King University Hosts Information Session Sept. 17

King UniversityBRISTOL, Tenn., Sept. 9, 2016 – King University’s main campus in Bristol, Tenn., will be the site of an upcoming information session on the University’s traditional degree programs. The information session will take place on Saturday, Sept. 17.

“The Saturday information session is an event to learn about King University during a time that may be more convenient for prospective students and their families,” says Tom VerDow, director of undergraduate recruitment at King University. “While these events are on a Saturday, they are not a comprehensive ‘Open House’ event. This event provides a group information session with an Admissions counselor along with a campus tour.”

The information sessions with Admissions staff will help answer questions such as, “Is King the right fit for you and your family?” or “Do we have what you’re looking for?” In addition to enrollment counseling, King’s information session will also include a guided tour of the University’s main campus.

“For a complete and more in-depth visit to King University, we would welcome you to attend an Open House event on Saturday, Oct. 15 or Saturday, Nov. 12,” adds VerDow. “We are also happy to host you at King University any day during the week, which can include an information session, campus tour, class visit and even a faculty visit.”
