Founders Day is celebrated each year to honor the 282 individuals who came together to start the vision and foundation of Grand Valley State University. The inaugural Founders Day in Fall 2013 celebrated Grand Valley's history and started one of the newest traditions on campus. The main event was the unveiling of the L. William "Bill" Seidman statue in front of the Mary Idema Pew Library.
