Our Reputation

Our reputation goes beyond satisfied parents. For over 30 consecutive years, U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks King University as one of the best colleges in the nation as well as a “Best Value” in regional liberal arts colleges in the South. We’ve also been included in America’s Best Christian College and The Student Guide to America’s 100 Best College Buys. King University has recently been included in The Princeton Review as a “Best in the Southeast” college for over 15 years. King University is one of the 136 schools receiving the “Best in the Southeast” designation.

It’s not just parents who are happy with the life and instruction at King University. When compared to students at other four-year private Southern colleges, a recent study shows that our students are more than satisfied with King.
