    I really like it here although I've had a couple of troubles here and there, but you'll find them at any college. Oh and this is random, but Grand View loves to give free shirts out at nearly every thing. At our Christmas concert this year by Six Appeal, we got these free cute little mugs with attached spoons and hot chocolate and peppermint candies. Overall, I really like it here.

    Grand View can be pricey but they award a lot of scholarships and they help families work out the financial kinks. My family and I made an appointment with them and they answered every question we had.

    GVU is a fairly expensive school compared to the Regents schools, but its worth every dime. The professors are some of the best out there!
