Shelby Long – Admission Counselor

Shelby LongHometown: White Lake, MI

Favorite Food: Pastas (all of them)

When you visit Kalamazoo, you must… visit the KIA! They are always showing incredible exhibitions plus artwork pulled from their own collection of over 4,000 pieces!

Favorite college memory: Studying abroad my junior year in Strasbourg, France. The experience gave me a new level of independence and helped me become proficient in the language.

Advice for prospective students: Figure out exactly what you want in a school and stick to it! I ended up transferring to K from another university because I did not do enough research to determine what I wanted and required in a school. Kalamazoo College was the perfect fit for me, which I figured out by visiting several institutions, asking questions and putting in the time.
