My experience at Grand Valley State University has bee amazing. This may be my first semester but nothing has gone wrong. The classes sizes are very small for a university of this size. The faculty is extremely helpful and always willing to help where ever possible. The facilities are very clean and modern. I have nothing that I would change about this school beside looking into expanding to a broader sense of the programs they offer.

I love how easy to use Niche is! There is such a broad scope of scholarships available to students. Since Niche offers SO many scholarships you would think it would be difficult to find one that fits your qualifications...wrong! Using the various filters it was fast and easy for me to find scholarships that fit my area of study and my current standing as a post grad. There are not many scholarships out there for recent alumni, but Niche is always my first place to check for them!
