The campus is beautiful and quaint, bringing images of the old 1939 movie, Goodbye, Mr. Chips. It spans up a wooded hill, westward from Stadium Drive, along the red-brick Academy Street. Most of the campus buildings and dormitories are constructed of red clay bricks. The landscaping is meticulous. 

Over the past 190 years, K-College has hosted numerous students, some briefly, who went on to become successful in their pursuits and achieve celebrity status. Out of the long list, I have selected 7 celebrities who attended that quaint campus on a wooded hill.
