Transitions is GVSU’s new student orientation program. Transitions is designed to provide intentional opportunities to build community and to share valuable information with students as they acclimate to life as Lakers. All first-year students are required to participate in Transitions.  Each student (commuter and residential) will be assigned to a small group of students, led by a Transitions Leader - an experienced GVSU student that will guide the group through various programs and activities.
