Grand View an amazing university. The people are great, the professors are great, and the community is a great one to be a part of. The campus is small so walking from class to class is very accessible and manageable. The class sizes are typically very small, and the professors work very hard to get to know each student and do everything they can to help your learning experience.
Grand View is a great school, all the teachers and students are very kind and helpful. I feel when I graduate I will leave with a very good education. The facility is well taken care of and very nice, I know i can count on my professors if i need them. Overall its a great university.
Grand View is a safe environment that we are encouraged to learn and express ourselves. Most of us are in sports as extra incentives to stay in school and do well. Most times in our campus life activities we have staff involved because we are encouraged to develop good relationships with adults on campus so we would feel comfortable talking to them if we ever needed to.
It is a very diverse community and small campus. I enjoy the short walks from building to building, although I am already a junior, it is great having to stay in one building for my major classes and that building is also right next to the cafe. It is pretty awesome I would say.

Make sure you start early when looking at different schools. Many families rush into this process and find out later on that this was not what they were expecting/wanting for education. Also, make sure to really think about what you would like to do every day of your life, there are times I still wonder. Go to the school for you, not anyone else.
this for college in general not my school, just that i would have to study more. i have nothing negaitve to say about Grand View College.
Taking classes at night mainly, I didn't feel that I had an advisor to help me thru the processes. That I was on my own a lot of the time.
My college, Walden University, is an online school providing many degrees opportunities for undergraduates who want to achieve an higher education.
My classmates at Grand View University are not only some of the most open minded people I have ever met, but are also some of the most dedicated to getting the most out of their educational experience.
I am able to run cross country and track and be a nursing major.
The food. It is either undercooked, over cooked, or old. Any way you put it, the food is bad.
One should attend this school if they want to take advantage of the opportunities that the city of Des Moines has to offer. One should attend this school if they like the small school setting or if they would like to play a sport at the college level.
Its fun.. The people here are really nice and the classes aren't that hard, as long as you pay attention and do your work you will be fine.
We are best known for getting out into the comunity. Whether is be students volunteeing from nursing, or visiting highschoolers and teching them what they should be looking for, to the visit days or multicultural days., and what living in Des Moines has helped our school so much with is helping us achieve 100 percent job inturns while in college and job placement.
The small class sizes make professors very approachable and it is eaiser to ask questions during class.
