First-year opportunities at
Calvin University
So, what can I do in my first year at Calvin?

In short? A lot.

Your classes will take up a lot of time—that’s no surprise. But what you choose to do in the gaps between classes is important too. Start building your résumé with experiences that set you apart. Dive deeply into an area that you’re passionate about. And discover how you can turn your time at university into the adventure you know it can be.
