I would only go to SVSU if you have NO other choice! I attended SVSU because of the financial aid package they gave me, making the cost next to none. At the time it felt like the best option, all colleges are the same right? Wrong. I was a nursing major at the time, which the school had a good reputation for. The general education classes however, my experience was not the best. My english professor Karyn Harris was terrible, very harsh grader, very unprofessional and lousy teacher. I recommend you avoid her at all costs If you do decide to come here. Also avoid Dr Dennis grey in the biology department and also Gary what's his name in the statistics department. I did not have much of a positive experience with professor choice, all I can say is CHOOSE THEM WISELY, use rate my to see all of the rating on your teachers. Another comment! If you like Spanish take Dr Colorado Garcia, she is fantastic, very participation oriented, she really knows how to teach!

Another concern I had with SVSU was the dorms! I went into college thinking the more roommates the merrier, less chance I won't be alone on the weekend. Being alone was exactly what I needed I had 7 other roommates all crammed in a 4 bedroom suite! The roommate selection progress is crap so make sure you find a roommate before signing up for housing, I got matched with a bunch of girls who were all best friends in high school, not a good situation.

Lastly, the social life! There is not much to do on the weekends, campus is a ghost town and the dining hall doesn't open until 11. The clubs/organizations offered at the school are very diverse so there is a lot to choose from. I did not find any that interests me myself because most are more fund raising and less volinteering. I advise you to join alternative breaks, for $200 you can go on a volunteer trip for a week!

Overall I think SVSU needs improvement, I will give it a solid 6. If you like teaching yourself the material in class, staying in your dorm like a hermit and being roomed with a polar opposite of yourself, this university will be a good fit!

I transferred out of svsu, I am at Wayne State pursuing a degree in education and I love it! So of you ever find yourself at Wayne, I would love to talk more about svsu!
