Saginaw Valley State University Reviews
SVSU is great for those who want a family-like experience in school. The small campus and class sizes give you more opportunity to communicate with the professors one-on-one. The school is close to the mall, restaurants and local areas. STARS bus lines run through the campus as well so it is easy to go shopping. If I would change anything it would be to add more Asian language classes and cultural classes. There aren't many courses about Asian culture which would bring in more students. There are a variety of clubs and activities for the students, such as the East Asian Culture Club created by myself! SVSU gives you the opportunity to lead and participate.
Saginaw Valley State University has been a great choice for me! It's close to home, so I can commute back and forth. The classes are smaller, so you get to know the professors teaching your classes. SVSU has a very safe environment, with a lot of safety measures put in place in case of an emergency. Because the campus is smaller than some, it is not uncommon to have the same students in some of your classes. This lets you get to know more people, which makes the university feel more like home. I've had a great experience at SVSU so far!
Here at Saginaw Valley everybody is welcoming and easy to talk to. It's full of friendly people and helpful professors. The campus is well put together, its almost impossible to get lost! Resident Assistants have the answers to any questions you may have.
