Family Appreciation Week - September 13-19, 2020

Our traditional Family Weekend is being re-created this year to become Family Appreciation Week. 

Due to the current pandemic situation, our events will be happening virtually and families and supporters will be able to join with us wherever they are and keep a safe social distance. The safety and well-being of GVSU students and families is our priority.

Due to the current mandatory "Staying in Place" order issued by Ottawa County Department of Public Health, our plans have changed with regard to visitors on campus.

The order means students may not visit, socialize or congregate with people except their immediate roommates, and all must be following health mandates.

Students cannot return to their home address unless for an emergency, per the order.
