Welcome to Calvin, where learning is anything but static and passive. Here, you'll join a community of learners that digs in, speaks up, responds to the world's needs and questions the status quo. You'll learn to think in new and different ways, to use the ideas of others to sharpen your own, to acquire knowledge that is both broad and deep, and to engage God's world with courage and joy.
This is college as it was intended.
A Calvin education will form your heart and mind in ways that get you ready for your future. Research, expansive global opportunities, service-learning and hands-on experiences contribute to the success Calvin graduates have in careers and further graduate study. In all of these things, Calvin’s excellent Christian faculty walk alongside you to ensure that you find God’s path for you in the world.
