According to an article published by Wood TV 8 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Grand Valley has been recognized as one of “America’s 100 Best College Buys” for 14 years in a row and was ranked the top “up and coming” institution in the Midwest by U.S. News & World Report. Offering more than 200 areas of study, GVSU places high expectations on their students and future graduates, and the staff is ready to do all they can to help each student reach their full potential
Four students who have benefited from their education at GVSU are Matt McNamara, Erik Scholten, Ana Galloway, and Emma Trout. In August of 2010, they made a trip to Arusha, Tanzania. Their goal was to get clean water to the area. McNamara, Scholten, and Galloway are American Humanics NextGen Award recipients who used their internship stipend money to buy equipment and supplies to help achieve the clean water goal.
Not only did these students achieve this goal, but they received so much more from the kindness of the people in Africa. Scholten said of his experience, “Outside of completing our project at hand, all we wanted to do was take in as much of the culture as possible. The experiences will last a lifetime. That’s not a testament to anything we did, but just how rich with life the people were toward us.”
