5 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics are a big part of this school and everyone supports them.

Campus Housing: The housing is one of the best parts here on campus. Yes we are considered a commuter school so we dont have very many beds but when you do live on campus all of the housing options are clean and worth the money. You are close to your classes and in the middle of all the fun. Living on campus you meet a ton of friends that live near and around you.

Greek Life: We don't have many chapters here at Saginaw Valley State but we have enough that you can get involved and still have fun. The chapters here don't treat you any different if you are in one or not and they represent their chapters very well by always being kind and professional

Athletics: Saginaw Valley State University is definetly not known for their athletics because they are not the best but when you attend the school all of the students and staff very much appericate the athletics because its a fun experience and they are all working very hard to acheive what they want, like a victory.

Overall Experience: Saginaw Valley State University is a great school with great experiences. Saginaw makes it easy to get involved with a ton of different clubs and activities. You could join a board or even joing forever red. Saginaw has some of the best resources like the academic center of acheivement, the writing center, and career services. All of those things help you with getting your grade to where you want it to be and finding a job for you while your at college or when your out of it.

Greek Life: Its there. Dosent have an impact of the atmosphere on campus.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The School has alot going for it. The Gen Ed classes are very strenuous and many of the professors care less if you succeed. As long as you have the ability to teach yourself the material and not rely on the professor, you should do just fine.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of my professors are good and helpful, but there are a handful that simply don't care if you pass or not. They are simply there to pick up there checks and leave.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Campus career services is unbelievable. Extremely helpful, they will do everything to get you the internship you are looking at.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: By far one of the best features here at SVSU. The housing is an unbelievable amenity.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There is always a crowd at the tailgates for football and hockey games, baseball and softball on the other hand are rarely attended. The sports teams have decent records aside from the football team who won one game last year.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The college is warm and welcoming. Easily manuverable and there are plenty of things to do here. Some professors here are lack luster and the tuition rate seems to rise more and more each year. It could use some overall upgrades.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I personally am not in any sports but I know we have a wide variety of club sports and teams available to join. We have a great club house that is pretty new and an amazing gym that most students take advantage of.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love that SVSU is a smaller school. I am able to make relationships with the staff and really feel at home here. classes are generally smaller sizes so you only have a professor you aren't ever being taught by an assistant.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus when I'm walking in a group. I don't like walking alone, especially at night.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: When coming from high school, I've had no more than 17 students in my class and that's what this school does.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I haven't had a job on campus and I've applied for plenty.

2 College Student

Campus Housing: For me, this past semesters in the dorms were horrific. I'd rather stay off campus and commute. The RA's were no help when it came to problems with roommates.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: So far, this school is okay. When going here, you will have to learn to do thing on your own. The "authority" here isn't really helpful. I've had plenty of issues in my dorm and no one was there to help.

Other than that, the teachers are helpful, that's it.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I have not personally used the sports facilities.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's hard to get to know people, but I think that may be more me than the school.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have a lot of respect for the students and faculty at SVSU. People are extremely outgoing and willing to help you no matter what the problem is. I have met more accepting and helpful people in the four years of attending SVSU than I have my entire life. People here really want the best for you. As for the courses offered, I think there is a large bank of offerings (at least for my major and two minors). I have heard from other students that it is extremely hard to get into their classes with a larger base of students. My experience has been nothing, but perfect.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have been given a lot of help from the Career Services office to create resumes and a LinkedIn account. These have been very helpful when thinking about applying to different internships and careers post college. I have received two incredible internship opportunities and hired for one of them. Both of these internships will help me advance in my career.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: I absolutely LOVE the campus housing. I am soon going into my fifth year of college and I plan on still living on campus. It is so close an convenient to everything on campus: more housing, food, laundry, mail, classes, events, etc. There are many perks and I personally have no issue with the rules on campus. The dorms are absolutely beautiful with many perks-- complete kitchen, spacious rooms, clean bathrooms, doorbells, an incredibly large living area, as well as a dining area. It is a beautiful campus and I will absolutely miss it.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't know much about going greek. I attended one recruitment meeting with a friend, but I did not return because I did not feel like it was for me.
