Largest Campus Day to Date

The King’s University (TKU) welcomed a record number of visitors to campus on Saturday, March 10, for Campus Day with Rend Collective. As TKU’s premier visit event for prospective undergraduate students, Campus Day offers attendees the opportunity to experience what life is like at TKU as they hear from the president, worship with the chapel band, sit in on a mock class, and interact with current students, faculty and staff. The spring 2018 edition of Campus Day was the 11th of its kind, yielding the largest turnout yet with more than 175 prospective students and guests.

“It was an honor to host so many wonderful people who are making decisions about where they want to attend school,” says Dexter Sullivan, director of admissions. “We cannot wait to welcome many new students into our campus community here at TKU!”

A main theme heard echoed throughout the event was the invitation for visitors to prayerfully consider if they are “called to The King’s.” In addition to their ministry calling, the faculty and staff encouraged attendees to ask God to speak to them about where He is calling them for the next step in their academic journey. “We are praying with them that they would clearly hear the voice of the Lord, and are believing that He is calling many of them to The King’s,” says Sullivan. According to feedback from attendees, many of them did sense God’s direction through the campus visit event. “I was considering multiple schools, but today God told me this is where He wants me,” commented one visitor.

After the day’s itinerary of sessions concluded, Campus Day visitors had the opportunity to experience TKU’s campus life at an outdoor block party. Together with current students, they enjoyed food trucks, yard games, and fire pits stocked with s’mores supplies, while waiting for the auditorium doors to open for a concert with Rend Collective and Mack Brock. A sold-out stop on The Good News Tour, the University auditorium was packed full that evening with more than 1,000 guests, including prospective graduate students who had attended the Graduate Preview event on March 1. Both Graduate Preview and Campus Day guests were given free tickets to the sold-out concert.

Ending the day gathered as a campus community, experiencing God’s presence in worship, everyone listening for His voice to bring unity and direction, is as true a TKU experience as one can get.
