Oliver Wilson Freshman Academy

Freshmen Academy

Welcome to the Oliver Wilson Freshman Academy Program.  We are very excited that you have chosen to attend Grand Valley State University and participate in the Oliver Wilson Freshman Academy. The goal of our program is to help you transition from high school into college.  We will provide academic, social, and personal support to help you accomplish your goals.   We believe that it takes a village to educate a student and hope that you will be a part of “our village” that includes academic advisors, committed faculty and staff, and peer mentors.  You will receive support and give support to other incoming freshmen and together, create a learning community that will encourage each other all the way to graduation!

Please read about all the support we have and don’t hesitate to e-mail the Admissions Office at admissions@gvsu.edu if you have any questions.
