Student Organizations

Student organizations bring students together to explore, refine, and share extracurricular passions and interests.

Student organizations serve under The King’s Council. The King’s Council, comprised of the 10 House Presidents, the Student Body President, and his/her cabinet members, exists to shape the campus culture and empower student-driven community.

While the following student organizations are officially recognized by The King’s College, the views and opinions expressed by these organizations do not necessarily reflect those of the College.

King’s Debate Society

KDS exists to train students to effectively advocate truth in the marketplace of ideas. We speak, study, and debate in order to confront the ideas that threaten the world, and promote those ideas that uphold the principles of the Gospel and the value of human dignity. We prepare ourselves for service to Christ and humanity in firm understanding that God is both ultimate Truth and Authority, and that creation will never be reclaimed by the wisdom of man. KDS participates in multiple intercollegiate debate competitions during the academic year, going head-to-head with some of the best collegiate debate teams. There are no requirements to join the team. Contact debate@tkc.edu.
