Semester in Grand Rapids (SIGR) is an exciting opportunity to deeply engage with the community of Grand Rapids. In this immersive program, students take classes about the city, intern at a community-based organization, and have the option to live downtown. Earn 9 undergraduate credits including an internship, SWS, U.S. Diversity, and two Issues courses. SIGR is open to students of all majors, and is best suited to juniors and seniors.
“My internship put me in so many situations I don't think I would have ever been in otherwise, so I learned a lot about myself and the community I was working in. It was a really unique experience that I grew a lot from!”Delaney McDonald
