5 College Freshman

Diversity: Calvin college prides itself in making all aspects of education accommodating for anyone who desires to be a part of it. There is not set number of how many people from a certain group or place should be attending here or accepted for that matter. The bounds for diversity is pleasing to Calvin College and everyone here is pleasant. God tells us to love our neighbor as our self, He does not say we should do so only if we are just like our neighbor. If it were so we would not love anyone because we are all different.
