Grand Valley State senior baseball pitcher Tate Brawley has secured his moment of fame not once but twice in the past week with two appearances on ESPN’s flagship highlight show, SportsCenter Top 10 Plays. Each time, he made no-look catches from the mound on screaming-line drives hit back up the middle behind his back. His first play was credited as the No. 7 play of the day on Tuesday, April 10, and the second was credited at No. 3 on Friday, April 13.
Brawley sat down with Grand Valley Lanthorn Assistant Sports Editor Brady McAtamney for a conversation about his highlights.

Our senior year of college is one that, by design, causes us to reflect. We reflect on the times we’ve had through a series of “lasts,” and we critically analyze the work we’ve done in our capstones—the culminating point of our undergraduate careers. In our communications capstone, we’ve worked with the combined knowledge and experience of the class to fully analyze community and the significance of that definition in our lives.
Furthermore, as a small group, we, the authors of this piece, have worked to identify key issues within two communities with which we are familiar. And as seniors getting ready to graduate, we thought it fitting to take the time to review our last few years as members of these two groups: Grand Valley State University students, and Grand Valley State University students with part-time jobs.
Politics have long been considered a field that is predominantly filled with old, white men. This assumption isn’t surprising considering that even today, less than 20 percent of congressional positions are filled with either a woman and/or a minority. However, this year’s election cycle has recorded a record number of women running for office, which is, in my opinion, a change for the better. One of those women is Cynthia Nixon, and she is a great example of the refreshing change that is starting to show in politics.

Grand Valley State University may be a little closer to reaching its goal for state funding.
In March, GVSU President Thomas Haas and members of student senate took the fight to Lansing, where they spoke in front of Michigan State Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker’s Appropriations Subcommittee for Higher Education. The funding on the table for higher education in Michigan as a whole was $17 million more than what Gov.

Few feelings are better than lying out to tan and enjoying the warmth of the sun, especially considering the distinct lack of sunlight in Allendale lately. To remedy this lack of warmth, many people find themselves resorting to tanning beds to get that bronzy glow. However, because of the dangers associated with the radiation brought on by tanning beds, as well as other negative side effects, frequent tanners are putting themselves at serious risk.
With nearly one dozen locations scattered near Grand Valley State University for students to utilize for tanning, it’s easier than ever for young adults to open themselves up to the risk of developing cancer at an early age as a result of frequenting tanning beds.
