Ten Ways to Get Through Tenth Week

It’s no secret that Kalamazoo College is academically rigorous. We may only take three classes a quarter, but all of the material that would normally be spread out across a 15-week semester is packed into only ten weeks. Luckily, there are […]

Make Your Way to K

Here’s the thing, at this point in the college process, you are deciding where you’re going to end up for the next four years of your life. The next four years – it sounds scary and almost like a decision too […]

Making an Impact at K

Guess who’s back, back again. After a summer of work and new adventures, I’m happy to return back to the Zoo (although I do live only 30 minutes away from it) and surround myself with the people and opportunities that […]
