The professors are very knowledgeable and make time to help you if you don't understand or just have a question. Each class I take regarding my major just makes me want to learn more! Even the other classes are interesting! You can sign up for a tutor for free if you need more help. They are really nice. For papers of all kinds, you can take it to the writing center for suggestions, help, reference work, for free as well.

    GVSU has a beautiful modern campus. The residence halls are very nice, most even have their own bathroom (freshman included). Everyone on campus is super nice including all of the staff!

    The academic aspect of GVSU is challenging yet manageable. The food could be better, but the people are friendly. Professors are always willing to help, in my experience.

    Grand Valley has some excellent faculty, and be sure to take advantage of resources like office hours and the math lab. Campus can be hectic at times, and parking can be a hassle, but overall I am definitely satisfied with my choice to transfer to GVSU. I will be graduating in 2016, and may look into grad school with GVSU also.
