Hours before Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued a stay-at-home executive order, Madelyn Back, a biomedical sciences major, moved the rest of her belongings out of her on-campus living center and headed home to Freeland, Michigan.

Back, like many other students, finished moving out ahead of the governor's March 23 "Stay Home, Stay Safe" executive order that will last three weeks.

"This was unexpected, but the process has been running smoothly," said Back.

GVSU residential buildings will close March 24 and move-out from campus housing will be suspended through April 14. 

Andy Beachnau, associate vice provost for Student Affairs & director of Housing and Health Services, said it has been sad to watch students leave and he is impressed with how students and staff have handled the extraordinary circumstances.

"We appreciate the continued display of support and cooperation as we work together to protect the health and safety of the Laker community," said Beachnau. "Like true Lakers, we've anchored up and met the need. Be well and stay home."
