I have been attending Kilgore College for 3 years now. It's a very dedicated school. KC has lots of tradition that makes everyone feel at home. Home of the lovely rangerettes.
Tips for prospective students
Figure out what your degree plan is! It's alot easier than changing every semester and it taking forever to finish school. Once you graduate with something you can always go back!
Academic Rigor
If you want to go to college somewhere that will help Kilgore is the place. It's a school with average students but tough classes that make you smarter than you have ever been!
Dorm Life
I personally have not lived in KC dorms. I have never heard anything bad about them!
Food and Dining
Small town with lots of nice, good homecooked meals, but if your looking for alot of nice restaurants Longview it only 15 min away with everything you can think of.
What to do for fun
Kilgore it's self is always having concerts, places to voulnteer, movies, and Longview is real close with clubs, bars etc.
Bang for the buck
For the price, KC is BANGING!

Local concerts, food on campus, and always big football games!
Great for these types of students
Great for students who don't think college is for them, and that make think they are not smart enough. At KC everyone is welcome!

For any students that are not ready to jump into a 4-year university but want to get some of that college experience, Kilgore College is the place to start. The teachers are willing to work with students outside of class to help them through the semester, and students have access to free tutoring, job opportunities, and workout facilities. The college is definitely full of students from different cultures and will help prepare students for a 4-year university in no time!
Tips for prospective students
For all students looking at Kilgore College to jump-start their college life, or even for a career, then dont hesitate! The tutition is inexpensive, the career/degree opportunites are innumerable, and the facilities are easily located. Thereare also many clubs, organizations, and groups that welcome all new-comers to join!
Academic Rigor
The academic rigor at Kilgore is like any other college/university; students are required to do their work independently. The work is easy when studying and practice is applied, and the teachers are always willing to work with their students to help them along the way. If low-cost and good education is an interest, Kilgore College is the way to go.
Dorm Life
The dorm life is average. While it may be inexpensive, it comes with exactly what students pay for. There is a laundrymat, privacy for every room, and security on all dormitories. The dormitories have rules and regulations (including a curfew), that when followed, no consequences come about.
Food and Dining
A center court cafe, cafeteria, and not to mention the different churches on campus that offer free food different days of the week, are all some of the choices Kilgore College has to offer when it comes to food. The taste is delicious, the cleaniness is very acceptable, and the interaction with other students makes the meal just a little warmer.
What to do for fun
Downtown Kilgore is full of shopping and eaterys, as well as unique boutiques and book stores. Kilgore is mostly a quiet city, with parks for families, restaraunts, a four star cinema, and a theatre that puts on different shows all through the year. The college life is a little less quiet, though. From sports activites, clubs, churches, and just your average college night life, there is more than meets the eye when it comes to Kilgore College.
Bang for the buck
As mentioned before, Kilgore College is very inexpensive. On average, students pay about five-thousand dollars total for both semesters if they choose to live in the dorms and about twenty-five hundred dollars to only attend the school. Everything about Kilgore is very inexpensive.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
There is a group at Kilgore called RealTalk. the group is Christian-based with student leaders, and student members. It is a unique organization that allows students (Christian faith or not) to speak their mind on individual topics. The group is a good way to meet other students, hear what different views students have about different topics, and to enjoy concerts, fun, and other great activities.
Great for these types of students
Students that are looking for a low-cost school as well as environment, quiet neighborhood to study in, available teachers and staff, and different cultures of students, Kilgore is the place to be.
Clubs and Activities
From RealTalk, Book Club, and Key club, to Basketball, Swimming, and Cheerleading, Kilgore has it all. The World-Famous Rangerettes are stunning to watch, as well as the sports and cheerleaders. Looking for a place to interact with other students and it not interfere with studies? Kilgore can help with that.
Greek Life
While there is not much Greek Culture here at Kilgore, the Greek Studies are limitless. Theatre, history, and theology are all great classes that teach about Greek philosophy and help to experience the Grecian life, without ever leaving the campus!
Campus Safety
KCPD, Kilgore College Police Department, provides safety to all students. They are on the clock twnty-four hours a day, and on the look out for any trouble that may arise. No crime is tolerated here, and the tickets handed out for disobeying any law are not the cheapest.
