Question
Saginaw Valley tries to get you to comeQuite BrightSocial Work
Saginaw Valley tries to get you to come because of the new dorms. It is bull. You have no freedom more than 4 people in your room you will have the police at your door. This is a commuter college which I didn't know and if you live on campus everyone goes home on the weekends because it is so boring and campus police is so strict. We went to a party off-campus even and the police followed us there. So don't intend on drinking in college even if you are 21 because they make you get a permit for that and limit how much you can drink! Teachers are nice but everyone goes to class and doesn't talk, it is really hard to make friends. Save your money go to community college and go to a better university.

Question
Just not happy at this school.BrightPolitical Science
Just not happy at this school. It is lonely here unless you were lucky enough to bring friends with you. I don't find students to be friendly or interested in making new friends. The academics are ok and the professors are ok, but I am researching a transfer because I believe my mental health is being affected. If the college could find a way to stimulate campus life, it might be a good place to be. But until they figure that aspect of it out, I wouldn't recommend it, especially if you come here on your own and think you will be able to join clubs and get involved and make a lot of friends. If you are a commuter student who is just coming here to take classes, you'll be fine. If you're coming here because you think you'll have a great campus life, then you will be disappointed. I've seen this said in other reviews on this site, and is it true.
