Mike Lichterman: "Truly enjoyed what I was able to hear, and I thought the format (community leader interviewing community leader) was unique and very enjoyable. Thank you!"

Bradley Charles: "The venue was great! A bit of a step up from Peps. Also, the stories we got to hear from our speaker were astonishing."

Jessica Scudder: "Very much enjoyed it!! I think part of the sound issue may have been that he was fighting a cold too?? The event was awesome overall and space was nice."

Jeff Wanner: "Thanks for hosting yet another quality GVSU Alumni Social gathering the other day. I find those events extremely fascinating, both in terms of the caliber of  professional that agrees to speak as well as the depth and breadth of topics covered. I always leave those events feeling energized and determined to be successful in the West Michigan marketplace."
