4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed and appreciated the quality education that I am receiving at The King's College. The major, Politics Philosophy and Economics, that I chose coincides with my interests perfectly. I've had one bad experience with a professor and complications with the documentation with files in the registrar.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: School is fun for me, I enjoy it because of all the lessons it teaches me, both in school and out.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: The honor code is wonderful! We are all trying to learn to live as responsible adults, and King's provides an environment to live responsible for our own conduct within a safe and encouraging community.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There really is not a big party scene - yes, there are parties but they are nice and friendly and not huge.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I mean, you're in New York City! There are numerous options for dining, and you can always find something that you like and is affordable.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The 3rd floor cafeteria provides a place to meet and eat with friends and also meet the business people who work in the building. There are more secluded rooms for studying over meals, and food is cheap yet very good with multiple options for dining.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I had a great time with the financial aid process at King's. Everyone was extremely helpful, and when the first amount came back and it was not enough, there was honest and open communication between my family and the aid officers at King's. They came back 3 times with increased aid, and now I am able to attend because of their generosity and willingness to work with me and my financial constraints.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Being on campus is different than most colleges because you live in apartments throughout Manhattan. However, you are placed in a house of friends who all live in the same building as you, which provides for friend rides on the metro to campus or walks throughout different parts of New York City.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports aren't big at the College. Most students prefer other activities. No on-campus gyms or fields simply because the campus is two levels in an office building on Exchange Street.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The only option is only off-campus dining. NYC has AMAZING food. You can find whatever you want! Easy to get to. But usually expensive.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness at the College fits well with their mission and focus as a school.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Very few people are huge partiers at the College. Most students hang out around the city, go to coffee, dinner, or play games at apartments.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school is extremely expensive in the first place and the school could do a lot better job of offering scholarships. After some pushing, I got most of what I needed.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is no school cafeteria or dining option. There are two vending machines but that's all for food. There is a cafeteria the school shares with the whole building on the 3rd floor. Prices there are excellent and there is a wide variety of options. You could eat there every day and not get sick of it. 10% off if you're a student.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Because the College does not have on campus housing, students are housed in two buildings within a 5 mint walk from campus. Buildings are beautiful, spacious, and have 24 hour doormen. Much nicer than you would ever imagine.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very straight-forward and simple. Application was free online.

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.

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.
