Saginaw valley state university is just an okAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
Saginaw valley state university is just an ok university...the university has spent a lot this year to improve campus and it really has worked out well..you get access to resources and technology and faculty easily..classes are small you get more attention...the disadvantages of this univ is that it does not answer your needs...if you face some problem regarding anything you will find yoursellf just roaming all over and the place and ending up where you started...students are not friendly at all probably because they come from undeveloped cities specially in the northern michigan..before applying make sure u get all ur answers regarding your program..credits and aid

Question
My experience at SVSU has been mixed.AverageHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
My experience at SVSU has been mixed... The campus has been under construction for years and has made parking very difficult. The library has been the biggest pain... for a while we needed to wear hard hats in order to access parts of the library. I get the impression most of the staff would prefer to be somewhere else. There are some very good instructors but even they seem a little bored by their surroundings. I have found the other students to be very friendly and easy to get along with. Looking back, I am happy with the education I have received and the friends I have made. I will recommend this school to my kids.

Question
The teachers are bulliedQuite BrightEnglish
The teachers are bullied into giving good grades by an evaluation process that relies too heavily on student evaluations, which are often influenced by grades. Students are sheltered, sexist, and racist.
