Hornet Athletic Association

Give to K

Thirty-five percent of Kalamazoo College students participate in intercollegiate athletics. The Hornet Athletic Association is the charitable giving program of Hornet Athletics. Designed to provide unrestricted support to address the evolving needs of the Athletics Department and its 18 intercollegiate programs, gifts to the fund have an immediate impact, enhancing the overall experience for student-athletes. Gifts of all size make a difference and level up our abilities to offer rewarding experiences for all student-athletes.

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

Kalamazoo College Athletics continues to prepare student-athletes for success through the BEST guiding principles: Balance, Excellence, Success and Teamwork. Following this model, student-athletes are able to develop character, leadership qualities, sportsmanship and academic excellence—all skills that will help them to be their BEST in their communities and careers.

Mark your calendars!

Hornet Athletics Giving Day is Wednesday, February 21, 2024. Join fellow Hornets in supporting K student-athletes in this annual one-day giving campaign. Learn more about the day and its history at Hornet Athletics Giving Day.
