Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2008

Academics Rating

I was enrolled in the School of Communications which offered several types of classes in fields like advertising, film, etc. Most of the classes were small in size which really helped those who wanted to learn one-on-one. Professors were readily available to help you as well.

Academics Rating

Grand Valley offers many courses and opportunities. The Frederick Meijer Honors College classes seem very well put together and the professors seem very helpful. Grand Valley offers many chances to study abroad and expose yourself to new cultures and people. The academic advisors are there to help you make decisions to reach your goals and become successful.
