I decided to come here because it is suppousdly now compared to MSU and UofM, but I don't see how this comparision is made. Some straight up dumb people get into this school, and it's alot like high school. It could be just because I am a freshmen and taking gen eds, but the work load is still light. The people on campus are extremly nice. You can talk to pretty much anyone. The food is good at first, but then once welcome week is over they pull out some shit on you. There isn't alot of partys rather drinking in you dorm with your friends, and alot of people smoke weed and do other drugs. The cops are physco so gvsu screws themselves over by having a dry campus and being in the middle of nowhere. Allendale is close to downtown, but no one wants to take that shitty poo poo bus. You need a car to get away. It's easy to get in a clique of friends, but that can be a great thing. Overall GVSu is better than high school, but I feel I could be having a better college experience elsewhere.
