Since starting a VCSU I have felt very accepted. The teachers at this school are so helpful whenever a person needs them. I can email my teacher at 10pm and they answer by 10:30. Not only are the teacher the best but finding a group of friends on campus is very easy. It is not like high school where there are cliques everyone says hi to everyone. To sum up this college I would say, "we are a family growing together."

My overall experience at Valley City State University has been very good so far. Quite a few of my family are alumni from Valley City State University and have had great experiences from VCSU. They talk highly of VCSU and feel that they have received a good education. I really like the small size and the feeling of a small community where you are a name and not a number. It is a college where it is affordable and most professors seem to care about you and if you are in class of not. My favorite experiences are it has been easy to make true friends, be involved, and not feel overwhelmed with the size. If I would have to choose again I still would stick with VCSU because it is a great school.
