King University Introduces King Connection for Alumni

June 1, 2018

BRISTOL, Tenn., June 1, 2018 – King University has introduced a new website community for alumni called the King Connection. The new site can be located at

“Alumni voiced they wanted a place to be able to search for other King alumni, from any particular area, to have communication and mentoring possibilities – a place where they can stay connected. The King Connection is a place for alumni to have that community, with various opportunities for networking,” said Dana McMurray ’12 ’16, director of Alumni Relations.

“If an alum is wondering how many other King alumni are located in the Seattle, Washington area, for example, a quick search on the site would provide information on who is in that area that has registered with King Connection,” said McMurray. “For someone to search for any particular alumnus or alumnae, he or she must be registered and have given consent for their information to be shared. It is up to the individual as to how much or how little information they allow other King alums to see.”

In addition to location searches, alumni can post and search for jobs, read the latest editions of the E-Tornado and the alumni magazine, order King transcripts, as well as start group chats with classmates or plan an upcoming class reunion.

“This is a great resource for our alumni to stay in touch outside of social media in a private, King community,” said McMurray. “Currently, we have about 400 members, with hopes many more will join the King Connection soon.”
