While some students who are not used to the wonderful weather changes in Michigan complain, most students at Grand Valley get along just fine. Walking on campus takes 10 minutes from one end to the other, so no matter how cold or rainy it is, you are not outside for long. Also, because buses run so frequently, some students will take the bus from one end of campus to the other—this is not frowned upon!
With the weather varying from one day to another, it is also nice to have multiple plans for your day. If it's raining, instead of going to the nearby beach, head downtown for some indoor shopping or events! In the winter, the snow is beautiful, and after the first spring rain, it is relatively dry on campus.
