A message from Eric Stevens, Assistant Director of Student Organizations:

Student Organization Officers and Advisors, 

As you are aware, modifications on campus are being made to emphasize health and safety which will impact some student organization operations. The Office of Student Life is here to support your organization as you navigate how to continue to be an important part of the GVSU student experience.

The Office of Student Life Plans for Fall 2020 resource page has been designed to centralize student organization-specific updates. We encourage you to check this frequently as information is subject to change with new state executive orders or other decisions from GVSU.

Topics include:

  • Room reservations
  • Group meetings
  • Event Planning
  • Other expectations

Additional information will be added in August regarding Campus Life Night registration, the Student Life Fund process, travel policies, and any other pertinent updates. 

The Office of Student Life staff is available this summer Mon-Fri from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. for any questions and consulting on student organization plans for the fall. We look forward to partnering with you as we continue to navigate this unprecedented time. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Student Life. (Posted 7/23/20)

The most successful students are those who spend the 70% of their time outside of class wisely. Employers continue to look for college graduates with a wide range of experiences and leadership skills.

Students are encouraged to Become More while in college by getting involved in a wide variety of campus opportunities. The Office of Student Life has over 400+ student organizations. There are groups for everyone- from sports, to professional, to hobbies, to interfaith, and more.
