King’s has allowed me to reconnect to education in a loving, surreal way that no other place can. When I think of King’s I picture diversity, accommodating, and willingness to connection with all races and ages. You can walk throughout the campus and feel that you are at home as the teachers, staff, and students embrace your goals and aspirations. No matter what your background or age is everyone makes you feel welcome and a part of the King’s family.
I have been out of the school system over 30 years. When I was younger (child) our neighbourhood was a close net of families and friends that watched out for everyone. If something wrong happened in the neighbourhood, we as a community would get together to help that family or person. If there was a celebration the entire neighbourhood celebrated as a whole. Like every community you have the leaders at Kings we have Father Michael Béchard, Dr. David Sylvester, Joe Henry, and many more who go out of their way to helps. I must not forget other individuals at King’s such as Maureen, Jane, and Lisa at Student Accommodations and the library staff. There are so many benefits and rewards to attending King’s but the only way to really experience them is to attend King’s.
