I remember tailgating at a Grand Valley playoff game in December while it was snowing. It was a great time and felt special having a home game so late in the season. The best part of Grand Valley was the people.
I have so many amazing memories from my time at Grand Valley. I was a resident assistant for several years, and I always loved throwing Halloween parties. But mostly, I cherish the memories I have hanging out with friends at Fresh Foods eating Laker Bowls
My favorite memory while attending Grand Valley happened when I was a part of the Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization. As a member, we had the opportunity to attend the chapter conference in Chicago.
During my Freshman year, I played on the Varsity Volleyball Club and absolutely loved the practices and the people I met through our travels. I even went on to play competitive beach volleyball with some of them.
During my junior and senior at GVSU, I partnered closely with Troy Farley and the Career Center to help center my aspirations and natural inclinations toward business and marketing.
There were so many, sledding down the hill on trays from the Commons, concerts, grabbing Peppino's, looking to see if "the rock" had been repainted, crossing the Little Mac (wondering if it was shaking for a reason), and finally, graduating in the spring.
Serving as a Resident Assistant for three years, building relationships with staff and students, all working to make GVSU a better place to live and learn.
My favorite GVSU memory is Mrs. Jamison's writing exploration class. I learned so much about other people in that class as she really encouraged us to open up and share our stories.
One of my favorite memories was living with 3 of my best friends in college at an apartment together.
Some of my favorite GVSU memories are sitting and chatting with Carlos Santana after his concert, meeting Walter Cronkite, and finding my best friend.
