Making Waves Initiative 'Big Splash Week'

The goal of the Making Waves Initiative is to explore and investigate the many ways that water touches our lives, from being a life-force to defining GVSU in relation to the Grand River and Lake Michigan. 

Making Waves kicks off with a "Big Splash Week" September 15-21, with speakers, showcases, a beach clean-up, hikes, kayak rides and other events. These events take place on the Allendale and Pew Campus and the beach clean-up will be in Grand Haven.

The speakers include: Kim Nowack, chief engineer for the Mackinac Bridge, who will give a presentation, "Mackinac Bridge: Then and Now" and Peter Annin, author of "The Great Lakes Water Wars."
