If you think back to your first campus visit tour, the student leading it very well could have been a King President’s Society (KPS) member! KPS is a group of students nominated by faculty who focus on social relations with the community and helping within admissions. Their role is to embody King’s values and help to introduce those values and the community to prospective students looking to enroll here at King.
Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion is an annual music festival celebrating Bristol’s country music heritage stemming from the 1927 Bristol Sessions, the origin of country music.

The Spring Showcase, hosted by the DMAD (Digital Media Art and Design) program, is an annual juried exhibition that allows students to try out new techniques or subject matter outside the constraints of the assignments for classes. The lack of restrictions allows students to explore new mediums or combine them to create a unique approach. The showcase is competitive in that there is a limit to how many pieces of work can be included in the show. The limit is set at 20 pieces, meaning that not all the work submitted can be exhibited. This is the second year that the showcase has been online due to Covid-19. Before the pandemic, the showcase exhibition took place in person where students printed their work, framed them, and set them up for viewing in the Widener TV Lounge in Maclellan Hall.
Remember receiving a welcome packet after getting accepted to King University? Recently, students in the Multipage Design class, within the Digital Media Art & Design (DMAD) program, got the opportunity to work with the Advancement Office to design digital welcome packets for newly accepted students. This project is an important opportunity to work with an actual client and have their designs used, especially in school.
