If you're the type of person who came from a small town in Michigan that didn't have a lot of activity, Grand Valley might be the place for you. Coming from a suburb of Chicago and usually having a lot of things to do, I'm bored to death on Grand Valley's campus. There is nothing there besides the dorms, the library, and the rec center. The campus is beautiful, the classes and teachers are great, and the dorms are not too bad, but there is no activity going on. The majority of people go home or to other colleges on the weekends. This is not the school for you if you don't know a lot of people here and are not interested in Greek Life. If you're looking for any type of party, they're all off campus. Nothing is within walking distance, so you either have to drive or wait 40 minutes for a bus and the so-called "good" parties get shut down by 12 or 12:30. There are some positive aspects of Grand Valley, but this is definitely not the school for me.
responseWhen you are 21 you get to enjoy Grand Rapids (A.K.A. Beer City) where there is tons of social life!
