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.

    A surprisingly beautiful campus, as one wouldn't know that strictly from pictures of the place. The people here are nice and willing to make you feel at home.

    Being a transfer student here was overwhelming. It takes a while to get accustomed to the resources available. Don't be afraid to ask questions because it's easy to get lost.

    Being a transfer student, I was a little nervous about attending such a pristine university, but I have felt nothing but love and support from my fellow Lakers. GV has a great Bio program with professors who really care about your education. I am so proud to call myself a Laker!

    Grand Valley State is one of the most beautiful campuses inside and out. Not only am I attracted to the nature that surrounds me, but the student-faculty relationship is like no other. Students here care about the importance of their studies and the faculty helps students reach their highest potentials.

    An amazing school with a variety of resources for every student. For the most part, the faculty and staff really cares about the students and their individual success. Also, the campus is the most beautiful I have ever seen (even those from other schools agree).

    Grand Valley is a huge college, but still able to make your experience feel at home and personal. The food options could be better, but an easy trip to Meijer on the 50 can fix that. The faculty and your advisors really do care about you.
