Twenty-five percent of Kalamazoo College students participate in intercollegiate athletics. The Hornet Athletic Association supports 18 MIAA teams, providing resources for equipment, travel, coaching excellence, and the immediate needs of Hornet Athletics. Gifts from alumni, parents and friends through the Hornet Athletic Association are essential to the K student-athlete experience.
Athletics at K
Division III student-athletes take both halves of the name seriously. They recognize that their studies are the true reason they are in college, and they commit to a team above and beyond their coursework because of a real passion for their sport. Kalamazoo College provides a balance of rigorous academics and competitive athletics as part of an individualized K-Plan.
Balance • Excellence • Success • Teamwork
Under these guiding principles, K student-athletes learn discipline, perseverance, and leadership – skills they take with them into their careers and communities as alumni.
