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!!

    SVSU has an amazing and beautiful canpus. Not to mention, it has a ton of food places and it's small enough to feel at home, but big enough to see new faces all the time. It's also has amazing nursing and engineering programs.

    Saginaw Valley State is amazing. It's small enough that it's easy to navigate, but big enough that you will always be seeing new faces and meeting new people. Saginaw Valley has successfully created a positive and enriched environment for students and I wouldn't choose to be anywhere else.

    I have seen around the campus and it is gorgeous. I would highly recommend this campus to anyone looking for a university yet still small enough where the teachers know you by name. Great school!

    Saginaw Valley is a beautiful, small campus that has everything to offer that a large university does without the large crowds. Class sizes are small and professors take the time to get to know their students making you more than just a number. There is something for everyone on campus and it once you are there it is the greatest home away from home.

    SVSU is a very clean, updated, and quiet college. It's gym is amazing, and the new field house is beautiful. The classroom sizes are great, but there's not much to do on the weekends.

    Saginaw Valley is the perfect size for me. I came from a high school with a graduating class of about one hundred students. The ratio of students to professors is very beneficial to my learning, with about 20 students to one professor.
