Young Alumni Council

Established in May of 2008, the Young Alumni Council was formed for the purpose of addressing issues related to, and advocating for the needs of Young Alumni. They are the voice of GVSU Young Alumni, working toward unity in meaningful experiences, and stronger connections with GVSU. The YAC also creates and plans multiple events throughout the year.
