3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It seems to be very average and expected of a college campus.

4 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are special opportunities for first and second-year students to lower competition for inter/externships.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The room has an adequate amount of space, but my roommate situation has not been the best.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We aren't a division one school so we aren't expected to do especially well, but sporting events are regularly attended and advertised.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes I have taken have been engaging and I feel that they have been good learning experiences. The professors are also great. The social aspect has been more of an adjustment than expected.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Security won't drive you off campus. They are all really nice though. Kalamazoo is not the safest city to be in, but as long as you have common sense you should be fine. K's administration is no better or worse than other schools, though we have S3A, which helps surviors of sexual assualt, and our counseling center had good couselors.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wish there was an it's good choice. The professors I've had have mostly been good to great, but some of the visiting and newer profs don't understand K's scheduling or work load. Most people have had good relationships with profs, and enjoy their classes. By sophomore year, when we have to declare majors, most people know what they want to do, and you start seeing them more regularly in your classes. Classes are small, so profs notice when you are missing, and they do try to reach out to you if you miss too many. But it's super easy to talk to professors, and form close relationships, and get invited to TA or do research. Man classes, in the humanities at least, are discussion based, weaved in with some lectures and movies. Service learning is a big thing here, and you may have to do some volunteer service for classes. There are a lot of cool classes, but they fill up fast, because of the small cap size.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: K pioneered the 'externship' program, where you go live and intern with an alumni to find out what they're job and life are really like. It's cool, but some are super competitive. The CCPD tries to get and many people involved as possible, and they are a good resource for helping you apply to internships and externships, even if they aren't through the school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's all about luck. I've gotten good rooms both my years, but you can end up with a terrible roommate or a really small room, no matter what. It's easier sophomore year, when you get to pick your roommates and where you want to live, but its' still a lottery. And you can end up hating your best friends. The upperclassmen dorms a better than the first year dorms. Crissey has a great kitchen, cool RA's and a nice lounge. It's a bit pricey though, so most people live off campus when they can.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are a tier 3 school, so most people didn't come to play sports for their whole time. We like our teams and support them, but they aren't huge and we don't do tailgates. But some people do have a lot of school spirit and they can pump everybody up.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The people are good, some of them are terrible. Lots of clubs and cool classes to take. Workload is heavy and dense, but lots of great professors. Lots of fun activities but on by stu-orgs and the school.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Professors all work hard to get the information to us. If we have questions beyond their knowldge, they go out of their way to find the answer and help us out.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security is always on the line if we need someone to walk with. They are very nice and friendly to those in need.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My professors all know me and put effort into helping better myself.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities to meet alumni and reach out to the K communiy.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are weekly activities in the dorms in order to bring the community together.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We have a new gym being made. Our weight room is pretty small at the moment but in a year we should have the new gym up and running.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many activities throughout the week that allow us to meet new people and have a place to feel welcomed. I enjoy the clubs offered and the weekly movies.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The security crew is really great at K. We can call them 24 hours a day, and they are available to help with really anything. One night I had to walk in the dark by myself and I asked a security staff member to accompany me and he did so happily.
