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!!

    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.
