SVSU is a great university. I came from a small town and didn't have any trouble adjusting to college life. The class sizes are small, the professors work with you and help you understand the material, the campus is always growing, and not to mention, the housing is fantastic! Some of the best in Michigan! SVSU also offers many scholarships to students and financial aid as well. Overall, it is great to be a cardinal!!

    Friendly environment that keeps the students interested in furthering their education. The university is like a second family with multiple opportunities for the students to get involved with the school and fellow class mates. I would consider SVSU as a top of the line university that should rank with the top ten for educational achievement and for qualified faculty.
