Grand Valley is a school with very good administration, a very beautiful campus, and a great way of operating. The professors here are not only good educators, they are good people. Everything on campus is very nice and new and top notch (as far as college campuses go). My one complaint is the social atmosphere on campus. Nearly every student goes home on weekends, and a majority of upperclassmen commute, leaving the campus barren, and the school spirit and social scene low. Otherwise, great school.

I just recently started here at Grand Valley State University, and the experience so far has been pretty good. The school is a great atmosphere and the classes are great. Parties aren't the best if that is what you are looking for.

I am new to niche. So far it's been a great experience. I have found easy ways to find scholarships to help pay for school plus also meet people who use niche as well
