The real cost of Presidents' Ball

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.
