Kalamazoo College Reviews
Review Kalamazoo College
Campus housing is pretty good. Depending on the dorm, many have their own unique perks. Trowbridge has most of the freshmen and provide a great social atmosphere, Hoben, another freshmen-only dorm, is the closest to Hicks (which is really the center of campus and so i's close to the cafe and the gym (relatively) and most of the quad-based activities), Harmen, which is both freshmen and upper class have quad-like dorms, which provide community atmosphere and is also in the center of campus, Crissey, an upperclassmen dorm also has a great community atmosphere, but is at the bottom of campus (so great if you want to escape the K bubble) it also has suite-like dorms where many friends live together, and Severn, another upperclassmen suite-like dorm father away from campus, tends to be the quieter of the two dorms, so great for people who enjoy silence. There is a lottery to apply for the suite like dorms for upcoming sophomores and upperclassmen may the odds be ever in your favor.
If you're going here, you are paying for the brand name of K to pay off for grad school. Most people go here to play a sport/got money/close to home. Dorms are below average, athletically nobody attends the events. No parties on fridays, but there are on saturdays and pretty much the whole school goes. Overwhelmingly liberal, they don't call it "liberal" arts for nothing at least here. Western Michigan nearby is nice.
I wish there was an it's good choice. The professors I've had have mostly been good to great, but some of the visiting and newer profs don't understand K's scheduling or work load. Most people have had good relationships with profs, and enjoy their classes. By sophomore year, when we have to declare majors, most people know what they want to do, and you start seeing them more regularly in your classes. Classes are small, so profs notice when you are missing, and they do try to reach out to you if you miss too many. But it's super easy to talk to professors, and form close relationships, and get invited to TA or do research. Man classes, in the humanities at least, are discussion based, weaved in with some lectures and movies. Service learning is a big thing here, and you may have to do some volunteer service for classes. There are a lot of cool classes, but they fill up fast, because of the small cap size.
