GVSU named a Best Regional College by Princeton Review

  • Students at The Connection on the Allendale Campus.

Posted on August 14, 2017

Grand Valley State University has been named a 2018 "Best Regional College" by The Princeton Review. Schools were selected primarily for excellent academic programs, and student feedback from individual surveys was also taken into account.

Students were asked to rate their own schools on several issues, from accessibility of professors to the quality of food on campus, and answer questions about their experiences and campus life. Grand Valley students said the university has "a small college feel with the opportunities of a large university" and noted small class sizes and professors who are invested in the success of their students.

Grand Valley State University, one of the 100 largest universities in the nation, attracts more than 25,000 students with high-quality programs and state-of-the-art facilities. Grand Valley is a comprehensive university serving students from all 83 Michigan counties and dozens of other states and foreign countries. Grand Valley offers 88 undergraduate and 38 graduate degree programs from campuses in Allendale, Grand Rapids and Holland, and from centers in Muskegon, Traverse City and Detroit.
