4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The school is very safe. If you use common sense, the city is also pretty safe. There are almost always people nearby.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I love the focus of the school. All of the core classes are relevant and the majors are very encompassing. Classes are engaging and scheduling is not difficult. There is a lot of reading for homework and teachers have high expectations of students.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: We really need a meal plan, which may be possible if the housing is more centralized. Eating out is expensive and shopping for and preparing your own food is very time consuming and is difficult.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: People come from all kinds of financial backgrounds. The majority of the school is white, though there are a decent amount of other races. Students are mostly American, but in comparison with the school's size, there are many students from other countries. I hear that the school is largely republican, but have not seen much evidence of it. People are generally open to discussion or debate. People often come from Catholic or Christian backgrounds, but not exclusively. Students are dominantly straight, but the school is actually pretty diverse when it comes to sexual orientation.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The Honor Code is taken pretty seriously at this school. It can be very challenging for some students who disagree with it. It is pretty basic, and only really asks you to obey the law. For many, it is very easy to follow. It is also very easy to break, if you choose to do so, as long as you are discreet. The school is strict, but they really want to work with people who break it. Alcohol is strictly not allowed for underage students, but isn't officially monitored. I have had no problems with the honor code.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our athletics department is very new, and is improving rapidly. We don't have our own facilities though, and athletics is not a main focus of the school. There is potential for the future.

College Freshman

Party Scene: King's has an honor code that requires underage students not to drink. On the other hand, drinking and partying (of course) still goes on, just more discreetly. It all depends on who you hang out with. You could probably go all four years without knowing it exists, and have a great social life, or you could be very involved and still have a great social life. The school is strict on this issue, but is willing to work with students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are 5 different on campus housing options. Two are located in midtown, and are about 15-20 minutes away from the school via subway. They are basic, but it's the location that makes the. Right in the heart of the city, things are open 24/7 and within walking distance. There other buildings are in the Financial district, each within short walking distance of the school. They are infinitely nicer than the midtown housing and are very high end. There is very little going on in this area, and things close early. The fifth housing option is in Brooklyn, one stop away from school. The apartments are small, but nice. It is less crowded but has options for going out.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The city is our campus because we don't have an official one. The opportunities are endless. There are probably fewer school events than other schools, but there are a lot of house events. Our library is small and is mostly full of books pertaining to classes, but our school has access to NYU's (and one or two other schools) libraries, not to mention the public one.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have a greek life at The King's College.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most people dress very well (teachers included). Personalities and interests are pretty diverse and are usually in accordance with majors. People are generally less interested in sports then other places. Surprisingly, people are much less preppy than I anticipated.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school is very expensive, and I wish they would provide more financial aid. Comparatively, I received excellent aid, although I still took out loans. On the other hand, I wouldn't trade anything for this experience, so I think the school is worth the high costs.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Living in the city is incredible, though it can be challenging. There are always things going on, and getting around is very easy thanks to the subway system. It takes a little while to figure it all out, but the more time passes, the easier it gets. Grocery shopping is a pain, but is much cheaper than eating out. A lot of things require money, but there are also a lot of cheap/free opportunities if you are willing to search.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Since we don't have a campus, it really depends on where you live. In midtown there are a lot of options for eating out, though they can be pretty expensive. In the Financial District, there are few late night options.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: New York is a great environment but it can also be challenging. You will be stretched and molded at times, but it can be done. The most challenging thing is saying "NO" because there's always distractions in the city that never sleeps. Therefore you must be driven, and creative when it comes to having a good time on an average college students meager budget.

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.

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 Food: 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 Area: 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.
