King University News :: High School Students to Receive Royal Treatment during "King for a Day" Event

High school juniors and seniors who want to experience King College campus life are invited to receive the royal treatment on Monday, Jan. 16, 2012, at the College's King for a Day event.  The event offers students and their families the opportunity to talk with King representatives about the admissions process, financial aid, student life, degree programs, and more.

King for a Day allows students and families to experience the academic foundations of King, the support they will receive from our faculty and staff, and the welcoming nature of the KC community, said Elvin Browne, director of undergraduate recruitment and admissions. On this day, you can begin to see all that is King College. It's an invaluable opportunity to get a first-hand look at life as a King student.

The factors that both students and parents must consider when choosing a college are innumerable, said Browne. The atmosphere and personality of a campus are important elements in this search. The best way truly to know if a college is the right one is for students and parents to experience it personally.

Registration is open from 8 a.m. – 8:45 a.m., and scheduled activities begin at 9 a.m. Participants will break into separate student and parent information sessions on academics, student life, and campus safety, as well as Q A panels with current King College students. Throughout the day, participants will interact with faculty, staff, and current students. Representatives will also be present to offer guidance on the admissions and financial aid process.

Parents will have the opportunity to participate in information sessions on topics such as financial aid, and a Q A session with parents of current King students.

The day includes lunch in the King College dining hall and campus tours. Activities will conclude at approximately 1:30 p.m.

Students interested in attending King for a Day should contact the admissions office at 800.362.0014 or register online at kingforaday.king.edu.
