Review Saginaw Valley State University
Campus housing is great ! The RA's are friendly and always helpful, I remember once our sink broke and the RA on duty came right over to see what happened and he called a repair man right away and even helped us clean it up a bit! First year suites are known as the worst housing but it was still great! There is a friendly atmosphere and you feel comfortable meeting people and there are kitchens and private bathrooms! Most roommates are matched well and there aren't many cases of roommates all out fighting, and if you start fighting your RA will happily help work it out. Overall Housing is great!
Svsu is a small campus which makes it feel very homey and friendly. The classes are around 20-30 kids which I am a huge fan of because it's so intimate and the teachers have a personal relationship with students. Lots of diversity with the students, my first year was an awesome experience!
I love the sense of community that is present on campus. It is close-knit and it is a very friendly atmosphere. Both the students and faculty are very supportive and welcoming. The class sizes are small, allowing the professors to get to know the students and guide them. In addition, SVSU offers many ways to get involved, such as community service, and various clubs. It's been an amazing overall experience!
