Grand Valley is the ideal university. It is not too big and not too small. For a D2 school, our sports are still highly competitive and entertaining to watch. Our teams are the kind you can be proud to support. Students are also proud to support the welcoming nature of our school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Choosing to attend GV was easily the best decision I have ever made. When choosing a college I had a good handful of options, but none of my options really stuck out as "the one", so on a whim, I chose Central Michigan University. However, soon after I decided to attend CMU I visited GV and fell in love with the campus, attending GV was now a must. Despite my first year of college being cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I definitely made the right decision. GV's student life is terrific and almost everyone is involved in some sort of club or organization. For the most part, I felt very comfortable with all of my professors and overall engaged with all of my classes. If you are looking for a smaller campus with a big campus feel, GV is definitely the place for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoyed the Undergrad Social Work program. The faulty were so knowledgeable and always willing to go the extra mile to help us succeed. I found a really great community of other students while in the program as well. I was able to make lots of like minded friends who are passionate about the things I am passionate about and it has been fantastic for fostering insightful and thought provoking conversations and learning experiences.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am looking forward to going to this school in the fall. It appears to have a great balance of academics, campus life, activities and sports. There are over 400 different campus groups to join so there will be something for everyone to do. The dorm rooms seem very livable and the dorms appear very safe.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Grand Valley is a wonderful school for someone who is looking for opportunities, but also does not want to be drowned in a huge school. Campus is beautiful and very kind to new people trying to get around. There are various food options and all living centers are filled with people wanting to meet new friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love being at Grand Valley State University. I feel safe on campus at all times, and when I am out and about in the surrounding areas. There are plenty of sports to join, as well as club sports, club activities, and more. There are many job opportunities for students on and off campus, which I believe is very important. Both on and off campus housing is modern and comfortable, however, it can be quite pricey. Campus food is by no means bad, but there could be improvments. I personally would enjoy healtier options. The professors and other faculty are easy to get a ahold of when help is needed, and for the most part, they are helpful and friendly. They also seem very knowledgable about the subjects they teach, so I feel confident entrusting them to educate me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Valley State University was my first choice out of High School and my first application for admittance. After touring multiple Universities, Grand Valley is still my first choice. The benefits offered by GVSU have not been found elsewhere and I am thrilled to have been accepted for Fall 2020. To be completely honest, after being accepted into Purdue University, I thought GVSU would not compare. I am more than thrilled to say that Grand Valley State University offered me as much academically in my chosen field and met my personal ambitions far greater than PU. Grand Valley should be proud of the University it has become and I eagerly await becoming a Laker.
