GVSU students rally for state education support
Posted on March 16, 2010
ALLENDALE, Mich. — Students from Grand Valley State University will be joining students from other public universities around the state to rally support for higher education.
The Student Association of Michigan and the student governments at each public university are hosting the rally called the Lansing Blitz on March 25.
“This rally will serve as a wake-up call to state lawmakers,” said Autumn Trombka, Grand Valley Student Senate president. “They will hear from students about how devastating cuts in higher education have been to our institutions and to the individuals who represent the future of this state.”
Grand Valley’s Student Senate is providing a bus to Lansing for students who want to attend. There is a $10 refundable cash deposit made when the student signs up and gets a ticket to the rally. That money will be returned when the student boards the bus.
The bus will leave Kirkhof Center on March 25 at 9 a.m. and will return at approximately 3:30 p.m. Tickets are available now at the Student Senate Office in the lower level of the Kirkhof Center.
