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.

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