What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
Use your resources. If you're struggling or worried about struggling, there are lots of FREE resources such as the Writing Center for help with papers, the Center for Academic Achievement for tutoring in subjects, and so much more!
Get involved. It's hard to get the motivation to do it, and can seem pretty scary to do it. But it's a great way to network and develop friendships that will last throughout your college experience. (And it could look good on a resume, too!) Involvement has been my favorite part of the academic experience.
Tyler from Croswell, MI
Get involved, go to events especially when free t-shirts are offered, take your time walking to places because you will always see someone you know, go to sports events, enjoy yourself.
Allison from Marlette, MI
Saginaw Valley State University is a great university. SVSU has so much to offer. Theres a variety of things that you can get involved in and make yourself known. The campus is very well kept together and small enough for you to stay inside during the winter. The atmosphere of SVSU is very friendly. You can easily make friends and don't have to worry about going anywhere alone. The class sizes are just like high school with an average size of 30 students. If you aren't understanding the material feel free to contact your professor or even get a tutor. I will advise if you are having difficulty to get assistance immediately. Everything on campus is for you to use so take advantage of all the resources around you.
Jasmine from Detroit, MI
Apply early and decide early. You will get more benefits if you decide to go there early. Also you can get a chance at campus scholarships if you make the decision fast. Also use the resources at school you can get 400 free prints and in college you need to print almost everything. The library is great, as well as the math and writing centers.
Rachel from Bay City, MI
Make sure to tour the campus and apply for every scholarship you can find, get to know the campus and the people. Make sure it is a good fit.
M
Do not skip a class unless you are really sick and always let the professor know you wont be there so that they can get you the notes. Make atleast one friend in every class so that if you do miss you can get notes and so you have a study buddy, Go to office hours and ask for extra credit professors do understand that you have other classes.
Lauren from Byron, MI
If you apply during your campus tour, you will save the admittance fee.
from elkton, MI
Small campus atmosphere but really a medium sized college. Everything is within walking distance.
K from Waterford, MI
Tour the campus.
See what they have to offer.
Look at the population and cost of living and see how the living situation is.
Then look at the programs, and accreditations.
Samantha from Detroit, MI
Students need to look at different universities first before they make a final decision. A medium size university might seem great at first but the idea can change. Tour campuses first before making a final decision on which university a student wants to attend. If a prospective student knows what career they want to get into then search for a college that offers the career. Universities have higher expectations and standards for students to work hard, expect to lose sleep, have to be in control and independent of their schedule, always carry a planner around, and join at least one group on campus but not more than two. Always keep in mind that school comes first and extracurricular activities come second.
