Kalamazoo College is, overall, a great place. Maybe the food isn't the best, but you can work around that. The important part is that it attracts people that are not only incredibly intelligent but are also kind, respectful, and fun!
The food isn't good, and it's a bit of a toss-up whether your residence hall has a decent kitchen.
The people are great. I really feel like I found my crowd. Everyone is cool and a little quirky. Everyone is smart, interesting, and fun to be around. The small classes are great for my style of learning, too.
The food isn't the best. The dorms are also a little rough. You can think of it all as the college experience, though.
I like the close and personal relationships I have with the faculty.
Sometimes the classes are intense, especially with the 10-week terms.
I really love having small classes and professors who want you to succeed and care about you.
Food isn’t great but you win some and lose some!
I enjoyed the general support for academics. There were other opportunities such as sports and theater arts available, but when you needed time to study or research that took priority. I also enjoyed that, despite it being a relatively small school, there were plenty of employment opportunities, including as a TA or in a research position.
The college itself seems to be run... oddly. Communication between the top, such as the school president and dean, can be shaky at best. There is also a history of the school responding poorly to political events. On the level of individual students and teachers, it's fine, but the ones running the school aren't as great.
