King University will host an Open House on Monday, April 8 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30
p.m. at the University’s Knoxville campus located at The Village at Hardin Valley
campus at 10950 Spring Bluff Way, Knoxville, Tenn.
King offers programs specifically designed with the adult learner in mind through
the University’s Graduate and Professional Studies Online Programs (GPS), as well
as numerous courses for students who wish to transition from an associate degree to
a bachelor’s degree.
This Open House will provide the opportunity to meet one-on-one with faculty, financial
aid counselors, admissions representatives, career center counselors, and tour King’s
“Our GPS program is tailored to reduce the challenges facing the adult learner,” stated
Micah Crews, associate vice president of enrollment management. “Time and access
is often a barrier for students to finish their degrees. By offering classes in convenient
locations, one night per week, the working adult may obtain their degree in as little
as 16 months and open the door for professional advancement.”
GPS degree offerings for King’s Hardin Valley campus include bachelor’s degrees in
Business Administration, Information Technology, Communication, Psychology, Allied
Health, Criminal Justice, and Nursing, as well as a master’s degree in Business.
“We are pleased to be able to offer degree programs in more than a dozen locations,”
said Mona Salyer, director of recruitment for GPS. “Whether it is a personal goal
or a step toward furthering their career, King is making it easier for working adults
throughout the region in their quest to obtain their degree.”
For the 23rd consecutive year, U.S. News World Report has recognized King among the best colleges in the nation as a Best Regional University. The Princeton Review named King one of the Best Colleges in the Southeast for a ninth consecutive year.
King also offers opportunities for those who have or are currently serving in the
United States Military. G.I. Jobs, the premier publication for transitioning military
personnel, has designated King University as a Military Friendly School for the fourth consecutive year. King has a VA representative on campus that can
assist in making the college dream a reality. King accepts qualifying credits from
the military, “old” credits, as well as credits from nationally and/or regionally
accredited schools, and previously accredited closed colleges.
“Our degree programs are intended to build knowledge and practice in the field, foster
professional integrity, and promote personal growth,” stated Crews. “Ultimately,
the outcomes of this program will improve education for students, their families,
and communities throughout our region.
Attendees will also have an opportunity to view the King Photography exhibition on
display as part of Knoxville’s Dogwood Arts Festival.
The exhibition will feature senior English major Mary Mills, junior Photography and
Youth Ministry major Mickensie Neely, and junior Photography major Trevor Wentt.
Also exhibiting his work will be King alumnus Michael Thornton. Thornton received
his Bachelor of Arts in Technical and Professional Communication from King in 2011.
He currently works for King as an area coordinator of residence life.
“The artwork will showcase a selection of photographs that show our community projects
like Bristol Motor Speedway and Bristol Rhythm Roots Reunion,” said Assistant Professor
of Photography Tammy Mercure.
