About this community

Founded in 2007 the Honors community has flourishes as a vibrant place for learning, friendships and fun. Selection for the floor is competitive and it is highly recommended that students apply to the floor during the early months of the year they intend to start at Calvin. Students applying to live on this floor should normally meet honors eligibility standards: a Calvin GPA of at least 3.3 and involvement in at least one honors course or contract per year.

This floor is rooted in the mission of Calvin residence life in that it is a place where we offer students the opportunity for intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and relational growth.
