Major: Undecided (This Major's Salary over time)
Grand Valley has many great clubs with friendly people, and a great sport programs. This campus is small (can walk across campus in 20min) but beautiful. Realize the campus is in Allendale not Grand Rapids and there is absolutely nothing to do in Allendale, the town over Standale has a Meijer and Applebees and not much else. The city is a fun place to go, but it is a 30 min drive and you have to be 21 to get into the bars. The Education is fine, but I think the most annoying thing is finding things to do on the weekend, especially because MOST students go home on the weekends, This is NOT MSU, There are not many parties. Also

Grand Rapids is mainly Dutch and very religious, And many students who go here live in and around Grand Rapids, which is why they go home every weekend. Many students are conservative (left wing) and Religious, they have no problems talking about god on the way to class. Also Grand Valley is DRY campus and Police are very harsh. They go looking for any parties, which is why there aren't any, and will not just break up the party, but hold everyone and give them MIPs. I am shy and I made Friends but I was lucky and some friends I'm not completely compatible with, there just someone I can hang with. But the art program does rock!
