I am an upperclassmen at Grand Valley State University in the Liberal Studies program. GVSU is the perfect fit for my learning style because of the personal attention I receive from faculty members here and also the small class sizes. I continue to have meaningful interactions with the students and faculty in the classes for my major and also while exploring the liberal education program. I believe that I have developed critical thinking skills through the academic rigor that will help advance me as a future leader of the 21st generation.
Last year, I had the opportunity to participate in graduate-level research as an undergraduate service (link to sample OURS research project). This hands-on learning experience was eye opening and directly inspired me to pursue a masters degree upon graduation.
