depending on where you go much to do and there's never a shortage of options even late at night. Grocery shopping can be kind of a hassle because you have to lug everything back on the subway but if you do your research right you can find well priced groceries.

Athletics: The women's soccer team played down a player the entire season this year due to lack of interest. Men's sports seem to have a little more enthusiasm behind them but athletics at Kings are generally a joke.

Guys & Girls: At Kings we have a dress code- business casual is required for class every day. People usually look incredibly put together especially the men. Many students are academically driven and place a high value on family and church. Relationships are usually long term within the school and frequently lead to marriage.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: In New York you will never lack for variety in housing but prices are usually high. However many find it worth it to move off campus as the on-campus housing cost is even steeper.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Seeing as we don't have a campus we neither have campus police nor a student health center. As with a lot of other aspects of student life at King's were left to fend for ourselves. However a heavy police presence around the campus and around the dorm rooms are very reassuring.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: If you want more scholarship money all you have to do is tell them that you are not interested in coming to the school without more financial assistance via scholarships and they will usually be able to find the money for you. Many people I know have $15,000 a year scholarships guaranteed for all four years.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Most of the students here are white conservative Christians. There are a handful of ethnically diverse students many of whom are internationally-based. You might find a few students who are more liberal but voicing that opinion can be kind of difficult as the majority is rather right wing. A lot of people are excepting of people who are minorities however of course you will find those who are intolerant.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is relatively good, it rains occasionally but it's not too bad. The worst weather aspect is the grid pattern of the street create a sort of windtunnels which amplify windchill factors by a tenfold.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Most of the kids a King's are very straight arrow meaning they don't participate in under age drinking or other illicit activities. Occasionally upperclassman will throw parties were alcohol will be served and the attending underclassmen will have access but other than that then that under age drinking is not very prevalent. A huge number of students smoke cigarettes and a smaller portion smoke weed but it's not a very noticeable culture here.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: With Kings being located on Manhattan in New York City the possibilities are endless. You could spend the day at the Metropolitan Museum, the Guggenheim, walk through Central Park or see a Broadway show not to mention hundreds of restaurants all over the city and in the five boroughs.

Majors: I personally haven't had an internship through King's. Many people have found internships and a lot of students have landed Real World jobs because of them.
