Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of different restaurants around Kalamazoo that are great options. Students are given a fairly good discount.

Administration: The campus isn't as strict as others are, however they are pretty strict about noise levels in the dorms and the use of alcohol in the dorms. They aren't very strict about smoking around campus, which is hard to enforce but it would be nice if there were more places that were smoke free.

Scholarships: It was a very smooth process and there were always people willing to help and answer questions from the financial aid office.

Party Scene: Very fun! The party scene is a good way to relax and have fun and that's good to have when all week it's been nonstop work and stress. It allows people the chance to unwind and have a good time with friends.

Campus Food: Not always the best food ever, but it is good sometimes. It's nice that there are lots of different options and the omlete bar is definitely the best.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It was very easy to go through the housing process. The housing committee really listened to the applications and paired roommates who get along quite nicely.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The facilities that we do have are very nice, but a lot of it is not accessible to non-athlete students. The best thing in my opinion is the pool.

Off-Campus Housing: I am currently looking for a place to live off campus and was pleasantly surprised at how many different choices I have so close to campus.

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of different varieties of options at many different prices, and there are often student discounts.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: They really do try very hard to give as much as they can to students, but there have been a couple of cases where friends of mine have had to transfer because they couldn't afford it anymore, and the school couldn't give them anymore money.

Party Scene: There is something going on every weekend, but your options are limited. There will be more than one weekend where you don't go out because you don't like the options of the places to go to.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The cafeteria is sometimes great, and then other times really bad. There have been times where I only eat cereal because nothing else is appealing to me. I often go to the sandwich place on campus cause I know exactly what I'm going to get. I like it, but it does get boring as the year goes on.

Campus Housing: The internet is not that great, but I would say that is the worst thing about living on campus. The beds usually aren't bad, and you can ask for a new bed if you need it. The bed I had one year had a broken spring in it, but I was able to get a knew bed. The rooms are pretty average, and the bathrooms are cleaned often.

Off-Campus Housing: I know who people who have had trouble with their specific landlords, but it is a case-by-case basis. There are a decent number of options to choose from close to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are some really good options in the area around campus. Some are more expensive than others, but most are decently priced.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Except for the honor code, the administration does not place any particularly harsh restrictions on anything.

Party Scene: I am not a big fan of parties so I do not particularly care about this question. I have heard from other people that it is pretty decent, however.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The options in the dining hall are pretty limited, especially for vegetarians and vegans. The overall food quality is never particularly great either. However, breakfast is usually good.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are extremely close to the class buildings, and people are generally pretty social with each other because of the lack of student population. The housing lottery process can be a bit of a hassle but everything usually turns out fine. The overall amenities in the dorms are not too awful; the heat can be wonky sometimes but it is not a huge deal.

Athletics: Honestly, it's a D3 small liberal arts school. If you want a Big 10 sports environment, go somewhere else. If you want amazing academics and a great campus life, come to K. People are supportive of athletes, though.

Off-Campus Dining: Some really nice places nearby. Crow's Nest is a favorite... also Water Street Coffee, Zazio's, Food Dance, and many more.

Administration: Mixed bag. The administration is super accessible, which is amazing. You can have anyone stay over in any dorm you want any time without checking in. Honor code is big here. The big problem is our alcohol policy-- it is absolutely horrendous and forces students to binge drink off campus. It is dangerous and I really hope that they can address this issue someday soon.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: K College made sure that coming here was possible for me. I got a pretty huge scholarship-- I don't get any need-based aid, but my merit scholarship covers a pretty huge percentage of tuition. Contact the Financial Aid Office and Admissions Office--honestly, they are super approachable and here to help.

Party Scene: Parties here are a lot of fun. If you're super into the big school frat party scene, K probably isn't for you (although you can go to Western's parties) but if you want to drink and smoke weed and dance with lots of people you know, K has some solid parties. You do have to go off-campus for parties...our on-campus alcohol policy is absolutely archaic and pretty terrible, but most off-campus houses that host parties are pretty close by. There is almost always something happening on Friday and Saturday nights, and occasionally during the week. Plus 30/30 in the spring, where there is a big party every day for a month.
