Multicultural Fly-In Program

If you are a high school senior of multicultural background or you are a student with a strong interest in Diversity and Inclusion, we invite you to spend a couple days on our campus learning more about our dynamic campus community. Kalamazoo College is an increasingly diverse liberal arts college with a focus on challenging academics and experiential education. Our first-year class continues to be diverse in composition, comprised of 24% domestic students of color, 8% international students and 38% students from outside of Michigan.

This year’s program will be offered in conjunction with our regularly scheduled Fall Open House.

Friday, November 8

  • Attend a class
  • Participate in a workshop dialogue about diversity and inclusion

Saturday, November 9

  • Attend the Fall Open House
  • Listen to presentations on Admissions and the K-Plan
