college is simply overpriced (period). however, comparatively speaking, gvsu offers a great value in michigan. safe campus, newer facilities, beautiful setting, bus services into grand rapids (great mi city), many major programs, awesome honor college value, competitive sports teams w/o the over the top emphasis on sports, good merit scholarships, and a solid school reputation. gvsu is a great option for someone looking to get the most value for their college buck.
