LIFE at SVSU
ALINA ANDERSON - Elementary/Special Education, Kalamazoo
"As a freshman, I went on an alternative spring break trip to do volunteer work. The student leader of that trip wrote a letter telling me that she saw great potential in me. It made me feel like, 'I can do this.' Now as an R.A., I work to create the same supportive environment for my residents."
HANNAH ATWELL - Nursing, Montrose
"At SVSU, I am learning how to care for others, while also learning the hard work and determination needed to succeed. Plus, I continue to play the sport I love with some of my best friends."
MARCELINA FULGENCIO - Biology, Saginaw
"I've learned SVSU is a place where I can achieve my goals. My professors inspire me, and they are equipping me to make a real difference when I graduate."
SHANE McCLURE - Mechanical Engineering, Novi
"Through TKE I can help other guys grow and better themselves, and through Orientation I get the chance to show new students how I've grown and matured at SVSU - both are huge reasons why I love this university."
KYLE TILLER - Marketing, Detroit
"Cardinals are all about team. When I'm on the field, I know I'm part of something bigger than myself. We protect one another."
Life at SVSU
Athletics & OrganizationsNCAA Division II athletics never looked so fierce -- our 16 men's and women's teams dominate the court, field, track, pool and green. Students here connect, play, celebrate, laugh, rave, unwind, serve, cheer and perform. We have a lot of pride and a deep sense of community.
Students like the dorms at SVSU more than any other campus in Michigan. In fact, we were voted #1 Best Dorms in the U.S.A.(among all public universities) by Niche.com. We want every single student to feel comfortable during their time here. Our RAs and Resident Life staff go the extra mile to make sure you know that you belong here, and we are excited you chose SVSU.
We know an important part of the campus experience is the ability to have variety in terms of gathering places and dining options -- we provide both in our dining facilities. From traditional buffet-style to Subway to Starbucks to Papa Johns, we have offerings that match your taste and mood.
