Get Involved. Become More.

Getting involved at Grand Valley is just as important as getting to class on time, using your dining dollars, or wearing pants to class (we’ve all had that nightmare). It’s time to take your first step into a world of fulfilling community service, lifelong new friends, and fun homework-less activities. Here’s how you you can get involved with the Office of Student Life.


Grand Valley has over 400 Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) to explore. Join a RSO to expand your passions, build lasting friendships, gain leadership skills, boost your resume, and have fun!


Don't miss out on iconic Campus Activities Board (CAB) events like Presidents' Ball, Silent Disco, the Spring Concert, LakerPalooza, and MORE! Attending on-campus events is a great way to meet new people and get involved with the campus community.


Fraternities and sororities provide a sense of community, belonging, support, leadership development opportunities, philanthropic opportunities, and more.


The Civic Engagement Team within Student Life hosts events and opportunities like blood drives, Beach Clean-Up, Make a Difference Day, Drop-In Days of Service, voter engagement events, and more. Give back to the community and make the world a better place!

Attend impactful events that will boost your resume and help you grow both personally and professionally.
