GVSU is home to students with a variety of religious and spiritual preferences. Students from differing religious sects come together on this campus to form a unified group of students. The Counseling Center has many trained staff that represent a variety of spiritual beliefs, and our office is used as a resource to get connected with a less familiar religious sect or spiritual group. Below we have listed on campus and online resources, as well as tools to advocate for your religious or spiritual beliefs. Call us at (616) 331-3266 for more info.
