Student Scholars Day (SSD)
SSD is held once each year to celebrate the scholarship and creative work performed by GVSU students. The day showcases faculty-mentored student work, shared through many venues, including (but not limited to) oral presentations, discussion and panel sessions, fine arts exhibits and performances, and poster presentations.
SSD projects may be initiated as part of a course or as independent collaborations with faculty. GVSU encourages all students to consider enhancing their personal and professional development by engaging in scholarly and creative work with faculty, and to share their work with the GVSU community.

Women's Center Art Program
Each year, the Women's Center puts out a call for works of art to be displayed in our space. The center believes that the function of art is to challenge our perceptions and to help us create new meaning and understanding. The Women's Center is committed to using art as a form of expression for women. The exhibit focuses on a small number of student works that celebrate and highlight women's diverse experiences.
