History

Kalamazoo College was founded in 1833 by a group of Baptist ministers and was originally dubbed the "Michigan and Huron Institute." Instruction at the Institute began in the fall of 1836. In 1837, the name of the fledgling college was changed to the "Kalamazoo Literary Institute" and the school underwent its first attempt to secure recognition as a college from the state of Michigan. In 1838, however, the University of Michigan opened the Kalamazoo Branch of the University of Michigan, providing a local competitor to the Literary Institute. In 1840, the two schools merged, and from 1840 to 1850 the College operated as the Kalamazoo Branch of the University of Michigan. In 1850, the Kalamazoo Literary Institute name was restored and in 1855 the school finally received an educational charter from the state of Michigan, entailing explicit recognition of the school as a college. After receiving its educational charter, the school changed its name to Kalamazoo College.

James Stone was the first president of Kalamazoo College and led the school from 1842 through 1863. Stone was responsible for institution of high academic standards that allowed the College to receive its charter. Stone also played a role in the creation of the Republican Party.

Kalamazoo College's reputation as an academic powerhouse and a leader in international education was built during the presidency of Weimer Hicks, who served from 1954 to 1971. Hicks conceived of the "K Plan" program under which most Kalamazoo students spend at least one term abroad and spend at least one term working in an academic internship. As part of the original "K Plan," Kalamazoo College students had the opportunity to attend school year-round. One typical pattern was First year: Fall: On campus; Winter: On campus; Spring: On campus; Summer: Off; Sophomore Year: Fall: On campus; Winter: On campus; Spring: Career Development Internship; Summer: On campus; Junior year: Fall: Study Abroad; Winter: Study Abroad; Spring: On campus; Summer: On campus; Senior year: Fall: Senior Individualized Project; Winter: On campus; Spring: On campus. Variations to this schedule -- such as spring-term study abroad programs, full-year study abroad programs, and winter SIPs -- were also common. However, the College scrapped its summer term in 1996. Some attribute the decision to the admissions office's difficulty in attracting students to a year-round college. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...

Academics

Kalamazoo College is widely recognized as an academic leader among national liberal arts colleges. The "K plan"--or the academic plan that Kalamazoo offers its students--consists of a rigorous liberal arts education, supplemented by one or more terms abroad and the opportunity to pursue substantive internships during the summers. Additionally, all Kalamazoo College students are required to complete a senior individualized project (SIP), which may take the form of a thesis, an artistic performance, or any other work-intensive project of a student's choosing. Kalamazoo College is also unique in that it requires its students to take comprehensive exams in their major before graduating.


Kalamazoo College is a national leader in study abroad opportunities. In 2003, US News & World Report 2003 Edition America's Best Colleges ranked Kalamazoo College as #1 in study abroad programs.

In 2001, the Kalamazoo College men's basketball team was at the center of a lengthy dispute regarding the outcome of a January 20 game with league rival Olivet College. With Olivet leading 70-69, Kalamazoo College center Kevin Baird made a shot at the buzzer that was initially waved off by referees. The referees then reviewed videotape of the game and determined that Baird had, in fact, released his shot before the buzzer and awarded Kalamazoo College a 71-70 victory. After the game, Olivet filed a protest with the conference commissioner, claiming that officials had misapplied the way in which videotape may be used. On January 23, the conference upheld the protest and awarded Olivet the victory. Kalamazoo then filed a protest with the NCAA, claiming that Olivet's protest was in violation of NCAA bylaws. On February 1, the NCAA upheld Kalamazoo's counter-protest and again awarded the game to the Hornets. The dispute between Olivet and Kalamazoo received national attention and Baird's shot was shown repeatedly on ESPN.

During the fall quarter, there are two main events: Fall Fest and Homecoming dance. In Fall Fest, student organizations provide activities for the students to do such as pumpkin carving and bobbing for apples. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


During the winter quarter the college holds the annual Monte Carlo night, on which the student body raises money by gambling in a makeshift casino manned where the professors are the dealers. They play for scrip redeemable for prizes. They change the money from year to year to prevent counterfeits.


Currently, the spring quarter of every year contains three notable social events. One is Crystal Ball, a campus dance held by the college's GLBT organization, to which many students come cross-dressed, or in fantastical costumes. The second is the Day of Gracious Living. On the Day of Gracious Living, classes are canceled. This day is never given a specific date, and is instead announced the night before by the President of the Student Commission as a surprise to the student body. Though this tradition was originally started with the intention that the students devote their free day to community service, it has evolved into a campus-wide trip to the beaches of Lake Michigan in South Haven or elsewhere. Lastly is the Spring Fling which is an all-day, family-friendly student party. There is usually cotton candy, live music, and inflatable jungle gym equipment. LGBT (or GLBT) is an acronym used as a collective term to refer to lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgender people. ... Lake Michigan is one of the five Great Lakes of North America, and the only one in the group located entirely within the United States. ... There are a few places named South Haven in the United States: South Haven, Indiana South Haven, Kansas South Haven, Michigan South Haven, Minnesota This is a disambiguation page — a navigational aid which lists other pages that might otherwise share the same title. ...


Another notable tradition for K College freshmen is an optional portion of the orientation program called LandSea. Each year, 80 freshmen venture into Killarney Provincial Park before the school year begins. The programs consists of 19 days of hiking, canoing, climbing, rappelling and sailing. This program imparts both 'hard skills' like orienteering and outdoor survival, as well as 'soft skills', such as conflict resolution and relationship building. Student "patrols" travel through the park with a leader and also participate in a 2-day solo experience. Many regard LandSea as significant in easing the difficult transition from high school to college.


Service Learning is also one of the most common extracurricular activities for K students. Many work with children from the surrounding public elementary schools, such as Woodward Elementary, and also with local high schools. The college organizes these activities through programs such as PALS and AMIGOS. Some students volunteer at health clinics; others work as Spanish translators at Bronson Methodist Hospital and Borgess Medical Center. Bronson Methodist Hospital, located at 601 John Street in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA, is the flagship of the Bronson Healthcare Group, a not-for-profit healthcare system serving all of southwest Michigan and northern Indiana. ...


The campus is built around a grassy hill known as "The Quad". The Quad is also the site of numerous large scale events throughout the year, including Homecoming, Spring Fling, Convocation, and Commencement. Furthermore, at the top of the hill lies Stetson Chapel, which is a favorite location for alumni wedding services. The Quad is home to another popular Kalamazoo College student tradition, "streaking the Quad", a noisy, late-night descent from the Chapel, down the hill, and back to the top again. Tradition dictates that students must touch the school sign before returning to the top. There is a mass-streak after the spring performance by Frelon, the Kalamazoo College dance group, and also during the day by the senior class. This often coincides with a wedding.


During the winter, "tray-ing" (using a cafeteria tray as a sled) down the quad is a popular tradition. A garbage bag or box are alternatives. Although discouraged by the administration for safety reasons, "tray-ing" is very popular.


In the 1970s the school did away with the Greek system because of its social divisiveness, though an agreement with Western Michigan University allows Kalamazoo students to rush there. Western Michigan University (abbr. ...
