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 1,450 students from 40 states and 34 countries. Twenty-six percent of our students identify themselves as domestic students of color; about 10 percent are international students; 15 percent are the first in their families to attend college; one in four comes from a family of modest income.

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, and campus life fully reflects these characteristics.
