Grand Valley State University Reviews
This institution is a perfect fit for commuter students, adult learners, international students, and Michigan residents to receive an affordable, liberal education. The connections I made at Grand Valley have helped me tremendously in graduate school and the workforce.
My degree program was excellent, however there were plenty of students within my degree problem who did not have the same positive experience. As with many programs, it really depends on the classes you choose to take. I consistently took classes with a professor that had a reputation for being tough, and that made me learn so much more than many of my peers. Her instruction made me more prepared for my current graduate studies. So to sum it up, it is what you make of it.
Grand Valley State University is an up and coming university. It had the feel of a big time university but was very intimate and class room sizes weren't to much so you weren't able to speak with the professor. Every year I was there, GVSU was always under construction. It was a growing university with endless potential and has the ability to tailor to student's major.
Overall I think the university is great! The president is very involved with the campus and pushes his faculty to be involved and provide the best for their students. There are plenty of free resources for student to succeed, from the writing center, to tutoring, and academic advising. My degree is a degree that you should definitely go into knowing you should use it for grad school. I currently am back in school for Public Health and GVSU did a great job preparing me for this program. I highly recommend this school.
GVSU taught me the knowledge I needed to succeed, but more importantly the courses and professors prepared me to succeed at the professional level.
This school was the perfect place for me. It had a wonderful staff and a beautiful campus. There rec center was incredible. I didn't realize how good we had it until going to other schools. It was a great place to attend undergrad. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.
It is a small town college that has grown quite significantly. Most people in my area end up going to that school. Overall it is a good quality college
Very nice campus, small town college feel with wide array of majors. Very helpful staff and faculty.
The campus climate at GVSU can be described as honest, supportive and most definitely encouraging. I finished my undergraduate degree there and will soon pursue my graduate degree . I recommend this institution to anyone looking for handfuls of new opportunities! With its main campus in Allendale, MI, the accessibility to Grand Rapids and the Lakeshore couldn't be better for a student looking for professional experience and a little bit of free time.
Its a great option, among many, if further schooling is right for you.
