Kalamazoo College Reviews
The academics, housing, teachers, students, and diversity is beyond amazing at this school. The food in the cafeteria is okay, but that's what food on West Main and Roadhouse $3 Tender Tuesdays are for! The party scene has also gotten a lot better in the past few years due to more diversity and intercultural individuals coming to campus. People really look out for each other out here, everyone is super nice, but because we really are a community, everyone knows everyone and that can cause drama at times. Otherwise, AMAZING school.
Kalamazoo College brags about their academics and success of nearly all of their alumni. In fact, on my college tour I was told by the student guide that Kalamazoo College has the best pre-medical program in the state. While the education is at higher caliber than most other universities, they do not provide ample class options. Furthermore, I intend to pursue a career in physical therapy/sports medicine and all Kalamazoo College health classes focus on genetics, microbiology, and cells. Overall, it is a great education but not necessarily the material I was looking for. Other than academics, the atmosphere is quite nice: beautiful campus, easy transportation, and sufficient resources for student affiliations or other extracurricular activities. The athletics and social events are relatively, well, lame.
Professors are fantastic. They really care. The downside is that the college has been admitting more students without raising the class sizes. This makes registration and trying to get into a class a nightmare. Time slots are difficult. The food options are disgusting, especially for vegetarians and vegans. The dorms are not cleaned well and the area coordinators and Res Life directors are rude/unorganized. The amount of mold and water/heating issues in Severn hall is disgusting. For what you pay for room and board, it is disappointing. Lastly, emails from higher-ups can be condescending and rude. It often feels like they can't be bothered by students. The K-plan is a joke. Trying to get a degree and study abroad with their layout and how picky they are about credits is difficult, and very few are willing to help you work something out. Major flaws but an okay education.
