What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
Grand Valley is a really cool school! Homeschooled all my life, I arrived here and felt instantly accepted and comfortable. The Christian groups on campus are wonderfully diverse and all very welcoming. Nice profs, good learning, beautiful campus, lots to do, great food, and nice dorms! This is definitely a 5-star school!

GVSU has not only the most beautiful, warm and welcoming campus I have seen (from visiting eight schools in total as a high school senior), it is truly a Home away from Home. As any other university, the student gets what they give in to the program, and in to their life on campus. I have absolutely no regrets, and am completely happy with the decision to live on campus, and be involved.
