10 Things That Totally Suck At Grand Valley State University

I LOVE this School, but everywhere you go, there are going to be some things that get under your skin…

10 Things That Totally Suck At Grand Valley State University

Students who love their school will still be able to list off the aspects that suck about it. If you go to Grand Valley State University, here’s 10 things that suck that I’m sure you can relate to.

1. Size:

This can be a good thing but not when you try to get a quick bite to eat on campus and end up bumping into everyone. It can range from co-workers to classmates to old high school peeps you were hoping you could avoid.

2. Doors:

Everyone holds doors open for people at Grand Valley State University. At times, it gets to a degree of politeness that just seems weird. You don’t have to wait 1-5 minutes for me so I can get through the door. Thanks, but no thanks.

3. Tailgating.

We get it, it gets crazy before games. But please put your empty bottles in the trash!

4. Printing:

This has just recently become a problem but avoiding printing at certain buildings can be easier said than done at Grand Valley State University. Not to mention that you aren't allowed to print past 500 pages a semester so be careful what you print.

5. Food:

Rotate your on-campus food choices. It can get repetitive really quickly.

6. Textbooks:

They are expensive as hell, but at least GVSU has the price comparison feature. Most schools' bookstores aren’t cheap either but at least Grand Valley State University doesn’t hide which places give you a better deal.

7. Printing:

Yes, this deserves another spot. Chances are you hit a good day if the printer isn’t down somewhere. Don’t try fixing it yourself either. It WILL get pissed at you.

8. Parking:

Parking is incredibly expensive due to lack of it at Grand Valley State University. Don’t be that guy who thinks they can get away with parking in the handicap spot in the landing zone under fuel. Guess what? You can’t.

9. Buses:

If you aren’t even slightly buzzed and you’re on a bus during the weekend, you are in for a world of obnoxious annoyance due to all the party-ers. Skip the trip and phone a friend. It isn’t worth it.

10. If you go under the blue bridge structure you aren’t going to have bad luck.

You will get weird stares from people who believe in the superstition though. Yes it is annoying having to deal with societal norms but don’t be the odd one out in this situation at Grand Valley State University.

At the end of their last episode, "Grey's Anatomy" teased the return of another character from Meredith's past. After the return of Patrick Dempsey's, Derek Shepherd, Grey's fans know that no one is off-limits.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
