    Be sure to apply early. Grand Valley is an attractive school for up and coming scholars, making it difficult to be accepted if you're not at the top of the grid. My advice is to take all the money you can - GVSU is an expensive school, but it is definitely worth it.

    I encourage students to take every opportunity they can to gain new experiences by joining clubs or organizations, participating in volunteer events, becoming part of a team, or signing up for study abroad. College is the time for figuring out who you are, so I think you should take advantage of all the great resources that Grand Valley offers.

    Something to be bluntly aware of about Grand Valley is there is a great deal of snow in the winter and it gets very cold, so having a nice air of boots and a cozy winter coat is a must if attending Grand Valley. Something else to be aware of is there are two campuses, one in Allendale and one in Grand Rapids, so you could have a mix of classes in the two areas and that can get a little messy. Despite these small prices to pay, both campuses are beautiful, rain or shine, or snow.

    Use the resources the university offers, like math and science tutoring rooms. Lakerjobs also has a lot of campus jobs, and I personally loved working on campus. Enjoy your time at GV, and befriend your professors!
