The Co-Curricular program is an integral part of a LIB 100 and LIB 201 class curriculum.  Searching for appropriate events and programs can be an arduous process, we hope to simply the process for faculty and students alike. The following page has been developed to help with the search process, by listing all of the events with the LIB 100/201 designations for the Allendale and Grand Rapids Campuses, as well as Off-Campus options. It is the event organizers responsibility to post their events(s) on the GVSU Campus Calendar, links will be provided to events as they are posted. Unfortunately changes do occur to events, if event organizers to not let us know of the changes we are unable to post them to our calendar, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Co-Curricular program enjoys working with organizations, both on campus and off campus, to provide programs and events with the LIB 100/201 designation to enhance student growth!
