The university is fairly inexpensive and does offer a fairly good education as far as nursing, business, engineering and a few other choice programs. The maing problem this university has is a nonexistant social life, and if you consider at all wanting to have a "college experience" this is not the place for you. University police use swat like tactics to break up parties and hand out mips. They also have a judge that deals with mainly grand valley who will give the maximum for any alcohol related offense. This means 1st mip- \(200, 2nd mip- \)~500 dollars, 12 months probation not allowed to be around alcohol including after being 21, lose license 3 months, aa classes, drug tests. 3rd and beyond- ~$900+, lose license for full year, extremely long probation, possible jail time… etc. Basically it is a fairly good college especially for the price but don't even consider attending if you want a fun experience out of college.
responseBeing around drunk students at night is not my idea of a fun time, so I'm definitely going to consider this school because of what you said :)
