Kalamazoo College 2023-24 Application Essay Question Explanation

The Requirements: 1 essay of 500 words

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Oddball

How do you hope to engage with the greater community as a student at K and take advantage of what the city of Kalamazoo has to offer? (500 words or less)

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the key to answering this question is—you guessed it—research! Spend some time on the college’s website and check out what clubs, sports teams, theater groups, or other extracurricular opportunities they have to offer. Maybe you’re eager to combine your love of swimming and coaching kids as a member of Swim for Success. Perhaps you’ve always been the class clown and hope to join Monkapult, the campus improv troupe. As a top city for artists and entrepreneurs, Kalamazoo has a ton to offer, so research the city as well. Maybe you’ll get a job at the Kalamazoo Farmers Market to get an “in” with the farm-to-table scene. Perhaps you’ll take a glassblowing class at Glass Art Kalamazoo to exercise your creativity and meet some local artists. Show admissions that, as part of both the university and the city community, you will be curious and engaged.
