Not Just a College Town
Our exploration into the surrounding neighborhoods proves that we are not just Kalamazoo College and Western Michigan. There are many struggling families that may or may not make it out of this recession without having their house condemned... many already have. We are so engrossed in our classes and campus-wide drama and practices of many sorts but we forget sometimes the devastation brought about by the housing market crash and the other economic issues. It has hit frighteningly close to home but until yesterday has felt a million miles away.
