Major: Undecided (This Major's Salary over time)
I did two years at a community college, and the way things are around here, I feel like I'm back in CC. The majority of students are very stuck up and arrogant. If you don't play sports or at least look like you do, you will not fit it easily here.

There is zero social life here. Sure, the university proudly displays its 200+ clubs, but most are either too weird to be worth joining or so elitist and exclusive that you have no chance of getting in. Most of the clubs also have a nice little habit of posting any sort of material about joing only a few days before the deadline.

GVSU spends more on pro-GVSU propoganda, trying to convince students that this is a great place, than they actually do trying to make it a great place.

If you want to make friends quickly, have a social life, and enjoy your college experience, save yourself some time, don't apply/come here. It's a waste.

responseI fully disagree with the comment above. You have to involve yourself with the college in order to enjoy the college. And with an undecided major, it is hard to enjoy classes too. Thanks for putting the college down, but for the rest of you it's a great place to be.
