Candidates for graduate assistantships in the CSAL program are invited to the Grand Valley State University Allendale Campus each year. The agenda includes information about both the academic program and graduate assistantships and a tour of campus. Time is also provided so candidates can meet with current graduate assistants to hear first hand about their experiences in the program and at Grand Valley. Job interviews for graduate assistantships will be scheduled with departments that have openings.

Invitations will be sent out after the January application deadline. Instructions for selecting interviews, signing up for housing, and a complete schedule will be included in the invitation.
