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.
The school has been a great experience for me so far! The professors are helpful and class sizes allow for a personal experience. There are resources available for assistance. The dorms are dorms! Campus involvement is encouraged and there are a variety of ways to become involved and participate. They have a great leadership team that gets students involved! There is a very diverse population on campus! The majority of students are involved athletically as well! So far it has been a good experience and look forward to the upcoming years!
From the first day I called Grand View to tell them I wanted to go back to school, they were nothing but helpful. They got me in for meetings when I wanted to visit and determine if it was best for me to come back. I met with an advisor to go over how my credits would transfer in and what my schedule would look like for the school year. They gave me the advice I needed to help me realize I wanted to go back to school and help me with my next career choice!
