Kalamazoo College Reviews
By far the coolest college experience of any of my friends from high school. The freeform curriculum allows its students to discover what they love and dig deeply into that while also exploring any number of other academic avenues that can fit within the four years. The bulit-in study abroad experience changes lives - it changed mine. I see the world with more understanding eyes because of my time here. Also, the professors really care about who you are as a person and what you're going through. They understand the stresses you're under and want to work with you to achieve.
Amazing university with a diverse student body and staff. K's Center for Civic Engagement teams up with local organizations to improve the greater Kalamazoo Community in various ways. Excellent selection of study abroad programs. Needs a new pool!
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.
