What is Rangeela?

Since 1996, Rangeela, Calvin's annual international student variety show, has been one of the highlights of the college calendar. Calvin has the 5th largest international student population of any liberal arts college in the USA—as well as all of Michigan—and Rangeela, a pageant of costume, music, rhythm, and drama, is that community's gift to both Calvin and the community beyond the college.

Rangeela (Hindi for “colorful”) is put together by a committee of international students, supported by the International Student Development Office. It consistently sells out two consecutive nights each year in the Fine Arts Center.
