Viewing stories about history
The King’s College campus in Belmar, New Jersey started life in 1914 as a 90-acre research and experimentation site for long-distance radio transmission under the pioneering supervision of Guglielmo Marconi, inventor of the wireless.
As students return to campus later this month, or move in for the first time, they will find opportunities to pursue their extracurricular interests through a wide variety of student organizations. One of the earliest student-led organizations at The King’s College was its literary society, founded in the College’s first academic year.
Congratulations to the Radandts on the publication of their story. It’s just possible it may lend encouragement in our own uncertain days.
What does a college do with itself during the summer?
The alma mater will be sung at Commencement for the first time since the college reopened in 1999 (and possibly longer). “We are thrilled to reintroduce the alma mater as an important tradition at The King’s College.”
Every year in the spring, King’s suspends classes for three days of competitions crowning a campus-wide, yearlong reflection on a chosen theme and an accompanying work of classic literature. We call this unusual tradition Interregnum.
In 1942, the first graduating class of The King’s College looked around and realized they had no traditions.
The men’s basketball team at King’s took the College’s athletic program to its zenith, in a way, when they won the NCCAA Division 1 championship in 1985. But there’s another way in which the athletic program at King’s was more significant still.
The King’s College is pleased to announce the launch of its history initiative, exploring the college’s history and relationship to American evangelicalism since 1938.
