My favorite Grand Valley memory has to be Toast with T.Haas. It was the last item in the GV picture bucket list to get a photo with T. Haas. I found it wonderful that a president of a college took the time to congratulate all of his graduates.

I loved being involved in dance troupe while in undergrad. Being able to choreograph and lead such a wonderful organization helped me build close friendships and is where I found my place at GV.
