Of course Grand Valley isn’t all bad! There are a butt-load of reasons to attend and love Grand Valley but sometimes the bad is just something to talk about over coffee from the Lobby Shop.
As if never having anywhere to park wasn’t infuriating enough, parking tickets are going to increase in price next year. Oh, and that’s not all folks, day passes will go from free to $6 starting next year as well. If the goal of these new changes is to piss students off, it’s working. Perhaps too well.

9.) Fresh Food Co.:
As everyone’s least favorite place to eat and the bane of quality food, Fresh is disgusting. Sure you can eat as much as you want, but afterwards your insides will want to be on your outside. Unless it’s breakfast, in which case a brave few have entered that battlefield, survived, and reported it to be surprisingly good.
Dear GV Student WiFi, if you’re connected, THEN ACT LIKE IT! Sincerely, every student ever. Sure, slow WiFi can be a drag when you’re trying to watch porn or Netflix or something, but it’s called GV “Student” for a reason. Sometimes we actually use it to complete school-related tasks! And it would be nice to have decent internet access then.
Speaking of WiFi and other things our tuition goes towards, it’s too damn high. A lot of students choose GVSU specifically because of the lower cost than other schools *cough* MSU. Every student’s got a friend that ended up getting fucked over by tuition, in one way or another.
6.) SVSU (Apparently):
How long are we going to milk this whole “rivalry” against SVSU, GV? It’s not even a rivalry when GV clearly doesn’t even participate in the shenanigans. SVSU’s almost not even worth any slander as the only people who go to SVSU are people who wanted to go somewhere other than community college, but couldn’t get in anywhere else. And that’s the gospel truth.
If you can’t tell by now, GVSU students don’t like to pay for things (i.e. parking, tuition, bad food, etc.), but we especially don’t like paying for textbooks. Even Kanye is on our side about this one! Sure, he’s probably never paid for a textbook in his life, but if there’s one thing rich people know, it’s how to keep their money.
Does it really make sense to rag on a group of people based simply on their age? Of course not, but that doesn’t excuse lanyard-wearing, Copeland-living, annoying question-asking freshies who think college is all fun and games. We were all once them, but if we had to grow up, they have to as well just like everyone else.
As previously mentioned, we’ve grown up, but we really didn’t want to. In fact, there’s a lot of unanswered questions that no one cares to answer. How do taxes and mortgages and stuff work? Will we have jobs when we graduate? Was college even worth it? No really, was it? Haha, just asking for a friend.
2.) Lack of Snow Days:
Not only are snow days a fundamental right of students across all ages, but let’s try and remember the reason behind them. Say it together everyone: SNOW DAYS ARE FOR DAYS WHEN IT’S TOO DANGEROUS TO BE ANYWHERE BUT HOME. Try and remember that next time GVSU.
1.) The Weather:
Do we really need to explain this one? If it’s now snowing, it’s raining. If it’s not raining, it’s sunny. But if it’s sunny, it smells like manure. There’s no winning unless you’re inside.
