Many of the now 332 Larry Nassar survivors took to social media, sharing their thoughts on the settlement.

Many said they are grateful to reach a settlement with Michigan State University.

They said it’s one that reflects the incredible damage which took place on campus.

But they also said, this is just the beginning and they still have so much work to do.

FOX66/ NBC25 also caught up with Grace French, a Nassar survivor, who spoke at the House committee hearing in Lansing.

She spoke in support of legislation that would extend the statute of limitations on sexual abuse complaints, in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal.

"Because I think the settlement, like I said, is a first step, but there's so much we can do,” French said. “And this policy change is preventative. Instead of coming from, ‘Oh this happened… what can we do to settle?’ Instead it should be, ‘What can we do to make sure that this never happens again?’".

While many of the survivors, like Grace, are grateful for the historic settlement amount, they said it isn't about the money.

They said they will continue to push for change at the university and all institutions with power.

Below are some tweets from survivors, following the settlement:
