Student & Graduate Reviews

"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."

"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."
