In Their Own Words
Today, three weeks after school started, we are hearing very encouraging reports from our son; we even sense maturity in the way he responds to our emails and over the phone. I am sure that as he moves on, he will grow in knowledge and spiritual depth and his personal testimony would encourage many more to consider Calvin for their undergraduate studies.” Calvin parent (Egypt)
We were very pleased in particular with the way our son's biology professors identified him very early on and encouraged his interest in research and gave him much valuable research exposure that will continue to prove beneficial in the future. He also appreciated being encouraged to relate his studies in science to his Christian faith. Perhaps what we appreciate most about Calvin is the university's appreciation of what our sons, together with the other African students, bring to the university as African Christians in a North American Christian environment.” Calvin parent (Ghana)
Calvin did a lot to provide information and details on all the processes involved ... handling the immigration paper work before and after admission, providing some funding ... organizing the transport and welcome from the Grand Rapids airport to Calvin University. I am already recommending Calvin University to my friends for their sons and daughters. I was particularly impressed about the fact that many of your graduates proceed to such schools as Harvard to pursue higher qualifications. Congratulations!” Calvin parent (Kenya)
More than anything else we were impressed by Calvin's spiritual focus-the conscious and evident commitment of the staff to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Christian perspective in teaching and learning, the many opportunities for children to explore their relationship with the Lord, and Calvin's attitude that instead of religion being forced down their throats, young people must learn to exercise and own their faith at their own levels and pace.” Calvin parent (India)
