Danielle Irwin, B.A. History and Kinesiology '21
I didn’t exactly choose King’s, King’s chose me! I was getting ready to attend a different school when the soccer coach at the time asked me to play for King’s. I’m a year ahead in school so I was on his list for the next year. When he contacted my coach and found out I already graduated, he immediately came out to watch me play and offered me a spot! I didn’t really know much about King’s initially, but after looking into it I knew it was my ideal environment: small classes, great courses, and best of all, I got to play soccer! Now, I’m captain of the women’s soccer team!
"Everyone is super welcoming and friendly here, you just have to take the first step and be yourself!"
It can be difficult to get to know people, but I really encourage new students to try to engage in as many extra-curricular activities as possible; King’s has so many to offer with more being added every single day. I didn’t know anyone coming into King’s, but my friend group welcomed me with open arms—all I had to do was ask to hang out with them! Everyone is super welcoming and friendly here, you just have to take the first step and be yourself!
