Alumni in 5 Spotlights
In 2017 I was on my sorority's executive board, Alpha Sigma Tau. I have always loved participating in sorority event coordination, helping train new members, and volunteering at Habitat for Humanity with my sorority sisters.
When I was a freshman, there was quite a snowy winter. One day, around the weekend lunch rush around Kleiner, there was a large crowd mingling outside the building.
I miss the physics club area all the time! We had a space within Padnos where physics students could congregate, collab on projects, and work through tough problems on whiteboards.
I used to love walking/jogging around Allendale campus, in any weather, between classes. I love the outdoors, and there was a lot of natural beauty on campus.
Grand Valley gave me some of the best memories, such as studying abroad in Ghana with the Honors College, working at the Dean of Students office and CLAS advising.
It's so hard to choose one GVSU memory. Some of my best memories include hall hockey in Pew (sorry about all the noise everyone), all the intramural sports, Relay for Life, and traveling down to Alabama to watch Grand Valley win a national championship.
One of my favorite GV memories is the bus trip from Michigan to the Undergraduate McNair Scholars conference in Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY.
My favorite GV memory was when three other GVSU students and I went to CalvinHacks and won third place with a Chrome clickbait detector.
One of my favorite memories at GV was being a Graduate Assistant. This opportunity allowed me to work closely with faculty professors and receive mentorship in both my research and professional journey.
During my Junior year, GVSU sent me and three other students to travel out to Palo Alto, CA for a meetup through the University Innovation Fellows.
