Grand Valley State University Top Questions

What kind of person should not attend Grand Valley State University?


Grand Valley is a place for everyone. There are so many majors offered, and so many clubs available, any type of person can find their place at this university.


I have seen all types of people attend this school, but one's I would mostly not suggest are those that are looking for a strict party school. Grand Valley State does a very good job of policing on and off of campus and patrolling all parties and events that go on.


If you are a person who is not a fan of meeting amazing new people or a beautiful friendly campus then Grand Valley State University is not for you. Everyone should have an open mind to trying new things and meeting new people.


Students who are looking to fly under the radar and minimize their prescence on campus during their college career, with the exception of required course work and attendance, should no atten this school.


A person who even thinks that they may want a social life should not attend Grand Valley.


Anyone looking for a big city or party type of environment probably would not be as at home at Grand Valley as I am. It is fairly close to Grand Rapids, but its far enough away that it has such a country and calm feel to it. This school is not crazy or overfilled with parties, so I think that anyone looking for that in a school would not be as happy here.


The kind of person who isn't looking for community should not attend this school. Grand Valley stresses the importance of fellowship and there are an endless supply of organizations on campus. Also, someone who isn't interested in a well-rounded, liberal education should find another university, since Grand Valley believes in people who are educated in more than one specific area.


I honestly think anyone could attend this school. We have a dry campus, which means that alcohol is prohibited. However, if you're into the party scene there are off-campus parties. There's something for everyone to do at Grand Valley. As long as you don't mind the cold, snow, or taking a slightly long bus ride to Grand Rapids when necessary, then this school is good for you.


Someone who is only interested in college for partying. A close-minded individual who is not academically motivated or career-driven should not attend Grand Valley.


The type of person who shouldn't attend this school is someone who's expectations of college are to party. Grand Valley is a dry campus, and partying is not a staple of the college.
