The type of person that should attend GVSU is a student that enjoys a close knit community. Grand Valley has a smaller campus and it is common to see familiar faces every day no matter where you go. Also, the class sizes tend to be average, or similar to those of a high school class environment, which allows more one-on-one time between teacher and student. This is the perfect environment for a student that finds it easier to learn by hands on experiences and not in huge lecture halls. Lastly, us "Lakers" love our clubs, fraternities, and sports, so this is a great school for anyone that is interested in getting involved in any of the three.

I don't think it is possible to sum up Grand Valleys student population with just one type of student. Just by taking a look at the clubs offered, you can start to get an idea of how diverse the campus is. There is a quidditch team alongside the football team, from Greek life to geek life, Grand Valley really encompasses every type of student.

Grand Valley doesn't have a typical high school student. Grand Valley is a very diverse place and really appeals to all types of students. There are some traits that I frequently see at GV however, for instance many people are very friendly, you rarely eve have to open the door for yourself because everyone holds the door for each other.

Although this question could be answered in many different ways because of the diversity of the students at GVSU, I'll answer in from my own experience. The students I have known that now attend GVSU were hard-working, dedicated to whatever they do, and were involved in school activities while they attended high school. A hard-working student who is there to take a career seriously, should apply to Grand Valley State University. The school offers many classes and internships that are specific to your major, to enhance your learning experience.

Grand Valley looks for students that are intellectually curious and who want to create their own identity at college. Largely, these were students who did not want to go to a big school for a name, but wanted a good education.

I would say that every single person I've met here at GVSU is different. Anyone can attend GVSU. I've met people from different states, from the east side of Michigan, from down the road, and everywhere else. We also have a large population of international students.
