Major: Mechanical Engineering (This Major's Salary over time)
I guess this would be the perfect college for straight edges. not for me though.

engineering program is good, harder than U of M but doesn't have the same rep unfortunately. Grand Rapids is lots of fun, engineering majors will spend most of their time downtown. If your going into engineering expect to have no free time, and when you do have free time you'll just not wanna party cuz you'll be too tired. the co-op program they have at grand valley for engineers is better than any other public university in michigan, and thats why im going here.

I dont suggest going to grand valley if you like to party, or are going into any other field than engineering, nursing, or business.

as far as the low score in scolastic success, it really depends on your professor. make sure to choose wisely! vastly different difficulty levels for the exact same course depending on your professor. same thing with my rating of faculty. really depends on the professor.

ive noticed though that some engineering professors are too busy to go to half of their posted office hours, and so if you need help you need to make friends with people in your courses.

Of course other professors are in their office all day, really depends on the professor. some exams are too much work crammed into the time allotted, so you really need to study +15 hours per exam if you want to pass. Seriously, put in the work or change to business major or something.

questionWhat can be said about the co-op program. how is it useful in the long run ?
