Why did you choose to attend Grand Valley?
I chose to attend Grand Valley because the campus is beautiful. Just the all around atmosphere is amazing at Grand Valley. We have very friendly students and faculty and staff.

What do you like best about Grand Valley?
What I like best about Grand Valley are the people here. Everybody is very supportive and they want you to succeed in life, and that is a great feeling having such a family behind you.

How have you benefited from Grand Valley's liberal education foundation?
Because of Grand Valley's diverse programs I'm able to have conversations with basically anyone. I have a wide range of knowledge on topics that I probably normally wouldn't have. I can bring that into everyday conversation.

How will Grand Valley help you meet your future goals?
Grand Valley will help me meet my future goals by allowing me to critically think about situations I'm going to be facing in the future. That is very important going into the real world, be it the medical field or the psychology field, or wherever I end up.

How has the Honors College enhanced your overall education?
It opens up so many different doors for you. The Honors program opens up your mind to different perspectives that you normally wouldn't look at.

How have you benefitted from living in Honors College housing?
When I lived in Honors College housing it was really cool because you get small study rooms in Niemeyer, so your not just studying in your dorm. You can go and get a group together and study in these rooms where there are white boards you can utilize.
