GVSU Founders Day to celebrate university's history

Fifty-seven years ago, 282 individuals put their minds and resources together to form what we now call Grand Valley State University. With a lot of hard work, they came together to raise an initial $1 million to purchase the original GVSU property.  Now, years later, GVSU will honor their hard work and dedication Wednesday, Oct. 25, at the annual Founders Day celebration. This tradition, which has been ongoing since 2013, is a collaboration between the Future Alumni Association and Laker Traditions.
