Join Alumni Relations for the Read with Lakers summer reading activity. Share your summer reading list with Grand Valley alumni. As you read books that match the prompts, fill in the corresponding square with your book title or location. A player wins once they have filled in five squares in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row.
Submit your bingo card to the Grand Valley Alumni Relations team by email or tag us on Facebook or Instagram. We will be sure to share with fellow Lakers.
An annual check of your website profile will ensure that your rank displays correctly and that your new book isn’t just “coming soon”.
Does your unit still carry vestiges of a previous strategic plan? Websites are an important expression of what your unit represents as our new provost, new faculty, and prospective students look to the web to learn more about our units.
