4 College Freshman

Academics: All the classes I have taken here have been a great experience to learn more about the topic.

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.

5 College Senior

Academics: The English Department is the greatest department of the college in my opinion. My writing has improved tremendously and I've been introduced to so many theories and schools of thought through the major.

Academics: K College is the best school in Michigan with U of Michigan in Ann Arbor being its only real competitor. Though we only take three classes per trimester, this is a very tough school. Each trimester is only 10 weeks long so we move very fast. In the fall and winter, we're usually taking finals while most other schools are just getting into mid-terms. Skipping class can be fatal to your grade and is not something that is encouraged. K Students study during most of the week and leave the partying on Friday and Saturday night. Usually on Sundays, K students are back to hitting the books. Popular study areas are the lounges in dorms, Hicks, and the library. The curriculum at K is, in my opinion, the best one out there. The K plan allows you to customize your education and there only a few broad requirements. You have to take a language up to at least the 2 year level, you have to get 5 gym credits, and you have to take a seminar every year. Aside from that, the requirements differ depending on your major.

Academics: The academics are AMAZING. Super hard (at least for me, and I'm doing a pre-med curriculum) but super rewarding and intellectually stimulating.
