4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: SVSU gives you the college life, but you can still be close to home.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: SVSU's educational buildings are all connected.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus but if you want the freedom to make noise after 10:30, living off campus is for you

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: As long as the police don't show up it's great, they're alot of fun. There's usually multiple going on at once so once police shut one down you can just go to another.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's mostly just your everyday fast food. Mcdonalds, taco bell, chinese. Nothing really special

4 College Freshman

Administration: As long as you have a cool RA then it should go smoothly. Don't do anything dumb and you'll be fine

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid seems to think since your parents have money automatically you do too and don't need to receive any financial aid. But parents don't wanna spend all their hard earned money on college.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The marketplace was okay at first, but they have the same food basically everyday so it got tiring after awhile

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great as long as you're not too loud. We got knocks on a regular for loudness but we never got fined or anything

4 College Student

Athletics: The Ryder is awesome, it's a great resource for athletes and non athletes alike! We don't have a ton of fan support for football, but an incredible amount for hockey and basketball!

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: The town homes are amazing, I love them! They are right next to campus, cheap, and the workers there are great! Wayside and other apartment complexes are not too far away and pretty decent prices too!

3 College Student

Party Scene: There aren't that many parties because the law enforcement is strict. But the ones that do happen are nice because a lot of students are close because Saginaw is a small school, so the students all know each other!

5 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many different options that are pretty good! They are also very affordable for college students, and are often open pretty late! I am very happy with the off-campus dining!

4 College Student

Administration: It's great from the perspective of the law, but it is a pain when you're a student and receive so many parking tickets and half of your floor has MIPs. They are doing their jobs very well, which is bound to upset the students.

4 College Student

Scholarships: There are a lot opportunities for different scholarships through SVSU, and although it's a little confusing to apply, the options that are given to the students are impressive!

4 College Student

Campus Food: There are always improvements to be made, but compared to so many other college cafeterias, SVSU has done a great job! We have a lot of variety and a lot of options! My biggest concern is the times they are open. If I get out of a 10 pm class, my only option is Papa Johns or the C-store, neither of which are healthy. Albert Es also has very weird hours.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: I lived in a living center, so it was amazing! First year suites are awful though, but my floor was like a family! I started college with 50 friends off the bat!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class size is the best part of SVSU. Depending on which department you can get a mix of good to bad professors.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The quality of the alumni network and recruiting on campus is excellent. The career center is very helpful and there is also a website to help you find any kind of job you are looking for (part-time, full-time, seasonal, etc.).

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are some that are better than others. Quite a few are pretty close to campus, about 10 minutes away and closer.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I cannot wait to move into campus village next semester! The prices are a little high, but it is more affordable than living on campus!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I grew up around here, so I know where to go!

4 College Freshman

Administration: You can never go a day without seeing police on campus, and it makes me feel safe!

Scholarships: I apply for scholarships and I haven't received one.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is not disgusting, for sure. Although I try not to eat anything while at school because everything costs an arm and a leg. The best food on campus is probably at the Doan because it's all you can eat. If I could, I would go there more often. Everywhere else, the food is the same everyday. I just wish food was cheaper.
