We are looking forward to your arrival on campus this fall and would like to extend an invitation for you to participate in Grand Valley State University’s Affinity Orientation programs. This three-day orientation is designed for all students, especially for students that identify as Asian, Black/African American culture, Latino/a/x and/or Hispanic, and Native American - to welcome you to campus, help you connect with fellow students, faculty and staff and navigate the many campus and community resources available to you. It takes place prior to Transitions: New Student Orientation. These programs are intentionally designed to create culturally-responsive and educational spaces for our diverse communities. Programming is open to students regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, or other protected identity.
