Students at Kalamazoo College are members not only of an academic community of teachers, learners and scholars, but also of a large social community of friends and colleagues.

K enrolls 1,467 students from 39 states and 28 countries; 32.8 percent of our students are domestic students of color; 8 percent of our degree-seeking students are international students; 15 percent of our students are the first in their families to attend college; and 22.8 percent of our students who file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) receive a Pell Grant. The College continues the work to make the K-Plan equitable and accessible to the increasingly diverse group of students choosing K for their undergraduate education.

At the heart of campus life is the concept of residential living that provides a vital contribution to the full education and development of students. Many of the faculty and staff attend events and activities with students.

Student organizations include interest-based, advocacy/identity-based, social, social action, and political groups. Many students participate in the fine and performing arts, and they enjoy a high level of autonomy in planning campus events.

Kalamazoo College students are bright, energetic, highly involved and creative people. Campus life fully reflects these characteristics.
