    Great for these types of students

    Calumet College is great for the returning student, great for the first time student or any level they have exactly what you need.

    Tips for prospective students

    I admonish any perspective student in the region to check out the best kept secret. It is well worth the four years of time and effort. Better than any of the larger universities in the area that boast of their satellite campuses!!!

    Bang for the buck

    The admission may be a little more expensive but well worth it.

    Am enjoying being here

    I attend at night but I still am able to keep up on the activities along with the day students. The faculty get to know you by name even the guidance and financial aid counselors. Everyone is like family!!

    Am learning a lot

    I love this college. The academic level is wonderful especially for returning students like myself. The student-teacher ratio is great so the attention I get from my profs. is excellent!!

    Campus Safety

    It's dark in the parking lots and doesn't have much lighting so if your a female, it can be a little spooky. But the security is friendly and do check often.

    Greek Life

    ??????

    Clubs and Activities

    I don't have time, so I don't know.

    Great for these types of students

    If you want to learn from someone who has been there and done that, then this is the right place for you. Also for those who have a busy scheduled, this school is perfect because they offer classes that are one day a week.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Since I commute, I really don't know.

    Bang for the buck

    If this is perfect for me, it is perfect for you. It is very doable.

    What to do for fun

    Since I take night classes and I commute time is an hour, I really can't give an opinion of what to do for fun.

    Food and Dining

    nothing special.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    The work is hard and the professors are a bit tough, but it is worth it if you are serious about your field and what to learn and understand what you are going into. The professors do a very good job in teaching because they have experience and are extremely helpful.

    Tips for prospective students

    Since some classes are one day a week for 3-4 hours, get ready to work hard. It's great that it's one day but the work makes up for it.

    In three sentences

    I am really happy with the professors at this college. The professors know exactly what they are teaching because they either worked in that field or is working in that field. They have much experience that can help you in your studies or in your future careers.

    What to do for fun

    Normally, I head to the gym and work out or play basketball. Others go to bars, shopping, or just hang out with their friends. There is a Horseshoe casino a few minutes away from the college.

    Food and Dining

    There isn't much to choose from besides the typical Subway, McDonalds, and Little Caesars. Some restaurants include Aurelios and Schoops. I normally just bring my own lunch and dinner to school.

    Dorm Life

    There are not dorms at Calumet College of Saint Joseph. However, there are plenty of houses and apartments available to rent. I commute back and forth to school.

    Academic Rigor

    The difficulties that are present at this school depend on your major. This past year I was enrolled in the most difficult classes I could imagine...until I saw this years schedule! Words of advice, put school first.

    Tips for prospective students

    Calumet College of Saint Joseph is a smaller school, so if the prospective student is looking for a larger school this is not the one to attend. Also, there is not much to do around the neighborhood of Whiting. Athletes that are interested in pursuing an education at this college will have a lot of fun with the coaches.

    In three sentences

    Calumet College of Saint Joseph is a great school for those students who prefer individual attention from their professors. I have only attended this school for one year, but I have had a few wonderful professors. The best thing about this school is the fact that the professors are willing to help any student at any cost.
