Things @ King's: What's happening for students 

 

What a busy month we just had!  From Move-in Day on September 2nd to Homecoming on September 28th, this first month at King's has been jam packed!  We hope you have settled into your classes, met some new friends, joined some clubs and are feeling at home.

 

This past weekend marked another milestone in the construction of the new Darryl J. King Student Life Centre. We welcomed to campus many of the donors to the campaign and gave them a Sneak Peek at the progress. It truly was a special time to thank them for their support. We're planning a large Grand Opening for everyone, once the entire building is ready!
