CSAL Visitation Days

Each year, candidates for graduate assistantships in the CSAL program are invited to attend CSAL Visitation Days - a two-day event that allows them to visit Grand Valley State University's Allendale campus. The agenda includes opportunities to gain information about both the academic program and graduate assistantships as well as a tour of campus. Time is also permitted for candidates to meet with current CSAL graduate assistants in order to hear first-hand about their experiences in the program and at Grand Valley. Job interviews for CSAL graduate assistantships will be scheduled with departments that have openings. Interview days for 2020 have already took place, but if any positions are open after April 15th, we will offer virtual interviews for interested candidates.
