What is your overall opinion of this school?

Let's just say, Laker for a Lifetime! I am going back for my Master's and feel very confident that I will be supported by staff and faculty. I began my college experience with wanting to go to Michigan State University. However, Grand Valley was closer and many of my friends from high school were already in there first year and were moderately successful. I felt more confident that I could succeed there after learning of the smaller class sizes and the opportunity for student research.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going to Grand Valley State was truly one of the best decisions I have made. It is a big school and you get that feeling on the weekends but also it feels individualized towards each student. All of the staff that I have encountered values your time and will play an important role in helping you succeed and grow in your future if you let them. There is truly something for everyone to get involved in, Grand Valley really makes you feel comfortable and at home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Valley State University has a gorgeous campus and many useful facilities. I am particularly fond of the Mary Idema Pew Library, which is a hot spot for student activity. GVSU also has an awesome honors program that I am a member of. The honors college offers many opportunities for students to engage in intellectually stimulating conversation and to form communities together. However, the dorms tend to be very quiet and boring because students are busy studying in their dorms so they don't socialize much. All of the professors I have had so far have been great and have offered many opportunities for students to ask questions outside of class. When it comes to food, GVSU doesn't have the best selection. Many of the food offered there are sub par and don't have much variety. Overall, GVSU is a great university that I would recommend to just about anyone and learning there so far has been a very enjoyable experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Grand Valley State University! From the moment I stepped on campus, I knew that this was the school for me. The people are friendly, and the academics are great. I have been challenged academically, while also being provided opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities and volunteering opportunities. There is so much to do at Grand Valley, and I feel that I have grown as a person since I started attending college here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While the social scene isn’t as noteworthy as ASU’s or ‘Bama’s (rolltide!), and the academic scene is no ivy league comparison, Grand Valley still ranks pretty high in all the categories. It is perfectly located between Grand Rapids and Lake Michigan, allowing for city days and beach days alike. The football season is the best, plus tickets are free for students! The classes and professors are amazing. There is a club or organization for just about anyone out there. And, don’t even get me started on campus dining (two words - Laker Bowl). The food is surprisingly great! To top it all off, Grand Valley even offers a variety of scholarships to make it affordable to attend. Grand Valley is an exciting place to attend college, but isn’t overwhelming like some large universities could be. It’s the perfect place for you to grow and find out who you are in your precious college years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

GVSU is a great university that help me figure out the kind of person that I wanted to be as well as my overall passion. The president of the university was extremely active and easily approachable. I had at least three conversations with him at random times. There isn't a single moment where I regret my decision on attending GVSU. As we it was said, I am a Laker for a LIFETIME!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grand Valley State University has been very fun and inviting for me. As for student life, there are various clubs I have to choose from (over 360 clubs available. The campus is academic-oriented, with study areas available within each and every building. Teachers set aside time to talk with students about issues with assignments as well as coursework, or merely general questions. I believe this is a great school to attend both academically and socially.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I somewhat enjoy this university. I personally wish that there were reoccurring here but unfortunately not. I also wish that the some of the faculty were nicer. One of the better sides of Grand Valley are the buildings and sports team. We are usually the champions of Division II sports and the buildings area always being renovated. Grand Valley is a great university to go to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

it is an amazing up and coming school. I have lived so close to grand valley for a long time and never thought of it as a college that I wanted to go to until I actually went and toured. They have amazing opportunities for their study abroad program and off campus housing.
