Grand Valley State University Graduate Reviews

Grand Valley State University is a great school. There are numerous amount of resources at GV. The student body supports each other and everyone feels like a family. The professors are really good and experts in their career. In a time of need, there is always someone to talk to rather the counseling center, friend, advisors, or other staff. The campus I beautiful and clean. The food is okay, could be better. GV also needs to work on diversifying the student body more. Otherwise, it is an awesome school.
