grand valley is a great school, it is very easy to get connected and find a community. the professors are awesome and want to help you succeed and find your purpose in life. they offer lots of extra curricular activities to keep you involved, in shape, socialized, and to be the best person you can be.
Rachel from Ionia, MI
due to its closed campus layout and can do attitude from staff and students alike, grand valley state university gives resonates with an energizing feel of a small community with big dreams. having just celebrated its fiftieth anniversary, which is still fairly young for a university, gvsu is still looking to grow and improve itself; in this way, each student attending grand valley and the university itself are growing each year. this being said, grand valley is an inspiring atmosphere to be a part of and i would recommend it to anyone who is considering taking the next step in furthering their education.
