    GREAT COLLEGE EXPERIENCE!!

    I wanted to attend Kalamazoo college because of the open curriculum and strong study abroad program. The class sizes were small and I knew I would be able to create strong relationships with faculty. Also, there were no frats or sororities.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The curriculum is excellent. It is one of the few schools in the country that has no requirements (aside from fulfilling a major and taking physical education requirements). You also don't have to choose your major until a sophomore year so you have lots of time to explore your passions.
