Saginaw Valley State University Reviews
The advisors at SVSU were very helpful. It was always easy to get in to see someone when I had questions and the staff was eager to support the students. They made registering for classes stress-free.
I also had many wonderful professors! They are really the heart of SVSU. They were supportive, and always willing to help support students during class and during office hours.
My experience in college of education was a positive one. I feel that the professors really worked with us to prepare for teaching in the real world. They supported us in getting placements for student teaching and acted as a guide every step of the way. I would strongly encourage anyone going into education to look into SVSU.
At Saginaw Valley, you will not need to worry about finding something to do or not feeling at home. The school does an excellent job at accustoming all students to fit their needs the best. I am so thrilled to have picked this school and to be a cardinal!
