What Students Are Saying

3.94 Average Rating
Kalamazoo College is academically challenging, but the classes are interesting. We have 3 10-week quarters per school year, in which you choose 3 classes (plus the odd P.E. class) per quarter. There are help centers for each department, and of course, profs whose doors (and email boxes) are always open.
Hanna from Grosse Pointe Woods, MI
Kalamazoo College is extremely difficult. It is looked at as a small ivy league school so a lot is expected of students.
Cassandra from Kalamazoo, MI
The school seems to really want to push you to do your best, although most teachers are aware of stress levels among students, especially as the quarter progresses. Still, we are encouraged to do our best. 3 classes in 10 weeks can be pretty intense and stressful! Thereâ??s even this stressed/hardworking culture at K. But this shouldnâ??t deter you from the school if it does. Everyone is different. And teachers are willing to help you with questions in their office hours or by appointment, and some departments have TAs who are there to help students as well! This kind of help and assistance goes a long way!
I think a lot of students are ambitious and passionate at K matching well with the rigor of classes! I hear the sciences are particularly rigorous here.
A from Chicago, IL
Very challenging, but the professors are great and willing to help outside of class.
Jessica from Portage, MI
Academic prestige is #1 at K, but it is easy to find help everywhere, from upperclassmen, to profs, to the Writing Center, Math/Physics Center, and Bio/Chem Center!
Sherin from Kalamazoo, MI
I do not know how rigorous it is, but I expect a challenge.
