Poker nights with friends in the ravines, followed by a long drive to East GR for late-night hotdogs.
One of my favorite memories at GVSU was when Redman and Method Man came to campus for a concert. Once the lights went off, we found out that almost every member of the Wu-Tang Clan was there.
Besides networking with my CSAL Cohort, my favorite memory was competing in the Sawyer competition in 2018. The competition called for students to dress like a sawyer for an opportunity to be showcased at one of the games.
One of my favorite GVSU memories is the first snowfall, walking across the bridge and seeing the large blue art piece lightly covered in snow.
Adding lights to the Varsity and Intramural fields (play on Lakers!)
In the Fall of 1966, I remember asking the athletic director if we could have a woman's crew. He said, sure. Just bring me some interested students!
Being the Victorian of the first graduating class.
My best memory would be studying abroad and teaching in South Africa in my last year of school. My first class at Grand Valley was taught by Dr. John Kilbourne and he made it every student's mission to take advantage of the opportunity, so I did.
A favorite Grand Valley memory is meeting two friends, Jill and Brad, and having all of our 300 and 400-level classes together! It was so nice to go through all that with a core group of friends!
My first football game as a student was so much fun! The buzz and excitement in the student section was something to behold and it was empowering!
