Laker students, alumni, faculty & staff share their Global GVSU Story.
I moved to the US in August 2011 from Sri Lanka and it was my first
time out of the country. GVSU faculty, international office staff
(especially, Kate Stoetzner) and all my friends at GV made me feel
like home from day one. I completed both my Bachelors and Masters at
GVSU. I'm very grateful to the faculty at school of Accounting for the
career mentoring they provided. Everyone I met at GV was so helpful
and being an international student there was the best part of my life.
I didn't really realize how exceptional GV is until I studied at two
different universities afterwards.
I made great friends who I still talk to, even though most of
them are thousand miles away. I got my first internship and my first
job through GVSU career services and they have been tremendously
helpful (shout out to Lori Staggs). I believe the opportunities I was
given and friendships I made at GV made a major impact in my life and
made who I am today. Therefore, GVSU will always will be my second home!
