A Meaningful Investment
We know higher education is an important investment. That’s why we are invested in making your learning experience well-rounded and meaningful. Hands-on learning and other fieldwork not only deepen your mastery of your discipline but also give you the edge employers will seek.
Grand Valley has an unlimited amount of resources. Like the career center-- they help a lot with internships and that experience is such a bonus.
All the class sizes are very small but the professors not only brought real life experience to it, it was a lot of case based and a lot of experiential based learning.
I don't know anything about Israel or the Middle East so getting to come here with a professor who's been here and with classmates made it really approachable. I think of it as one little tiny step into the real world.
The classes do a great job of exposing you to different areas of science. In one of my classes right now we get to work in the new greenhouse. And that's something I would never get to do with my own research.
I actually went to Grand Valley's Small Business Development Center. With that program, I was able to actually write the business plan that got us the funding for this location.
As a direct result of the education I got at Grand Valley has enabled me to be able to the impact on the lives of not only my community but on the entire world. And that's pretty amazing.
