It's very positive to be in my major, I feel as though there is a small enough group of us that we can be close-knit and help each other along. Also, the workload isn't unbearable and the professors are great.

The parking fee is minimal (much less than expected) and I have yet to not find a spot and I never walk more than 100 yards or so.

Because I need to take the highway to get to Kuyper it can sometimes be difficult to get there in a reasonable amount of time in the winter, both because the road conditions can be poor and because of traffic through Grand Rapids.

There is hardly any public transportation available to Kuyper students, but it is not necessary because of the small size of the school.

Each of the dorm buildings has a community area that students can hang out, cook or study in. The pool table is a popular accommodation. Each dorm building also has its own lab with a few computers and printer, and all you need to use the laundry room is your own soap. The community atmosphere is casual, friendly and fun.

The Film and Digital Media major (a co-operative program with nearby Cornerstone University) has begun to open my eyes to the many ways and methods by which the media (print, radio, movies, news, TV etc.) often subtly but powerfully influence a person’s life, as they interact with and are exposed to them. A student in the program learns and practices how to use them to create and share messages in powerful visual ways; has opportunity to conduct their own research on select media and influence; and more.

I had a lot of stress and many incomplete, undone or late assignments due to trying to do everything perfect. I found it hard to understand that other students got their work done and still had time to enjoy things. Going to professors to talk helped me to better understand their expectations, and the writing center helped me greatly with papers. The on-campus counseling for students also helped me through. Finally, several wise and seasoned students (upperclassmen and RA’s especially) provided valuable insight, encouragement, and some quality mentorship.
In summary, the work is doable; if a student struggles, help is there, if they go to the right places.

Kuyper accommodates both hard work and needed rest very well. Former Kuyper students say they come back to the Zondervan Library because of its’ high quality staff; wonderful librarians are ready to “serve you.” The writing center and many electronic and hardcopy resources also aid in and enrich research and writing. Outside of the library, Kuyper’s wooded surroundings, chapel and various in/outdoor sitting areas help students re-zone and ease stress.

Grand Rapids and its' surrounding areas is full of all kinds of opportunities. If you're looking for entertainment, there's plenty to do such as movies & restaurants, festivals, the zoo etc. Grocery stores, supermarkets and ethnic shopping centers are plentiful. There are also plenty of places to look if you need a job (many of which post positions on the internet), and many ministries if you're interested in volunteering. Grand Rapids is a cool place to be!

There is very little (if any) drug or alcohol activity on campus at Kuyper, aside from smoking, which is not much and kept out of main campus areas. To my knowledge, there is no drug or alcohol usage.

The parking situation is pretty good. A small campus, lots are distributed around the whole school. Staying ticket-free is pretty easy as long as you follow the parking regulations. Some primary tips are: 1) clearly and properly display your permit; 2) know where your permit type allows you to park; 3) don’t park in the lots at night where it’s restricted (times are given); and 4) keep your bumper clear of the sidewalk curb in winter (for snow blowers). Campus security should tell you all you need to know, and they're quite friendly and helpful if you have any questions.

I have been given a few financial aid scholarships and loans. However they fail to let you know some of the scholarships you may qualify for and so there is a lack in communication of available scholarships.

The food is alright in the cafeteria... although they make a lot of fried food so it is not very healthy. They do have soup, salad, and a sandwich cart available at almost every meal. There are also a few restaurants withing 5 minutes driving distance

Guys & Girls:

There arent that many students on campus and do there is usually enough parking spaces... but occasionally it is hard to find ones by the dorms

The dining hall food is delicious. However, like most colleges, it does get tiring and it is nice to make your own food too. Get a smaller meal plan after freshman year so you can make your own healthier meals.

As the campus is so small, we don't have any specific transportation for on campus. However, the public bus system in Grand Rapids is very helpful and people are willing to let you borrow their cars or take you places.

One new thing about Kuyper that is kind of unique is Scholar Day - and event that is held at the end of each semester in which presenters talk about and discuss projects that they have worked on, papers they have written, and so many other awesome things related to scholarship. One semester is dedicated to student scholarship, while another is for faculty scholarship. It's a great opportunity to gather together as a community and be excited about scholarship.
College Junior 2013-05-29T18:27:03Z
The students and staff are open to communicate with all races. Everyone is open to their own opinion.
College Senior 2013-05-29T18:25:33Z
Kuyper has a wonderful student center and the campus is beautiful, but as an off-campus student I have not experienced "student life" on campus very much. Part of this is to do with the fact that I go to school full-time and work a full-time job across town. From what I can tell, on-campus students are more involved on campus, but the off-campus community does seem to be lacking.
College Junior 2013-05-29T18:23:09Z
Many students get together with their group of friends and hangout in the sun, dorms or library. I wish the students would reach out to more students then the same groups they hang with.

I am an English major, and I have been very pleased with the program thus far. The professors that teach the main courses are well qualified and challenge students to dig deeper than surface interpretations of the reading. The workload can get a bit overwhelming at times, but nothing impossible.
The best part about the English program at Kuyper is that it requires two semesters of internships, a requirement that I was unable to find at the other schools I had considered. It's nice to know that this program has a career path in mind.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
