Going into Grand Valley I had heard a lot of things like "Its boring there, everyone goes home on the weekends" and so forth. This is not true. The majority of the people on campus or in off campus apartments stay here. Yes a large chunk of people go home, but is that really different from any other university? People do want to go home every once in a while and I do not see why Grand Valley is singled out in this when people talk about it. As to the weekend and night life here, if you cant find something to do or a party to go to there is something wrong with you or you are socially incapable. I have not had a boring week or weekend here yet. No, Grand Valley may not have the party scene caliber of Michigan State or Central Michigan, but there are plenty of parties always going on, big or small. The football games and basketball games are a blast, especially since our football team is just boss and basically whoops every team they play by 30+ points. The academics here are considered to be equal if not greater to that of Michigan State and I would have to agree. I have friends at State and we compared our homework and workload we had since we were taking similar classes and it is very comparable in difficulty. I was accepted to both Grand Valley and MSU and chose Grand Valley because of all the good things I heard about this university, and I am not looking back, I am sure I made the right choice and I love it here!
