    The campus is one of the cleanest and most beautiful there is. I immediately fell in love when I toured. Going in as a freshman there are plenty of chances to get to meet friends that will last you a lifetime and have experiences that are life changing. Grand valley also has about every club you could think of and they are all pretty easy to join.

    If you're planning on visiting the campus, email some professors and set up meetings with them. They want you to succeed and if you put forth the effort, they will be more than willing to guide you on your college journey.

    choose a school with the major you are interested in. otherwise, choose a school with many majors options. minimize your debt by choosing a college degree path that offers great value. balance the "hype" of a school name against the cost to attend. if you don't understand the debt you will in-cur based on your school of choice, research it today. do not graduate with tons of student debt, just so you can go to a big name school! think critically about your decision. ultimately, all college is a business, not set-up in your best financial interest. choose wisely for your best financial interests.

    It is a large campus, about 22,000 students, so make sure a large school is what you're looking for. General education classes tend to be large lectures, but as you continue on with your major the classes get smaller and the student to teacher ratio dwindles tremendously. I am in my second year and I think my largest class has only about 40 people in it so there is more one on one attention between the professors and students.
