Upcoming events

June 17, 2014
President Le Roy in Pella

You (alumni, friends, parents, students, prospective students...) are invited to attend a dessert reception on Tuesday, June 17, at 7 p.m., to meet with Calvin's 10th president, Dr. Michael Le Roy. This will be a great  opportunity to get to know the new president, hear about his vision for Calvin and participate in conversation with him.

We'll be gathering at the Vermeer Global Pavilion, Vermeer Rd in Pella [map]. Dessert-style refreshments will be available —and there is no charge for this event.

Questions? 616-526-6142 |

Recent events

April 28, 2012 | Our Energy Future: Why It Matters

Historically, economic activity and energy consumption have been intimately linked: as economies grow, energy demand grows, too. But, what happens if energy supplies are constrained? Will economic activity become constrained, too? What impacts might this have on you, your family, your church, and Calvin College? How should we, as Reformed Christians, respond to these considerations?

Calvin engineering professor Matthew Kuperus Heun will share some results of his work within an emerging body of research on the interactions between economies and the energy that drives
them. Expect a discussion with many challenging questions and far fewer answers.

Saturday, April 28, 2012: 7 p.m. presentation with refreshments following
