2023 ExCEL Camp a Big Success!

Thirty-one rising seniors from Battle Creek Central High School spent the week on GVSU's Allendale campus as ExCEL Scholars June 12-15, 2023.  They learned about aspects of teaching such as Culturally Responsive Teaching, developed leadership skills, participated in team-building exercises, and explored the Allendale and Pew Grand Rapids GVSU campuses.

They experienced life on campus, living in the Glenn A. Niemeyer Learning & Living Center, eating at Laker Food Co, enjoying the Recreation Center, and forming relationships with GVSU student camp counselors, faculty, and staff.  One of the highlights of the week for many was exploring Lake Michigan and Spring Lake on GVSU's D.J. Angus research vessel!
