Valley City State University Reviews
Valley City State University is a smaller school, which allows for more one-on-one contact with professors. I feel like the professors actually care about my college career since their classes are so small they can learn my name. Valley City State has also created a wide array of opportunities to have fun and meet people. I know students who drive from nearby schools just to come to VCSU activities!
Great school, small, and professors are really hands on and in touch with students. The campus is beautiful, especially during winter and seeing a blanket of snow cover.
Valley is a nice small school that will allow you to get an education but also learn a lot about yourself. The weather is also brutal so you learn how much you don't like being cold. It is a nice cute campus and has a lot of diversity so it is nice and if you are an open minded person you will really enjoy it here. The teachers and staff are amazing at helping you with whatever you need and helping you find plans that fit just for you.
