What do the students say about their college?

My experience in KNC has been rather interesting. Of course there have been ups and downs but overall it has been pretty great. I love  most of my teachers and I adore the campus; it is very nature centric and if you ignore the lack of space in classrooms I think it is pretty easy to romanticise. Also the new caterers are great, loving the canteen food currently.
