What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Valley is truly a beautiful campus. We probably have some of the best on campus housing choices at a Michigan College. And off campus choices are plentiful too. Courses can be hard but most professors are willing to go out of their way to see you succeed. Definitely need better on campus food choices but other than that I think its a great place to go to school. Spring and fall are beautiful, but winters can be cold and snowy with lake effect snow making the campus quite cold.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is that Grand Valley is a great school. I have learned so much from this University as well as making many new friends. Lots of people say that the food isn't always the greatest, but in reality I think it is only because we eat the same food everyday and just get sick of the same things. Therefore, me and my friends would go out to eat somewhere near by every now and then, so we can get a taste of something 'new'.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Valley State University is a great school. There is an event happening almost every day or night, giving students and staff multiple opportunities to get involved. The number of clubs and extracurricular activities also allow people to step out of their comfort zones and meet others they may not met otherwise. The average sized classroom is great and the professors want to help you succeed. There are various help resources for classwork and other things you may need help with.

Wonderful school with great opportunities for students of all ages. The campus is beautifully maintained and everything is a short walk away. The professors are invested in their students’ education and are usually available to help. GVSU has a wide range of majors to study.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a nice school for students who want to go into the medical field, but don't want to go to a super competitive school. There are a lot of general education credits that you have to take to graduate, which can end up holding you back for several years. Most people seem to stay there for 5 or 6 years just to earn an undergraduate degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, I loved it there. There are flaws in every school but it was one of the best choices that I made. I loved that it felt like it's own little community but we had downtown Grand Rapids only 20 minutes away to get the city feel. They had a lot of on-campus housing choices, I only lived on-campus my freshman year (I wanted to save some money) and I loved it. I chose the apartment style (we had a small kitchenette in our room) and it was much bigger than I pictured. They really work hard to find someone you want to live with and moving rooms, while isn't encouraged, is not super difficult to do. The food on campus was not great but as the years went by they started to add more chain restaurants (that take your meal plan) which made it better. The class sizes and the availability of professors was what I liked most. I enjoyed that most of my classes were not over 25. If I had a lecture it was usually combined with a smaller discussion course to really get that one on one time with the professor and other students. They have a lot of options and are willing to help with almost anything you can think of. Many of my professors just want to help in anyway they can. They want you to succeed so often they would want us to just come talk to them if we ever had any problems whether it was homework or emotional. The connections I was able to make will last me a lifetime. While we aren't a division one school I love how passionate our players are and I personally loved our game day atmosphere. The amount of extracurricular organizations that we have as well is large and they open up a lot of opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My life has become so much better since I started at Grand Valley State University. The atmosphere of the school is better than any other college campus I have attended, and I would absolutely recommend this school to anyone looking at a four year university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it. I was dead set on Wayne State before I toured this campus, and after I did, there was absolutely no other option for me. The campus is wonderful, they offer so many classes for whatever you’re interested in, and there are so many sources for support, counseling, and other help. I met my best friend here. It’s an all around wonderful school.
