Fridays at Calvin

Students walking towards the Chapel patio.

“Yeah, this feels like home.” That’s what we hear again and again on Fridays. And we can’t wait for you to experience that feeling too.

Fridays at Calvin is where you’ll truly discover Calvin—meet students and profs, worship in chapel, and explore our beautiful campus.

Fridays at Calvin Plus is an extended-stay opportunity. You’ll get the full Fridays at Calvin experience, plus you’ll have the option to stay overnight in the dorms.
