The Office

The Promotions Office is made up of a handful of talented and motivated young professionals, who believe that being actively involved in the campus community (outside of the classroom) will benefit students' growth as individuals. Through our work we seek to create content which informs, educates, and inspires the GVSU community.

Our clients include offices, departments, and student organizations from across the university. We produce a wide range of promotional materials in various mediums including print, video, photo, as well as provide a handful of other services.

Our office is a department within the Division of Student Affairs.
