What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it so much. I’m so excited to attend next fall, the campus is beautiful and I definitely would recommend it to other seniors or people that are interested in going to college. I have friends that are there right now and can’t tell me anything bad about the campus and they love it so much!

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Valley is a very modern and rapidly growing university. The campus is split into two main locations in Allendale and several buildings throughout Grand Rapids. This expands the overall culture of the school and allows for many opportunities outside of school being so close to the city. Everyone is very friendly and it is a known characteristic that students from Grand Valley always hold the doors open for each other. The campus is very safe with campus PD everywhere and easily accessible to walk you home if you do not feel safe for whatever reason. There are also regular crossing guards every day to make sure everyone gets to and from class safely. The athletics for a D2 school are very important to the university and most teams are very well ranked as well. Class sizes are small enough for the professors to know you by name and for you to get to know your classmates as well. The campus is very modern with new buildings being added almost every semester. Overall, I love Grand Valley and would not have traded my college experience here so far for any other.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Valley has been an amazing experience for me. It has gone above and beyond what I expected. I remember my first week, when we had transitions. One of the speakers shared about “being ugly” and not just going along with everyone but working towards your future for your own reasons and standing by your reasons. Grand Vally State University has made an environment for students of all to feel confident in “being ugly”.
