4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the smaller classes I feel it gives the teacher a stronger ability to help students understand assignments

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking on campus has improved. They have just developed another parking lot due to the renovations to the school.

2 College Junior

Transportation: Unfortunately, in the area where the school is located there isn't any other options besides the public transportation that runs every hour. Most kids live close to campus and can walk or ride their bikes if they do not have a reliable vehicle. Others do not have very many options which can cause a problem if your vehicle happens to break down and no one can drive you to school for classes.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Calumet College bases their reputation on diversity. There are people of different ethnicity, religions and age on campus. For a Catholic college, they are very open and do not judge the students for their uniqueness and allow them to speak up on the issue they feel are important to the welfare of campus life and the surrounding community.

4 College Senior

Majors: There are a wide range of programs to choose from. Some are accelerated and some are regular. They truly want everyone to graduate. I am in now a accelerated program for pre-law/paralegal. I have great teachers who now what they are talking about.

4 College Senior

Technology: There are plenty of computers to use and internet WiFi service.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are a few security but there is one that is there everyday and he is like superman. I do feel safe because this one guard is every where at once. I have not heard about any crime or theft.

1 College Senior

Campus Food: There is no cafeteria full of selections and restaurants, instead there is a small stand with very few selections.

4 College Senior

Parking: There is plenty of parking. There is no spot that is 'far' away.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: While attending the school, I was never made aware about the use of drugs or alcohol at nor around the school. The school had on campus security that walked around the school to make sure that the school was safe for students

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different restaurants located around the school that were in close driving distance

3 College Senior

Academics: I was apart of the first cohort in my major so there were kinks that needed to be worked out.

4 College Senior

Academics: The professors take their job seriously and take time to make sure that you understand what is being presented to you

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are the usual commercial restaurants. The campus is surrounded by many enthic restaurants and take outs that include Mexican, Italian and Chinese. I'm sure I'm forgetting some.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: CCSJ is a small privat college. It is an older building with bright well incorporated additons. There's art on every floor. The facilities a very well kept. There a many organizations and clubs that keep students involved on and off campus. You're bound to find something that appeals to you.

Campus Quality: My school offer an excelrated bachelors degree for working adults. This program is allowing me to work and go to go to school and to finish my degree within l year.

4 College Junior

Academics: I have class one day a week for 3 hours long. For me this is the best schedule. The work load is a bit tough, but this is what Major I am going for and I am learning a lot. The professor are the best because what they teach is what they are doing everyday.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Important details seemed to get lost in translation. I actually had to register a week after school already started becuase of miscommunications with the financial aid department. The only way scholarships really help you out is if it is covered by athletics. In fact, my first year was suppose to be paid for between my FASFA, athletic scholarship and numerous academic scholarships, however, the advisor for financial aid told me the only way i wouldn't have to pay anything would be if the wholke tuition was paid for by athletics...

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most of the students are rather average. There are a select few good looking people, both males and females. The attractive ones tend to be on sport teams and a mojority of those are kind of your stereotypical jerks. Females seem to flock for attention and again, the majority of the populars are in sports.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Amazing Staff and Great Classes – Calumet College of St. Joseph has amazing professors that are always willing to help and it feels like they are personally invested in their students education. You get individual attention and can always find a helping hand.

2 College Sophomore

Local Area: Nice Little Town but Not So Pretty. Whiting has the charm of a smaller town with the convenience of being near a big city; Chicago, IL. There are plenty of fests, parades, parks, and we even have our own little theater to visit. Although Whiting is a great place, our appearance is over shadowed by the BP refineries which cause so much pollution.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I Have Reasonable Suspicion. It is possible that there have been three occasions where I have suspected students participating in suspicious activities in the parking lot or drive away for fear that I would see them.

2 College Junior

Transportation: It's Available – Popular transportation includes the bus (not provided by the school), walking and driving.
