Rosa Lopez-Casillas

In Grand Valley's Persistence Pals program, groups of faculty and staff members meet monthly with students who could be at risk of not finishing their degrees. These groups include students from select high schools, students who are first in their families to attend college, and first-year students who live off-campus. Persistence Pals serves as a way of helping students feel welcome at the university. [Grand Valley Magazine story]
