The U.S. that we all know and love (at least most of the time) has been built off one very important thing: immigration. Most of the nation's citizens are descendants of people who immigrated to the country, many of whom didn’t do so politely or legally. Yes, I’m talking to you, Andrew Jackson. Our Founding Fathers were not even familiar with the idea of illegal immigration because during the 18th century, it simply did not exist. Still, this era was a pivotal time for our country as a whole, and it makes me wonder when immigration became so bad.

When the Olympics start, I put all other television programs and movies aside. For two weeks, the games are my only true form of entertainment. I love the competition, seeing people make their dreams come true and watching underdogs become victors. Mostly, though, I love watching the opening ceremony and seeing athletes from countries around the world come together.
Few sporting events can carry a current of electricity and excitement through a crowd for a full 40 minutes—plus overtime—the way the Grand Valley State women’s basketball game against the Ashland Eagles did on Thursday, Feb. 15.
By now, everybody has heard at least once that defense wins championships.
If that prophetic saying holds true for the Grand Valley State women’s basketball team in 2018, they should be getting some rings shortly.
Greeted by the most energetic home crowd of the season, the Grand Valley State men’s basketball team needed whatever boost they could get against the Ashland Eagles (17-9 overall, 10-8 GLIAC) to keep on the path to a playoff berth.
Ashland gave the Lakers their fair share of panic in the final minutes, but GVSU ended up pulling away with a 64-57 victory over the Eagles on Thursday, Feb. 15, at the GVSU Fieldhouse Arena.
Before the season even began, there was one goal the Grand Valley State men’s basketball team set to accomplish: qualify for the GLIAC Tournament.
Not only did the Lakers finally qualify for the postseason, but they did so on Senior Day, demolishing the Tiffin Dragons (7-19 overall, 3-15 GLIAC) 84-62 on Saturday, Feb. 17, at the GVSU Fieldhouse Arena. With the victory, GVSU improves to 14-12 (9-9 GLIAC), clinching a spot in the eight-team GLIAC Tournament.

Many Grand Valley State University students are completely unaware of how much Presidents' Ball costs to put on. The allocation amount is accessible, but the actual budget in full is not readily available to students, nor is it particularly transparent, despite the event's cost being described as such by many officials.
The least that students should expect from those in charge of planning and funding the event is explicit accuracy and transparency. If an event is taking place to get prospective students to come to GVSU, the students who go here now should know what they're paying for first.
A longstanding Grand Valley State University tradition designed to be a celebration of both the university president and the student senate president, Presidents’ Ball is the largest (non-athletic) student event at GVSU that consistently attracts more than 4,000 students and community members.
However, what many attendees may not know is the cost for creating such a grand night has totaled close to a quarter million dollars the past two years. They also may not know that, rather than running a profit, as university officials told the student senate, the event lost thousands of dollars in 2016 and 2017.
