"King's was a positive experience for me. The small campus, classes and close-knit faculty allowed me to excel in my studies in ways that would not have been possible at larger campuses. I was afforded many opportunities to go beyond just my studies at King's that allowed me to successfully complete my undergraduate degree. Further, the skills that I developed at King's have helped me to further my studies at a Master's level and a PhD level. I would recommend King's to anyone who wants a family feel as part of their university experience"
