BRISTOL, Tenn., Sept. 9, 2015 – King University has once again been named among the
“Best Regional Universities” in the South on the U.S. News and World Report’s newly
released 2016 Best Colleges Rankings lists. This year’s ranking is King’s 26th consecutive
appearance in the annual publication.
“King is pleased to not only be included in the recent U.S. News Best Colleges report
but also to have risen significantly in the rankings,” states Dr. Matt Roberts, vice
president for Academic Affairs at King University. “This acknowledgement is a tribute
to King’s long-held tradition of academic excellence.”
King University has achieved record growth each year for the past 16 years, and now
supports a student body of more than 2,900 students across four campuses and 10 additional
instructional locations throughout Tennessee, Virginia, and online. King’s innovative
degree programs are designed to open the availability of an undergraduate or graduate
degree to both traditional students and adult learners.
“The King University educational experience is uniquely designed to help prepare students
to make meaningful and significant contributions to their communities through their
chosen vocation,” Roberts says.
Other recent accolades include King’s recognition for the past 12 years as a “Best
College in the Southeast” by the Princeton Review, and as a “Military Friendly School”
for the sixth year by G.I. Jobs.
