If you are from the tri-cities area, or anywhere in northern Michigan, you will probably like SVSU. However, if you're from downstate or out-of-state… Please, just keep walking. I transferred up here and I am already thinking of leaving. Most of the teachers really suck here (few good ones), NO ONE is interested in having a college social life or even studying with other people, and the clubs/events here are jokes. I volunteered to get involved, signed up, and they never contacted me and the event passed. Wtf? I'm actually a pre-Occupational Therapy major, and let me tell you, the grad. school pass rate for the NBCOT is very, very low compared to other schools. A lot of your schoolwork is BUSYWORK, and I do not feel like I am being taught a damn thing. SVSU is struggling to find its niche in a market of colleges, and they are focusing on all the wrong things. The parking is HORRIBLE here if you are a commuter. There is -nothing- to do around here, but people from rural areas who attend school (the sum is pretty large here) find that this area has a lot to offer since it has stores other than Wal-Mart. This school really sucks, and I am definitely transferring for graduate school. Oh, and definitely take your pre-reqs at Delta, or a community college. Don't waste your money on their crappy, abundant, waste-of-time gen. eds.
