The Calvin College Phonathon exists to engage students with supporters, and to connect supporters with some of the very students they're impacting. Next time Calvin calls you, it may be Jae or Tammie!
I am currently double majoring in religion and music worship. After the four years at Calvin, I plan on attending Calvin Theological Seminary.
My favorite hobby is going out in nature and exploring!
I am from Anchorage, Alaska. Both Grand Rapids and Anchorage have snow, lots of it, and are cold (which I actually like)!
The people I get to live with are just awesome. It is just a big family here!
I tremendously enjoy being able to talk to the donors and hearing their stories about Calvin. It is interesting to see that Calvin alumni are all over the place!
Without support from the community, most students would not be able to afford the cost of tuition. Donor gifts keep tuition costs lower, and we all get an amazing education!
I decided that Calvin was a good fit for me because it offered a quality Christian liberal arts education at an affordable price.
Given that I am originally from tropical Singapore but grew up in bustling Hong Kong and China, my "homes" are vastly different from Grand Rapids. Despite these differences, Grand Rapids—and Calvin in particular— is similar to Hong Kong and Singapore, in that it is supportive of diversity and harmony in a heterogeneous community.
My favorite course so far is my Biology 141 course because we looked at complex worldwide issues that affect everyday people.
Johnny's, because it has such a cozy atmosphere, and you are bound to see at least five people you know at any given time.
It is so important to support Calvin because most of us cannot afford the price tag of a quality liberal arts education. Calvin is also so accommodating and supportive of its students through student organizations, free counseling, and tutoring, among many other services.
