Program Description

The WISE program at GVSU is an academic living and learning community designed for women majoring in science, mathematics, engineering or computer science.

WISE provides its residents with opportunities to network, study together, meet upperclass science majors and faculty, and attend events related to their future careers in the sciences. The WISE program offers seminar programs, common readings, study groups, advising, panel discussions, and field trips.

The WISE program opened in August 2006. The WISE living center offers a supportive environment with attractive spaces for studying and socializing, conveniently located in the heart of the GVSU Allendale campus, close to dining, the Kirkhof student center and the Mary Idema Pew Library Learning and Information Commons.

South C is home to WISE and has several common rooms available for study, complete with white boards and comfortable seating. A computer lab equipped with PCs and a laser printer is available in the building at all times.

The new South C apartments are available in 2 or 4-person units and are fully furnished with full kitchens.
