Why did you choose to attend Grand Valley?
I heard about Grand Valley through the rowing team. We started looking into the faculty that teach here and it turns out that they're from some of the best universities around the whole nation.

What do you like best about Grand Valley?
I'm continually astounded and humbled by the caliber of the faculty that teach here and the sincere interest that they have in the success of their students.

How have you benefited from Grand Valley's liberal education foundation?
Without a liberal education you don't have the means to evaluate the successes or failures that we see in the world holistically.

How will Grand Valley help you meet your future goals?
I've had the privilege to engage in professional and leadership development opportunities, and to build incredible networks with peers and mentors.

How has the Honors College enhanced your overall education?
There's no doubt that through your experience in the Honors College you become connected with some of the brightest students and faculty. Being exposed to those kinds of people help you to push your own horizons.

How have you benefitted from living in Honors College housing?
There's a lot of space in Niemeyer for students to meet with other students or faculty members. That kind of space really facilitates the success of the students who live here.

Why would you recommend the Honors College to others?
It's a comfortable living space that promotes community and encourages engagement with the faculty.
