WordPress

WordPress is the software used to manage some of the main Kalamazoo College websites (such as "Admission" and "Giving to K").

WordPress sites are also available to our faculty & staff for personal or professional use, hosted at blogs.kzoo.edu. Contact webservices@kzoo.edu to request your own space today!
