5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Along with a great variety of on campus jobs the school also hosts a website where local jobs can post looking for Calvin students. I have already begun the application process for many babysitting and restaurant jobs, and plan to start applying on campus after orientation. I believe I will be able to find a worth while job while in school, and that Calvin will prepare me for an amazing job after graduation.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I've not heard of any crime. As a small Christian liberal arts school, violence isn't really something I would expect of the faculty or the student body.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: When I review my actual logical reasons for choosing Calvin over my other top choice (even though it's really because I'm just in love with Calvin), housing was definatley a big factor. The dorms, while obviously tiny, are reasonably spacious; bathrooms are set up suite style, sophmores usually sharing a bathroom with freshman, decent sized, and with great cabinet/closet space; hang out areas are plentiful and really nice; RAs are awesome; just the whole dorm experience is amazing.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't think greek life exists at Calvin. I'm not super interested in joining it any way and am glad that there's not a huge focus on something that can be a bit trivial.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Honestly, I wouldn't rate anything about this college as anything but the best. However, their athletic department seems really appealing. I love that there is more of a focus on basketball and soccer more so than football. I like the uniqueness of the sports community. I've seen and heard great things about the intramurals, and there's even low commitment weekly soccer games- perfect for someone not entirely focused on sports like myself.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: While I have not yet begun my first term at Calvin, I am entirely head-over-heels in love. Having toured campus and stayed over night with a current student I am confident that Calvin is the best possible college for me to attend. It's diverse, has a great community, offers multiple opportunities to bond with professors and students, had amazing professors, and is just absolutley incredible.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A great school with lots of opportunities. Grand rapids is an awesome city with plenty to do. The academics will challenge you but will prepare you.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Easy to get connected and get a job out of school

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very safe, nothing to worry about on campus

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms is fun and there was great community on our floor. Always stuff to do.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Great athletics with some of the top teams in division 3.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great school with challenging academics that will prepare you for the job industry. Lots of attractive, friendly people and a great community.

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.
