Things at King's: Prepping for exams 


We're in the final stretch of first semester! Best of luck as you prep for exams and finish your final papers for the year. King's offers many workshops, services and opportunities to improve your exam writing and essay writing skills. We hope you find our resources in this week's student newsletter helpful.


Friday night was the annual King's Ball at the London Marconi Club! With The Great Gatsby feel of glamour and sophistication, everyone was looking dapper in their 1920's inspired apparel. Thank you to KUCSC for organizing such a wonderful event! Check out King's photo album on Facebook.
