4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus safety works hard to ensure a safe atmosphere, and I generally have felt safe around campus alone at most hours of the night.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors are very nice and care about the students, and make efforts to help when students seek them out. However, the course load for general requirements and the professors for many of these introductory levels classes are much too difficult and try to make the class more work than it should be. Sometimes core courses are 2-3 credit classes, but the professors act like our priority should be their class and make the assignments and homework align with a 4 credit class.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For me as a nursing major, I believe I'll have very good prospects after graduation for a job.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere on campus can be cliquey and it's quite expensive to live here (yet they typically require that both freshman and sophomore students from out of state/country live on campus and it can be quite a financial burden).

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is present generally with big rivalries, and there's decent support at athletic events. Sometimes for non-athletes the facilities are not available and not as well kept.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I likely wouldn't choose my school again, because the sense of community at my college has been disappointing and coming from overseas has hindered my ability to feel accepted here.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I don't really know about the athletics dept

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like the different clubs

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Since Calvin does not have a football team, all other sports are loved and attended equally!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the school that I go to and what Calvin College represents. I am proud to say that I attend school here.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: It is mandatory for all freshman to complete a program on sexual assault. This program educates us on the subject and how to prevent/help if we see if happening. The Campus Safety at our school works hard as well.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: Professors are of high quality and genuinely care about the students. They are very accommodating to my narcolepsy. There is a variety of courses offered, class size is small, and class style depends on the teacher.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities for jobs and internships. I get sent emails on a regular basis for new opportunities.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Living on campus is like instantly joining our own friendly community.

5 College Student

Athletics: Calvin College's varsity sports teams are known to be in the top teams.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have a great health center here on campus. I feel very safe to walk on campus alone at night. We have Emergency poles everywhere to contact campus safety and there are always cars patrolling and willing to give you a ride from one destination to another.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The average class size is about 23. My freshman year I had a math class with 8 students. This is really helpful for students like me who need more one on one help from professors. One thing I wish was different was the style of the classrooms. The school is slowing turning some classes over into more modern styles, but there are still many classrooms with chalkboards.

Overall Experience: There is a high job placement rate at Calvin. With lots of jobs fairs held on campus monthly. Sometimes the job fairs are even specific to departments.

Campus Housing: I love living in the dorms. This was one of the main reasons I chose Calvin because of their communities. Every floor is like a family. Next year I will be a residents assistant.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have so many options for intramural sports of all kinds. There's climbing, dance, kayaking, badminton, racket ball, then all your typical sports. The gym facilities are amazing. They are not only a place to get a work out, but there are places to study by a fire as well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would pick a school where it's easier to get off campus. There are a lot of great places to study and hangout, but sometimes it's nice to go out into the "real" world.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most are great. Could give more leeway to what a postBA student needs to take.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They have an active career center and will alert students to job opportunities in their field.

Health & Safety: I only know of one incident that has happened this entire school year thus far and it was dealt with swiftly, publicly and privately, and satisfactorily.
