Community At Kuyper

Who comes to Kuyper?

Students from various ethnic and denominational backgrounds. From public, private, or homeschooled backgrounds. And they bring with them different perspectives. As a result, the Kuyper community is stronger. Here we celebrate and learn from what we have in common as well as our uniqueness. Here the love of Christ binds us together.

At Kuyper, community is real and deep. It happens inside and outside the classroom. In dorms. During and after Chapel. At the dining hall and at coffee houses in Grand Rapids. On hiking trails and at the lake. And during those times when a friend needs a friend.

Spiritual Life

The Kuyper community will help you grow spiritually as you seek God’s direction for your life. In addition to experiencing mentoring relationships with faculty and staff, you will have opportunities for spiritual growth through chapel, worship services, Bible studies, and campus ministries.

Student Success

Kuyper wants you to succeed. We pair each freshman one-on-one with an upper-class level student who serves as their student success coach. They listen, encourage, and champion them. Student success coaches help students thrive in all aspects of life. Academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.

I was hoping to find a place to belong and to create friendships at Kuyper. I found both—people who cared and loved me in a way that mirrored Christ.
