Though some students have reported their situations, only 31 percent of all sexual violence cases are reported.
On Tuesday, Oct. 9, Grand Valley State University hosted a panel titled, “What Happens When You Die?” sponsored by the Kaufman Interfaith Institute in partnership with Making Choices Michigan, a registered non-profit organization devoted to changing the narrative about healthcare decision-making, including at the end of life.
The panel, held for the first time ever at GVSU, took place at the Pew Campus' Eberhard Center in downtown Grand Rapids and discussed what happens when you die, exploring the beliefs and practices of faith traditions that inform end-of-life care.
With waves of white and blue filling the stands, it was an all-hands-on-deck gameday for members of the Grand Valley Police Department. Officers from GVPD, the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department and Ferris State collaborated to handle the high attendance and spirits surrounding the game.
The GVSU men finished second and the women took fourth in weather that produced snow, rain and temperatures that never even hit the 40s. The day saw course conditions go from wet to mush to mud as time progressed.
In far from ideal conditions, Zach Panning and Enael Woldemichael finished first and second for the fourth consecutive race for the Lakers, who were narrowly defeated by Bradley University from the Missouri Valley Conference, 83-63. After Panning and Woldemichael, Tanner Chada turned in his best performance to date. Chada finished 15th and posted an 8k time of 24:57.9. Jacob Domagalski and Ben Zaremba rounded out the top five runners for the Lakers, finishing 32nd and 33rd.
The Lakers started out strong and quick, scoring their first goal in the first two minutes of the game. After a bit of bobbling around the goal, sophomore Sydney O’Donnell nabbed the ball on the left corner of the 18’ and was able to send it into the goal, unassisted. The Lakers showed great determination in keeping the Cardinals off the scoreboard, despite pressure in playing against cross-Valley rivals. Head coach Jeff Hosler said that the team doesn’t worry too much about their opponents, no matter who it is.

Grand Valley State University was established in 1960, right in the midst of the civil rights movement. At the time of opening, GVSU was predominantly white, and it wasn’t until the end of the civil rights movement that African Americans were truly integrated into the GVSU community. Years later, diversity is not only celebrated at GVSU, but is also a major priority.
To celebrate the diversity of the GVSU community, as well as recognize the history and bravery behind it, the GVSU African American Alumni Chapter is partnering with the Division of Inclusion and Equity to sponsor an event called “Paving the Way for Future Generations: Stories of African Americans Who Were Firsts at Grand Valley.” The event is taking place on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 5:45 p.m. at the Alumni House Perry Dining Room.
Even though we have been told to avoid it at all costs from the time we were young, people everywhere, every day, are still choosing to drive drunk. According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Association (NHTSA), even though fatalities from drunk-driving have fallen in the past few decades, drunk driving crashes still claim more than 10,000 lives every year. It is baffling that with all of the tragedies, consequences and possible means of transportation that thousands are still choosing to drive under the influence of alcohol. Is it merely the convenience that pushes drivers to get behind the wheel? Perhaps it is time that the friends of these drivers begin stepping in to stop these crashes from happening
BASKETBALL. IS. BACK.

I told myself I’d never write a political piece, but that was before a book full of columns by the great Mike Royko made its way into my hands.
Royko was a columnist that embodied the spirit of Chicago, for better or for worse. His columns would lift up the poor tavern keepers who were buried beneath growing redevelopments. Yet the next day, he’d be taunting one of Chicago’s deeply established cultures, such as the Irish or Polish populations.
Sexual assault awareness has become a very common and important topic of discussion at Grand Valley State University, especially in the past several years. Much of this conversation is a result of an increase in campus safety alerts that have notified the community of the numerous sexual assaults occurring on and off campus.

The No. 2 ranked Grand Valley State Lakers football team suffered their first loss of the season on Saturday, Oct. 13, dropping a home contest to the rival No. 3 Ferris State Bulldogs 35-31, dropping to 6-1 (3-1 GLIAC).
“We’re all very disappointed,” said head coach Matt Mitchell. “I think our players are very hurt that we lost the game, especially because I think there were a lot of opportunities we had out there. That wasn’t lack of effort. It wasn’t like I’m heading the locker room saying we had lack of effort. We competed.”
The Donald Sinta Quartet incorporated the historical and fresh sounds of the saxophone during their performance at the Cook-Dewitt Center on the Grand Valley State University Allendale campus. The concert was held on Oct. 10 as a part of GVSU’s Arts at Noon program.
The quartet is comprised of GVSU Saxophone Professor Dan Graser, as well as Joe Girard, Danny Hawthorne-Foss and Zach Stern. The saxophonists were united as students at the University of Michigan in November 2010 when they were chosen as the featured saxophone quartet on the Michigan Symphony’s tour of China. The choice of featuring a saxophone quartet on the tour was prompted by the 50-year anniversary of the Michigan Symphony’s tour of The Soviet Union, which featured Donald Sinta, the quartet’s professor and namesake.
