The athletics at this school are great, almost everyone attends. The varsity sports are fun to watch but intramurals are the best! When everyone gets together to play it is fun and in the end even the loosing team is happy!
Review Your College
My overall experience at Valley City State University has been very good so far. Quite a few of my family are alumni from Valley City State University and have had great experiences from VCSU. They talk highly of VCSU and feel that they have received a good education. I really like the small size and the feeling of a small community where you are a name and not a number. It is a college where it is affordable and most professors seem to care about you and if you are in class of not. My favorite experiences are it has been easy to make true friends, be involved, and not feel overwhelmed with the size. If I would have to choose again I still would stick with VCSU because it is a great school.
I am finishing my generals up and starting to get more into my major courses. I am enjoying my courses and professors so much more in my field of study. For the most part I have had good professors and they seem to care about you as a student. The class sizes have been small, and I really like this. I am used to a small school environment and really like the special attention you get by being in a small class. I feel that the quality of my courses and professors has been okay. I really enjoy my advisor and feel she is very helpful and caring about how I am doing.
