Grand View University Reviews
The overall atmosphere of the campus radiates friendliness! It has a sense of comfort while being away from home. The staff are super willing to help out in anyway to help with your personal success. The accessible resources on campus are super helpful, which can range from personal need to school need. I’m addition to the staff, all of the students on campus are friendly and inviting! There’s never any hesitation to talk to anyone or even ask questions. There’s a lot of cultural involvement at Garnd View including that of an organization from one of the staff members. Aside from the academic side of campus and the resources, the dormitory aspect of campus is more of the hangout place. While it is an area to get work done, it’s the spot at the end of the day for everyone to hang out, take naps, and just relax.
Grand View University helped me discover my future career, which has been the most valuable thing I have gotten out of college! Without GV, I would be headed down a career path that I wasn't passionate about. Professors are helpful, available, and flexible with student athletes. I would highly recommend GV to incoming college students.
Grandview University is a very welcoming University with a wealth of community service. Grandview is a small private college with the right class sizes and professors who care and make sure you achieve your goals/dreams! I choose Grandview for their diverse population and course offerings and a plus the campus is beautiful! I developed so much, and was involved with four campus organizations. And President Henning is a hands on President. I could go on about Grandview it was my best choice and excellent learning environment. I would invite everyone to take a campus tour to West Des Moines to visit GrandView University!
