College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I did not get off campus housing through the school; I am currently residing with my parents.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a great variety of chain and family owned restaurants, which provides many different cuisine options.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school is very strict on many topics such as attendance and visitation hours, but all in the best interest of the students.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had no problem finding scholarships I qualified for, but it took a while to build up a substantial amount of aid. Even then, I am struggling to pay out of pocket costs. There is also ridiculous expectations of students to keep scholarships.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The computer accessibility is great, but the printers crash all too often and make it hard to format papers.

College Freshman

Campus Food: I do not have a meal plan through my school; I bring meals from home.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am a commuter student who does not stay on campus.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I cook what I want when I want!

College Junior

Administration: We don't have campus transportation

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Calvin is way to strict with parking tickets

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Wifi is very in and out

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Lots of great options to choose from, the hours are horrible making it very crowded.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Very strong environment, sometimes the rules can be rather ridiculous.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Since we are a 10 minute drive to Downtown Grand Rapids, we have endless options to go and try like Wolfgang's and Yesterdog and all of the restaurants in downtown.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus safety does a good job at what they do, especially when a crisis hits our campus.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The curriculum is tough, but the professors really go out of their way to help you out with the content you are learning. There are many quiet places to study on campus you just need to find the right one for you and go their often.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We do not have a Greek Life here at Calvin.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Calvin does a great job helping students to meet their goals. The facilities are great and the professors are willing to take time out of their day to meet one on one with you to help you out in any way they can.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many places where you can rent a house with your friends that are really close to campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are many scholarships that are offer at Calvin, you just need to know how to find them.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities are some of the best of D3 schools in Michigan. However sports are not a big part of campus life unless it is a rivalry game.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They are really strict when it comes to drinking and drugs, but otherwise the school is pretty lenient on everything else. The open hours are annoying but they make you go out and find new places on or off campus to go and hang out with your friends of the opposite gender.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I, fortunately, did not have to do much with the financial aid process, but I hear from friends that it's great.

4 College Senior

Academics: Being a public health student has been interesting. The program is very new (only about 3 years old) and it shows. All of the professors are in other departments as well, and there aren't very many students, so sometimes the program seems like an afterthought. But I think with time, it has the potential to be a great program! The workload is pretty light compared to other majors in the sciences, but it's still a considerable size. Internship opportunities are rare, but this is because the department is so small and new, not many connections have been made yet.

5 College Senior

Local Area: Grand Rapids is absolutely wonderful. There is always things to do and places to go. I've never been bored. It's got a super hipster vibe. There are tons of obscure coffee shops and restaurants to explore. And the breweries!! They are never ending and it's amazing.
