Kalamazoo College 2020-21 Application Essay Question Explanation

The Requirements: 1 essay of 500 words

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Why

In 500 words or less, answer the following essay prompt.

The metro Kalamazoo area is a bustling, thriving community, home to more than 340,000 residents, which is a distinct difference between us and other private institutions. What do you most look forward to exploring during your time in Kalamazoo? (500 words)

Kalamazoo College is proud of its hometown. If Kalamazoo went on The Bachelor, she would gush the entire season about how much fun they were going to have if she got a hometown date — and for good reason! The city of Kalamazoo is a “bustling, thriving community” with murals, museums, nightlife, tons of cuisine options, and parks. It’s also the home to one of the Top 100 Liberal Arts Colleges in the U.S., according to US News. So although the current state of the world might not allow a thorough exploration of the community right now, why do you want to go to Kalamazoo College (in Kalamazoo, Michigan)? Maybe you want to attend a liberal arts school that has networking opportunities on and off campus. Perhaps you’re hoping to explore all of Kalamazoo’s IG-worthy biking trails when you’re not building your K-plan or studying for your Critical Ethnic Studies classes. Whatever your reasoning may be, we recommend visiting Kalamazoo’s website to get a better feel for the college, campus, and community. Include specific details to show admissions that you’ll be ready for what they have to offer come your first official school day in the fall!
