Why did you choose to attend Grand Valley?
The friendly atmosphere of Grand Valley was what really drew me in, and the beauty of Grand Valley's campus.

What do you like best about Grand Valley?
My favorite part about Grand Valley is how small the classes are and how the professors take the time to get to know the students.

How have you benefited from Grand Valley's liberal education foundation?
By having the opportunity to take classes in areas that are outside of my field. It brings a global perspective to my learning instead of just a narrow perspective to what I've learned.

How will Grand Valley help you meet your future goals?
Going into the College of Education, the teacher assisting and student teaching program will really prepare me to teach in the classroom.

How has Grand Valley's faculty made a difference in your college experience?
The time they have taken for their students is something I really appreciate. I feel like I'm not just a number.

What advice would you give to prospective students?
Grand Valley has given me a ton of opportunities that I wouldn't have thought that I would have. They give you opportunities to do research or internships.
