Great science program with personable professors. Not a school for mathematics.

Taylor Y 4/21/2016

Saginaw Valley is a great university. It is small enough to still have that college feel but not too small where you know everyone. Professors are helpful for the most part and the campus is great. The campus is what really attracted me to SVSU. Also, it was only 1.5 hours from my home.
