What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
King's has many activities that help you give back to the Wilkes Barre community. Not only are the fun activities, but they also help you meet new people and the staff at King's.

Check out the campus and the city. Do an overnight visit so you can get the true feel of the campus and its classes, they will sit you in class that would go along with the major you have picked and you get to stay in the dorms with a student who will show you what students do on their down time.
Lee Ann from Reading, PA
Get involved. I'm sure every college tells you this but here at King's the student body is so closely knitted that you have a voice and people will listen to you. It has always been said that out of the three things; social life, grades, and sleep; when you go to college that you can only pick two of them but, I know for myself and many others you can have all three. King's has many different clubs and activities to get involved in as well as trips to NYC and Washington and much more. Grades- that's easy, you can have a study group getting in social life and grades in one shot. Finally sleep, well that one is all up to you on how you manage your time. But I can tell you this, it isn't hard to manage your time where you wont get sleep. As long as you do all your work that is needed and don't wait 'til last minute you will have time for anything and everything you want to do.
Jacqueline from Riverhead, NY
Always ask the professors questions because they never mind helping you with your questions at King's College. If you need help with anything, go to the learning lab.
Brittny from Luzerne, PA
If you need a tutor then don't worry about having to pay for one, it's included in the tuition price and you don't have to worry. If you are excelling in a class, offer to be a tutor and you'll get paid!
