Ranked as the most diverse college in the Midwest by U.S. News & World Report, Calumet College of St. Joseph has historically been a college of opportunity for first-generation students, non-traditional students, and other individuals for whom the idea of “going away” to school was impossible.

        The athletics program, known as the Crimson Wave, attracts students from across the state of Indiana, the United States, and internationally. The college has developed 20 athletic teams for men and women and is competitive in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference of the NAIA. Our athletics program has been recognized by the NAIA as a Champions of Character program. Our student-athletes have been recognized for their academic and athletic endeavors by being named All Conference and All Americans.

        Located in a vibrant urban setting, the college is a thirty-minute drive from downtown Chicago and a short walk from Lake Michigan’s beaches and is surrounded by quaint ethnic neighborhoods and major industrial facilities. From this community, the college derives its urban mission of social justice and practices regional stewardship.

        While based on liberal arts principles, the college offers many professional programs that appeal to the practical needs of its diverse student body.

        Blending a career-oriented curriculum with the values of a Catholic education, the college imbues graduates with outstanding academic preparation, high ethical standards, and strong concepts of personal responsibility.
