Kalamazoo is a small liberal arts college. The capacity of each class can range from a handful of students to approximately 30 students. The size of the class allows students to build a relationship with professors and receive the help that they need.
Kalamazoo also has an amazing study abroad program which allows students to travel and grow as individuals.
Aside from the classes the Kalamazoo community is diverse, you'll meet amazing people from across the country and the world. Kalamazoo is great with providing scholarships and grants for students of color making this private institution affordable.
There are also plenty of opportunities to get involved in social justice work with the college and the surrounding community.

Overall, I think that Kalamazoo college is actually very unique. There are a variety of clubs and organizations on campus to choose from. It allows for everyone to be a part of something. Academically, I enjoy being on trimesters and having to take three courses each semester. I also enjoy the fact that the campus is small and that allows me to create a relationship with my professors and makes it easy to reach out and ask for their help. In the last two years the percent of minorities that attend K College have actually increased, and that is something that I hope continues to happen over the coming years.
Kalamazoo College is a very inviting college, that welcomes students from all diversities. We have a very welcoming community and going to college here is nice. The courses on the other hand are very limited and sometimes you can't get into the specific class that you wanted due to limited seats. Although, the professors at Kalamazoo College are very helpful and are more than eager to help you with what you need help with. The campus is very pretty and everything is remotely close since it is a small knitted campus. It is a home to many people and I have been blessed to call it my home as well.
