King’s Recognized as a “Top Conservative College”
King’s Makes "Young America’s Foundation" List
NEW YORK, March 15, 2010—The King’s College was recognized last week on the sixth annual list of “Top Conservative Colleges” compiled by the Young America’s Foundation.
The Young America’s Foundation (YAF) introduces youth to conservative principles for the purpose of advancing liberty. YAF publishes a list of “Top Conservative Colleges” to aid students in their college search. Hillsdale College, Grove City College, Patrick Henry College, and Liberty University are a few of the 14 colleges on the ‘09-’10 list.
An element unique to The King’s College, however, is its location. A few of the schools are near cities including Washington D.C. and Pittsburgh, but no other college has taken to a big city like King’s. New York City is strategic. YAF’s article notes:
“The campus located in New York City allows for the campus art gallery to be the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the performing arts center to be Broadway, the library to be the New York Public Library, and the quad to be Central Park. Students eat, shop, study and play in the heart of one of the world’s most influential cities. When it is time to intern, they go to places like Oppenheimer or CBS News.” New York City is a spectacular place to study true ideas about politics, economics, business, and culture because it is in cities like NYC that culture is formed.
Though most students love NYC, what excites them more about King’s is its vision—transforming the world for Christ and His Kingdom. “Through its commitment to the truths of Christianity and a biblical worldview, The King’s College seeks to transform society by preparing students for careers in which they help to shape and eventually to lead strategic public and private institutions, and by supporting faculty members as they directly engage culture through writing and speaking publicly on critical issues.”
At King’s, students learn to write well, speak well, and think critically and are prepared to help shape and lead key institutions: government, law, business, media, the arts, civil society, education and the church.
