Finding fun fall activities in West Michigan

As October comes to a close, the fall season has brought in beautiful and colorful leaves, cooler temperatures and a plethora of autumn activities to do. Grand Valley State University Lakers have the great opportunity to be in the heart of West Michigan with the great scenery it provides. Before the snow hits the ground, be sure to find some fun fall things to do like going out to corn mazes or going to a haunted house or picking a giant pumpkin to carve.

Global Laker Night to bring alumni, current students together

While Grand Valley State University’s Padnos International Center hosts various study abroad fairs during the academic school year, the center also hosts a “Global Laker Night” so undergraduate students can meet with study abroad alumni in an informal environment.
