New and old students will see a few projects under construction as they return to the Grand Valley State University Allendale campus.
While no student wants to see their tuition bill go up, the Lanthorn recognizes that for the 2015-16 school year, it could have been a lot worse. The Grand Valley State University Board of Trustees approved raising tuition a flat 3 percent, which is below the state-imposed cap of 3.2 percent for public universities.
If the number of students keeps increasing, GVSU will never be able to catch up. More buildings and students isn't necessarily a negative thing, but perhaps all the effort the university is putting into attracting new students could be better served by focusing on the students that GVSU already has.
