Q&A with the President of The House of Ronald Reagan
The House of Ronald Reagan is one of ten houses at The King’s College. The House of Reagan “equips and encourages members to be God fearing men of integrity who take calculated risks while persevering in pursuit of a significant life.”
The mission is inspired by Ronald Reagan, 40th President of the United States and now a hero of American Conservatism. During his time as president, Reagan displayed remarkable moral clarity in his public assessment of the Soviet Union as an “evil empire,” and also audacity in his implementation of supply-side economic policies.

As part of our mission to better serve all those connected with The King's College, we have begun using the popular photo sharing platform Instagram to give those not currently at King's a better idea of what life at King's is like.
So, instead of taking as many pictures as we can, we have encouraged students to take their own photos and submit them to the Instagram tag #tkcnyc. The result is a currently a small album of candid photos showing students enjoying House dinners, House date nights, studying, exploring the new campus, and more.
Do you use instagram? Is there any type of photos you want to see more of? Reply to this email and let Advancement know. And be sure to follow us on Instagram @thekingscollege.

Burk Ohbayashi Selected as New Debate Coach
The King’s College is pleased to announce that Burk Ohbayashi (King’s ’12) will be joining the King’s staff as Interim Coach for The King’s Debate Society. Ohbayashi will work as a part-time coach, leading the Society in efforts to improve their skill at British Parliamentary debate—and spearheading the search for a full-time coach.
Burk has long been a faithful member of The King’s Debate Society. In 2008, he was one of the first team members to place in the top ten speakers at a regional tournament. Over the next three years, he became one of the best debaters in the Northeast, regularly breaking into quarterfinal, semifinal, and final rounds—most recently placing 16th overall, with his partner Josiah Peterson (King's '12), in the United States World Format Debating Championships. He has continually invested in the Society, serving as Novice Trainer in the 2011-12 season and imparting the vision of KDS to new debaters. He is the last remaining member of the founding cohort of the Society.
