Grand Valley State University Top Questions

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?


Somewhat. The majority of students here do coast through this college, and take the easier classes. That's a reflection of the students here though--not GVSU. You can find some really great people here if you're willing to look. There are a lot of 'jocks' though, and we are in conservative West Michigan.


The majority of students do still seem to be in that preppy-sporty high school phase. However, there is a very good chance that you will find some people you will like, if that's not your thing. Personally, I'm not preppy/athletic, but I found some people. It is more difficult though. GVSU is very sporty. Plus, it's not super difficult to get in here, so some people aren't the brightest I suppose.
