2 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Nothing wrong with it, it is a small campus not much to do

4 College Junior

Diversity: our school prides itself on diversity. we have a very diverse campus and though our school is founded on a specific Christianity, they are open and accepting to all genera of Christianity be in nondenominational, Methodist, or Evangelist.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: we are near Grand Rapids and there are constantly activities going on there such as Blues on the Mall, Art Fest, Laugh Fest, etc. There are also a lot of places to shop that are cheap and affordable to college students

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: there is a lot of apartment choices near the college, there are also a variety of places to shop and eat in the area as well as a lot of entertainment including parks and movie theater.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: It's very positive to be in my major, I feel as though there is a small enough group of us that we can be close-knit and help each other along. Also, the workload isn't unbearable and the professors are great.

5 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking fee is minimal (much less than expected) and I have yet to not find a spot and I never walk more than 100 yards or so.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Because I need to take the highway to get to Kuyper it can sometimes be difficult to get there in a reasonable amount of time in the winter, both because the road conditions can be poor and because of traffic through Grand Rapids.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is hardly any public transportation available to Kuyper students, but it is not necessary because of the small size of the school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Each of the dorm buildings has a community area that students can hang out, cook or study in. The pool table is a popular accommodation. Each dorm building also has its own lab with a few computers and printer, and all you need to use the laundry room is your own soap. The community atmosphere is casual, friendly and fun.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The Film and Digital Media major (a co-operative program with nearby Cornerstone University) has begun to open my eyes to the many ways and methods by which the media (print, radio, movies, news, TV etc.) often subtly but powerfully influence a person’s life, as they interact with and are exposed to them. A student in the program learns and practices how to use them to create and share messages in powerful visual ways; has opportunity to conduct their own research on select media and influence; and more.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I had a lot of stress and many incomplete, undone or late assignments due to trying to do everything perfect. I found it hard to understand that other students got their work done and still had time to enjoy things. Going to professors to talk helped me to better understand their expectations, and the writing center helped me greatly with papers. The on-campus counseling for students also helped me through. Finally, several wise and seasoned students (upperclassmen and RA’s especially) provided valuable insight, encouragement, and some quality mentorship.
In summary, the work is doable; if a student struggles, help is there, if they go to the right places.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Kuyper accommodates both hard work and needed rest very well. Former Kuyper students say they come back to the Zondervan Library because of its’ high quality staff; wonderful librarians are ready to “serve you.” The writing center and many electronic and hardcopy resources also aid in and enrich research and writing. Outside of the library, Kuyper’s wooded surroundings, chapel and various in/outdoor sitting areas help students re-zone and ease stress.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Grand Rapids and its' surrounding areas is full of all kinds of opportunities. If you're looking for entertainment, there's plenty to do such as movies & restaurants, festivals, the zoo etc. Grocery stores, supermarkets and ethnic shopping centers are plentiful. There are also plenty of places to look if you need a job (many of which post positions on the internet), and many ministries if you're interested in volunteering. Grand Rapids is a cool place to be!

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is very little (if any) drug or alcohol activity on campus at Kuyper, aside from smoking, which is not much and kept out of main campus areas. To my knowledge, there is no drug or alcohol usage.
