Small Town close to Grand Rapids, Decent location, POOR weather, Becoming a very crowded campus, Take classes at downtown location if possible. Sports and extracurricular activities are decent. Choose someplace else if you are looking for a party school!

Not bad overall

Responses
commentIt got a little weird after I disclosed my disability. They asked me to carry a letter around to each professor and doctorates demonstrated their ignorance. I got some polite conversations from staff asking me to leave, phone calls that were a little more aggressive, and surprise meetings in downtown GR that fit the bill. They have this disability support program, but if your disability bears stigma, you might get a nasty reaction from the community trying to keep the population clean. The curriculum repeated itself, we debated Freud in 400 level psych classes and repeated theory introduced 4 years ago; no application. Always keep in mind—lake effect—snow that's a killer.
